Work for Peace and Justice in the World

Welcome Refugees.  We are organizing housing, spiritual support, food, schooling, health care, post traumatic stress and medical support for a refugee family of eight who are hoping to move to Ipswich this summer.  Join us!

Address homelessness.  We work with the local organization “Family Promise”, which supports local homeless families as they transition out of homelessness. Four times a year, a network of families will come to Ipswich to stay in the Presbyterian Church while we assist their search for jobs and housing. We provide the meals and moral support. Please speak with Rebecca or Kalapi Johnson if you would like to get involved.

Addiction Recovery in Ipswich: Are you an addict? Do you have a family member or neighbor who has asked you for help? Project HOPE began in Ipswich on July 1. Addicts seeking treatment are welcome at the police station, and two week addiction treatment is provided.  Fifteen angels from First Church and several other congregations and communities are standing by waiting to provide companionship, support, and kindness.

E-mail us at the First Church office to sign up.
