I’m so glad you’re here! It’s my joy and privilege to serve as the Mission and Outreach Director at FPC. A few years ago I discovered this prayer and it’s become a motto for us,
"We are happy to be your children, Oh Lord; make us happier still to extend the table.”
We hope to help all of Christ’s followers here at FPC find ways to engage in extending the invitation to God’s great banquet table. Some of those we hope to invite will be close friends, family members, coworkers or neighbors. Others will not be invited unless we go out of our way - risk crossing social, cultural, language and maybe even geographical barriers to extend Christ’s invitation. We want to help all God’s blessed followers find ways to live into God’s desire that we also be a blessing.
Here at FPC, we have both a Mission Ministry Team and an Outreach Ministry Team helping to lead and encourage our efforts at extending the table.
- Care personally for mission partners and seek to provide financial support through the church budget process
- Help all ages of our congregation grow in what they know about missions in general & our missionaries specifically
- Encourage & promote personal involvement in mission experiences, local or global, by all ages of our congregation
There's room for you at the Mission Ministry Team Table! We currently meet the 4th Tuesday of most months at 7 pm off campus in various team member's homes.
There's room for you at the Outreach Ministry Team Table! We currently meet mid-day during the week, with a less regular schedule.
Please contact Terry Jaurena if you're interested in participation on either of these ministry teams or their projects.
