Outreach ministries: where community and church meet


We Meet is an evening dinner which is meant to promote togetherness. Church members, along with some community members and college students gather, reacquaint ourselves, and enjoy a meal together. No agenda, no fuss, just checking in with each other.

We meet is a great way to have stimulating conversations at the dinner table. We Meet begins at 6 pm on Wednesdays, that are not holidays … except in the summer months.

We subscribe to the mission statement of all More Light Presbyterians ( ) in North American: “Following the risen Christ, and seeking to make the Church a true community of hospitality, the mission of More Light Presbyterians is to work for the full participation of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, and asexual (LGBTQIA+) people in the life, ministry and witness of the Presbyterian Church (USA) and in society.” Inclusive by intention, we embrace the full participation of LGBTQIA people in all aspects of our church community.


Several members of our First Presbyterian community participate in “Not In Our Town,” an organization that has emerged out of a partnership between Bowling Green State University and the City of Bowling Green: “Not In Our Town Bowling Green was created to champion diversity and advance the mission of guiding and inspiring people and the community to work together to stop hate and build safe, inclusive environments for all.
