graduated2012At First Presbyterian Church (FPC) of Sarasota, we nurture our college students while they are away from their faith family through care packages, postcards and fellowship events for them when they come home for visits.

For local college and university students, we partner with campus ministers, provide transportation via the FPC bus to students who want to worship with us, offer annual scholarships, participate in campus events such as orientation, interfaith dialogues and Baccalaureate service. We also try to bring our New Song contemporary worship to area campuses.
