Serve with Local Ministries

God’s people are challenged through the Scriptures to care – for Jesus’ sake – about the communities in which they live.  Old Testament believers who found themselves in exile were told, “…seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you…” (Jeremiah 29:7).  Jesus said, “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.” (Matthew 5:14). 

The following ministry opportunities are ways we might increasingly care for the welfare of our city.


Ezekiel Ministries

Ezekiel Ministries exists to share the love and truth of Jesus to families in inner-city Columbia by providing tangible help in the areas of education and family literacy. Volunteers are needed to help facilitate their after-school programs which includes helping students in 5k-5th grade with homework, creating crafts, and science experiments. 

William S. Hall Bible Study

William S. Hall is South Carolina's psychiatric institute for children and adolescents. Volunteers are needed to run a weekly Sunday afternoon Bible study for these children and adolescents, working with their onsite chaplain. 

Edwards Memorial ARP Tutoring

Our sister church is beginning an after-school tutoring program for high school students, specifically the Karen refugees from Burma who have settled in the neighborhood around the church. Volunteers are needed to tutor students in English and math, once a week, preferably Thursday, in the afternoon.


If you are interested in getting involved with any of these opportunities, please contact Alana Tyler at atyler@firstprescolumbia.org.
