Missions at FCC
Missions of Charity and Hope
Mission work at FCC involves sharing our time, talent and treasure both as individuals and as members of the church (learn more about Volunteering). Church wide mission activities are coordinated by the Missions Board.
Each month, the Missions Board offers a “mission moment” during worship to showcase one of the many benevolent organizations they support. They also set up a monthly volunteer event for members as an opportunity to experience the charitable work of different nonprofits.
Throughout the year, the board collects donations to aid the charitable work of groups the church has historically supported such as the MAM Back to School and the Thanksgiving drive of the East Spring Branch Food Pantry. They also collect food for the hungry on Communion Sundays and deliver unsold produce from our farmer’s market to a local food pantry.
“Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.” Matthew 25:40
Other ongoing efforts include a monthly soup kitchen and a quarterly blood drive. Occasionally, the board will sponsor a refugee family – most recently a family from Afghanistan.
The inspiration for the activities of the mission board comes from the book of Mathew which encourages everyone to feed the hungry, tend the sick, offer hospitality to the stranger, and clothe the naked.
