Reach Out to the Neighborhood with FPC
Did you know that more than half the homes in FPC’s defined geographical neighborhood were built before 1949 and are more than 65 years old? While many are well maintained, there are families whose circumstances have prevented this care. Thus arises the opportunity to witness through word and deed, so that these families may experience more fully the love of God, one family at a time.
The Evangelism & Outreach Committee is seeking interested folks within our congregation who will be part of an outreach team that will expand our church’s ever-growing presence in our community and service to our neighbors.
The vision is to come alongside those who struggle, build relationships through careful listening, and together develop a course of action in which we work with our neighbors, offering practical assistance and strategic support and inviting collaboration with other agencies. At times, we might provide relief in crisis; mostly, we will work alongside the neighbor to help make home repairs, encourage, and affirm.
There will be opportunities for training, scripture study and application, and working through each step of this process together. If the idea of helping some of our church’s neighbors in need excites you, you need to be a part of this team.
