LANSING, Ill. (June 25, 2019) – Love for Lansing volunteers Red Murrin and Trustee Jerry Zeldenrust take advantage of a sunny Tuesday afternoon to work on rebuilding a Lansing resident’s side porch. Love for Lansing is a ministry of First Church PCA that helps Lansing residents with yard clean-up and other projects.

First Church is also networking with other Lansing churches to meet a variety of needs throughout the community, including helping at the Patti Leach Youth Center, teaching English as a Second Language, and more.

People who are interested in volunteering with Love for Lansing on future projects are invited to contact Jerry Zeldenrust via email or First Church PCA via phone:

First Church PCA is located at 3134 Ridge Road in Lansing.
