Our annual Chili Fest on Halloween night has become a tradition for many in the community. Three varieties of chili are offered, with as many refills as you like! It is a wonderful evening of fun and fellowship with our church family and members of the community before the annual Halloween Parade in Downtown Alton.
First Presbyterian offers a coffee hour fellowship each Sunday following worship. We also share fellowship meals in October on World Communion Sunday, during Advent and Lent which are open to the community by calling the church in advance, and at various other times throughout the year. The congregation invites the Greater Alton community to be our guests at a Community Holiday Meal fellowship during the week of Christmas (see also Mission & Outreach).
Fellowship is funded by free will donations by the congregation and members of the community.
