Service & Outreach

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 our Snack and Supply Drive!

Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unityColossians 3:12-14

Join us in our goal of collecting 5,000 individual items in our annual Snack and Supply Drive.  This year, we are partnering with Food for Thought, our own FPC Weekday School, and Rivermont Area Emergency Food Pantry to collect much needed snacks, food items, and school & hygiene supplies! Will you help us?
