On July 13, 2019, Tom Cloud, certified CPR Instructor and brother of church member, Tamia Cloud Bible, presented a CPR class at First Presbyterian Huntsville to 15 church and community members. It addressed adult, child, and infant CPR, use of a defibrillator, and other emergency response situations such as choking. Many attending were high school students who had never been trained in CPR.

We seek to reflect the gospel of Jesus Christ through service and love.
