For over 10 years, our congregation has been supporting missionary Kristin Hamner in the Dominican Republic. This includes sending adults on short-term mission trips to assist in building projects, basic medical care, clean water systems and meeting other needs.
Kristin Hamner is a daughter of the congregation, who is a Presbyterian Minister Mission Worker in the Dominican Republic. The church helps to support her work with the Foundation for Peace. Kristin is involved in a wide variety of ministry work in the Dominican Republic. Through the Foundation for Peace she helps to organize the work of short-term mission groups who come to the region to do specific ministries. Through the years, mission teams from First Presbyterian Church have gone to work with Kristin in the Dominican Republic.
