summertime at first cumberland

First Cumberland's campus comes alive with the sounds of summer once the weather warms up!  The Cumberland Youth Foundation was founded in 1958 here at First Cumberland to serve the area's children.  Current ministries under the CYF include The Dayplayers Summer Camp, The Cumberland Currents Swim Team and management of our Olympic sized swimming pool.... all located on the campus of First Cumberland Presbyterian just steps from the church itself.  We invite you to come find your spot in the sun at First Cumberland this summer...  we'll save a seat for you!
