Around the World
The Presbyterian Outreach Foundation
When there are extraordinary global challenges that threaten the body of Christ, First Pres Maumee often responds through partnerships with The Presbyterian Outreach Foundation. We have given significantly to support Christian refugees in Syria suffering deeply as a result of that country's civil war while also offering support to Presbyterians in Iraq who have lost their homes and livelihood because of the ISIS terrorist group. On an on-going basis, we support missionaries in both Syria and Iraq, whose identities cannot be published due to security reasons.
Compassion International is a Christian child advocacy ministry that helps more than 1.3 million children in 26 countries, releasing children from spiritual, economic, social and physical poverty and enabling them to become responsible, fulfilled Christian adults. Many First Pres Maumee members sponsor children through Compassion. Not only do they provide for the child through a $38/month sponsorship, but they also intentionally build Christ-centered relationships with the child through letters and small gifts. While our sponsored children can be found around the globe, we are focusing our efforts in the Dominican Republic.
Presbyterian Frontier Fellowship
First Pres Maumee is pleased to partner with Presbyterian Frontier Fellowship (PFF).
Their mission is "As part of God's mission to the world, we invite believing communities to engage people groups where the Good News of Jesus and His Kingdom is not yet known."

Operation Christmas Child
Through Operation Christmas Child, a Samaritan’s Purse project, you can deliver good news and great joy to children around the world through shoeboxes packed with toys, school supplies, hygiene items and God’s love. One shoebox can restore hope that there is a God who loves, cares and is concerned about the details of a child’s life. And when you bless a child, you minister to parents as well. Through shoeboxes, churches grow, disciples multiply and doors open for the Gospel. You can be a part of this amazing program at First Pres Maumee.
