Church School Donations
We are trying something new for Church School in order to help support our wonderful Church School teachers who often use their own money to purchase supplies for their lessons. To continue offering creative programs and help keep our costs down, we are seeking free will donations of needed supplies. A list of suggested items follows. This is a way to show your support for this important ministry – our Children’s Christian Education. Please donate if and as you are able.

Year round opportunities:
Bridges Outreach: A Union County-based organization assisting people who are homeless or in transitional housing. FCC continues to provide bagged lunches once a month and other essentials to Bridges for distribution, but funding is needed to pay for transportation costs.
Doctors Without Borders: A Nobel Peace Prize winner, it is an international medical humanitarian organization delivering emergency aid to people affected by armed conflict, epidemics, natural and man-made disasters and exclusion from health care, in over 70 countries. Donations fund the medical professionals and other volunteers in thousands of aid missions each year.
Elizabeth Coalition to House the Homeless: A Union County-based organization assisting individuals and families who are homeless or near homeless, gain shelter, rental assistance, rent subsidies, transitional housing and permanent housing. Donations fund the staff and volunteers that provide case management, crisis intervention, an after-school program for children, and housing/life skills related education.
FCC's Food Closet: Located at here at FCC, the Food Closet provides food and supplies to the needy in our community. On average 5-6 individuals/families “walk-in” each week, many in dire circumstances relating to difficult medical or housing situations. Donations help fund the supply of food, toiletries and/or grocery gift cards.
Heifer International: An international organization providing animals such as chicks, ducks, goats and sheep to needy families. Donations will fund the purchase of animals that provide both food for the recipient families as well as a source of family income to raise their standard of living.
Caring Contact: Located in Westfield, Caring Contact is a caring and crisis hotline serving callers in need throughout New Jersey. The organization is devoted to promoting emotional wellbeing by providing opportunities for people to express themselves to compassionate listeners in a safe environment.
Roots and Wings: Roots and Wings provides those who age out of the foster care system with safe housing, educational support, counseling, and life skills in order to empower them toward self-sufficiency. Your donation will help support several homes in Union County for deserving young adults transitioning to independence.
