West Gastonia Boys and Girls Club
First ARP Church supports the work of the West Gastonia Boys and Girls Club through and ongoing seasonal and special events.
Our children’s ministry staff and volunteers also plan quarterly birthday parties and seasonal events at the Club. Easter Egg Hunts, Christmas Dramas, Summer Crafts, and Fall Festivals are among the events that volunteers have sponsored.
York Chester Middle School
Over the past several years, First ARP members and staff have served as mentors to individual and small groups of students at York Chester Middle School. Once-a-week visits have provided wonderful opportunities to make relationships with students and staff. We have had the privilege of integrating some of these students and their families into the overall ministry of First ARP Church.
We also conduct a weekly Bible Club at the school. This meets on Wednesday mornings from 7:45-8:20am. This is a time of games, fellowship and study of God’s Word. If you would like to participate contact Courtney McKeown.
