Mission and Outreach

FPC loves and serves its neighbors!  We do this in many ways; we invite others to join in; and we encourage others to do the same.

Here are a few of the things we do in the name of Christ.  You’re invited!

 

Deacons

Our commissioned deacons are active in the community.  Perhaps their biggest ministry is leading FPC in service with our adoptive school, Ada High School.  “Adopt a School” is a newer program of Ada City Schools.  At Ada High we provide a “Room for Students” (clothing, non-perishable food, school supplies, laundry), a Monday snack break, and we pray the school prayer requests.  We also support the annual Beautification Day.

 

Meals on Wheels

Every couple months we have a week of delivery duty, and FPC sends a team to serve.  Meals on Wheels is a wonderful program hosted at Mercy Hospital and is absolutely vital in the community.  Contact Kurt Jackson for more information.

 

Abba’s Tables

We serve the meal every first Thursday at Abba’s Tables.  Contact Cheryl Weems for more information.

 

Compassion Outreach

Monthly–typically the second Tuesday of the month–FPC serves the meal at Compassion Outreach.  Contact Kurt Jackson or Bob Neman for more information.

 

Ada Homeless Services

FPC supports Ada Homeless Services.  It is one of the service organizations featured in this year’s Alternative Gift Market.

 

Mama T’s Bread and Blessings

FPC supports Mama T’s Bread and Blessings.  It is one of the service organizations featured in this year’s Alternative Gift Market.

 

Alternative Gift Market

It’s a yearly tradition at FPC!  This year it will be held Sunday, November 12th, following the worship service.

 

Urgent Community Needs Ministry

Due to generous congregational donors, FPC is able to provide some relief to families urgently in need in the community–especially homes where there are children or elderly.  Community members contact us by phone, and come to the church office during office hours.  Cash is not given to persons.  But with appropriate identification and documentation we can sometimes help with a water or electrical shutoff, etc.
