Special to Iredell Free News

The First Presbyterian Church in Statesville is happy to assist local ministries in caring for God’s people and sharing the love of Christ with our neighbors. The mission of the First Presbyterian Church’s Annual Mission Grant is to enhance and strengthen our community by offering a grant up to $10,000 for eligible organizations.

The Annual Missions Grant is open to 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations in North Carolina connected to and serving the residents of Iredell County. Eligible funding areas include any project that will enhance the ability to serve an organization’s clients and our community.

Funding for general operating costs will not be considered.

“The First Presbyterian Church Statesville has long been a pillar of support for the Iredell County community,” says Mission Committee Chairperson Lamar Austin. “This Mission Grant will continue the legacy and support of the First Presbyterian Church in the Iredell area.”

Applications opened Friday, July 1, and will close on Sunday, July 31. The grant recipient will be announced in November, and the award will be made at the first of the year.

Organizations may obtain the grant application online at www.fpcstatesville.org, and hard copies will be available Monday – Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the First Presbyterian Church office.
