A week before MISD started back to school First Christian delivered 500 backpacks filled with school supplies. We divided out the backpacks among 6 Elementary Schools. Today we received a “thank you” note from one of those schools. 20 words made this outreach project worth it. “allowing our students to have what they need the 1st day of school is already setting them up for success”.
Well done could & faithful servants of FCC!

We experienced a steady rainfall for most of the morning. However, it did not stop our Food Pantry volunteers from standing out in the rain to hand out boxes of food to those in need. In pouring down rain they served 63 families which equaled 229 people.
Truly the hands & feet of Christ.

Good Morning!
The doors are open & lights are on! It’s raining, the streets are overflowing with water but that’s not stopping us from having church!
Hope to see you at 10am for Sunday School & 11am for worship as we become more acquainted with Thomas one of the 12 who was so much more than a doubter.
Be safe!
