Grant for Missions
The Missions Committee is pleased to announce that FPC received an Outreach Grant from Presbytery for $2,000, in order to help support the purchase of food items for the "FPC Homeless Project" meals that FPC provides. Our volunteers purchase, cook, and serve meals (currently brown-bag) for The Salvation Army soup kitchen lunches, for the Conroe House of Prayer homeless breakfasts, and for our overnight Family Promise guest families. We normally serve almost 8,000 meals annually and we continue to serve about 4,000 meals despite Covid limitations.
We are "doubly-blessed"... you'll recall that, a few weeks ago, we learned that we had received a Presbytery Social Justice grant to support our work with Freedom Place and the victims of sex trafficking. That was thanks again to Presbytery.
As you may see, your Missions Ministry team has been busy through these trying times and will continue to be so. With the help of people like Penny Bell and Sally De Stefano on our grant team, and with generous others like yourselves, FPC’s congregation will help with funding upcoming projects later in the year as well. We plan to keep our Missions work churning to provide for those in need, so please support us when you can. Thanks for believing in what we do.
