Basketball – As a part of the Greer Christian Basketball Association, First Presbyterian Church honors God through sportsmanship, fellowship and play. With teams ranging from K4 to adults there are lots of opportunities for you to get involved. Games are held at various churches in the Greer area and begin in the late fall. For more information on playing basketball contact Susan Tompkins.
Book Club – The book club meets around the fireplace in Kirk Hall the first Tuesday of each month from September through May and/or June. Members, both from our church and from our community, vote on a selection of fiction and non-fiction to read and discuss in an informal way. They regularly read at least one local or regional author who comes in to meet with them. They have traveled as a group to Lake Lure, Georgetown and even New Orleans! Everyone is welcome and a schedule of the 2015-2016 readings will give you an idea of their varied interests. Contact Harriett Williams,Williams@mailbox.sc.edu for more information.

Wonderful Wednesday – Most Wednesday nights during the school year offer the church family the opportunity to enjoy relaxed fellowship, food, fun and study together. Children have music and classes; youth have a time of study and mid-week connections with each other; adults have a study or two to choose from, as well as mens’ and womens’ group gatherings.
This Fall, Wonderful Wednesday will be held from September 16th through October 21st. Meals are $3 for preschool, and $5 for 1st grade and up. The family cap is $20. If you are interested in attending Wonderful Wednesday call or email Pam in the church office by 4:30 on Monday (877-3612) to make a reservation.
Prayer Shawl Ministry – Every Tuesday afternoon at 2 p.m., a dedicated group of people meets in the Session Room to knit all types of beautiful items for the Prayer Shawl Ministry. Not only do they knit shawls, but hats, mittens, sweaters and all sorts of other things as well. God’s glory can be found in the laughter that comes from the room during their time, but more importantly, the items that they knit are delivered to people who are in need of warmth, which comes from a hand-knitted woolen knitted with love.
Fellowship Groups – Spending time with one another is just one way that we can see God working in our lives. There are several Fellowship Groups that meet monthly to laugh, play and break bread together. These groups rotate their meeting places and times, and are often in the homes of one of the particular group’s members.
