Jesus said, “Whatsoever you do unto the least of these, you do unto me.” So we’re convinced that acts of mercy, of justice, of kindness are essential, not extra credit. FYI, we focus outreach efforts less on speaking the good news, and more on being good news to neighbors-in-need. Here’s how, though we’re always open to more…
FCC tithes 10% of our offerings to denominational and regional church mission activities. We give 1% to local mission programs. And that’s just a taste… In all, in 2021-22, FCC gave about 25% of our revenue away to bless others’ lives and brighten God’s world. Here’s how:
Every month, we provide groceries for around 100 (up to 120) neighbors with demonstrated need for assistance. On the 3rd Tuesday, a team of volunteers shops for the food at the Montgomery Area Food Bank, then packs the bags. The following morning, clients arrive around 11:00am and volunteers help with registration and distribution. We’re always looking for more donations and assistance!
Every year, LGBTQ advocates around the nation- and in Montgomery- celebrate Pride. Local festivities include a parade and community festival, at which FCC secures a booth annually. We’re proud to stand with LGBTQ members and neighbors to celebrate God’s diversity in Creation, and greatest gift- Love.
In 2015, faithful souls across the state, advocates for justice, began organizing efforts to “Honor God, Build Community, and Dismantle Systemic Racism.” Groups of churches and concerned individuals established four hubs, and one is in Montgomery. FCC offers meeting space, money and effort to build this important work.
