As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace.  1 Peter 4:10

Here are some opportunities for you to collaborate with our Outreach partners in strengthening our local community!  To find out more about any of the listed outreach programs and how you can help, please contact the church office.

 

Interfaith Dinner Network (IDN)  the 4th Tuesday of each month.

If you love cooking, or seeing the happy faces of those receiving food, you will enjoy volunteering with the Interfaith Dinner Network at Hope House!  Our church feeds the hungry in our area every 4th Tuesday of the month.  Come prep, serve, and clean up along with fellow church members and spread some much needed cheer!  Contact the church office for more information and to sign up.

  

Deacon-Led Teams.  Our deacons could use your help! 

 

Meals Team – Are you able to whip up a casserole in short notice? You’d be a great fit for the Meals Team, which brings homemade meals to members who need them.

Neighbor-2-Neighbor Team – Are you handy with the toolbox?  Join the Neighbor-2-Neighbor Team and respond to fellow members’ request for small home repairs.

The Transportation Team  – Calling all drivers!  Some FPC folks need a ride to appointments.  When you take them, you also provide company during a tough time.

Prayer Team – Are you passionate about interceding for other, and discreet with personal details?  Join fellow members of the Prayer Team in bringing our petitions to God.

If any of this calls you, please contact the church office to sign up and get more information!

One-off opportunities.

One-off opportunities are available all year-round.  Look out for them in the bulletin, e-blast and announcements during service.  Sign up for the weekly e-blast by calling the church office.
