Our goal is to "see" the needs of our neighbors and serve them as Jesus would.

Parachute Team

Sometimes people find themselves in need of emergency assistance from unforeseen circumstances.

First Church Oviedo has created a Parachute Team that can be assembled quickly to provide immediate assistance to those who find themselves in a crisis situation with nowhere to turn.

No special skills are required to be a part of this team, although special skills are always welcome.

If you would like to be added to the Parachute Team, please click the volunteer link above or call Pastor Patina at the church office to sign up.  You will receive communications of needs in our community as they arise.
