The Diner at the Potter's Wheel
One of First Pres’ local partners-in-mission is The Potter’s Wheel. Housed in the former Cumberland Presbyterian Church building at the corner of Jefferson and South Governor in Evansville, The Potter’s Wheel has developed into a very effective ministry in the Tri-State area.
The Potter’s Wheel is best known to First Pres’ members and friends as the home of “The Diner.” On the fourth Saturday of each month, a large team of volunteer cooks, servers, dishwashers, and floor-moppers takes over the kitchen of The Potter’s Wheel to prepare, serve, and clean up a delicious hot breakfast. Several hundred meals are served each month, with many of those meals being served to children. Without “The Diner,” it is possible that the guests would not have a hot meal for the entire weekend.
