We are called to share the love of Christ as members of the Delaware community, and support our manly local non-profit agencies.

 

Carry-Out & Fourth Thursday Meals

As of October 1st, we have served 1,552 hot and nutritious meals to members of our congregation, friends of the church, and members of our community. We continue to reach out and provide meals to some of the most vulnerable members in our community. In 2020, COVID-19 changed the way we provide to the community by introducing FPC Carry-Out meals to replace our in-person Fourth Thursday meals during the pandemic.  The Carry-Out Meals are provided three times a month and will reach 2,742 meals given by the end of this year!  In addition to our curbside pickup, we deliver to White Sands, Londontown Apartments and 25 meals every month to Family Promise.

“Fourth Thursday Meal” started in August 2007 and is continuing into its 14th year as a strong mission program.  This program provides a free meal to the Delaware Community on the fourth Thursday of each month January through October from 6:00 to 7:00 as well as on Christmas Day.  The deacons also deliver meals to our members who are home bound and/or desire a home cooked meal.

Carry-Out and Fourth Thursday menus are posted on our FPC Facebook Page and on our Home page under News & Events.

 

Pacer Pantry

We regularly collect taxable and non-taxable items for the local food pantry. The first Sunday of every month is designated as Pacer Pantry Sunday.

 

Habitat for Humanity & ReStore

Working with other local churches, we support the local building projects by Habitat for Humanity. On august 3, 2016, FPC donated a rain barrel to Becky’s home and is committed to donating a rain barrel to future homes.
