Matthew 22:36-40 (NRSV)

“Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest?”  He said to him, “‘you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’  This is the greatest and first commandment.  And a second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’  On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.”

We are called to be Christ’s reflection in and throughout our lives, locally, nationally, and globally.  The work of Christ in us and through us to the world fulfills either the greatest commandment “to love” or the Great Commission “to GO, make disciples” or both. This is why we do what we do! We strive to provide opportunities for every member of FPC (from preschool to the young at heart) to be actively engaged with and inspired by at least one mission experience and have a story to share and inspire others.

Join us in loving our Lynchburg neighbors through a canned fruit drive!

Thus you will know them by their fruits. Matthew 7:20

By contrast, the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Galatians 5:22

In the spirit of thankful hearts and thanksgiving, we are hosting a food drive throughout the month of November for the Rivermont Area Food Pantry.  Due to COVID-19 their food stock is in desperate need of nonperishable food items of any kind, BUT especially 15 oz. cans of fruit. We have a goal of collecting 450 canned goods! Will you help us?

How do I donate?

» Sunday mornings, 9:00 am to 12:00 pm in the front circle.  Look for the orange grocery cart!

» Purchase on Amazon ( and have items shipped to the church at 1215 VES Road, Lynchburg, VA 24503.  Please address the attention to "Orange Cart" so we can easily identify the boxes upon arrival.

If you have questions about this drive or the Rivermont Area Food Pantry, please contact Chad McCain.
