Missions & Outreach are a big part of our story. At Faith Community, we partner with missionaries and organizations that are meeting the needs of people in our city, country and all around the world. In addition to financial support, we also take trips to meet the practical needs of people across the globe from Mexico to Africa, to Brazil, Guatemala, and El Salvador. We also reach people in our own backyard by a variety of programs through Peace By Piece and the Marketplace Food Pantry.
Our Heart Behind Missions & Outreach
We love our community! From the monthly Marketplace Food Pantry grocery distribution to the variety of programs offered by Peace By Piece (including the Back to School Bash & Christmas Joy Gift Program), our goal is to show people they are valued and seen in the midst of everyday life and challenges.
We support several missionaries and organizations doing work right here in America. For example, Rural Compassion – a branch of Convoy of Hope – equips church leaders in rural areas to strengthen and enrich their communities.
The needs around the globe are great. From poverty to education to safety for women and girls, we partner with missionaries and organizations working in communities to help people facing issues like these. We also take several trips each year to provide first-hand experiences serving people in cultures different than our own. To register for a 2020 trip, click here.
In 2018, we set out to give away $100,000 to local and international organizations serving women and children through an initiative called Giving Hope. We partnered with organizations supporting women in domestic violence situations and those struggling with addiction, as well as those funding education, pregnancy resources, and sex trafficking rescue work. After surpassing that goal in early 2019, Giving Hope has become an ongoing effort to continue this work!
