CRITICAL NEED! We have Angel tags for 24 children and 8 adults remaining on the trees. If you are able to take one or more of these this Sunday it will help us to reach as many people as possible.

Food Pantry: The food pantry is overwhelmed with requests for food. Non-perishables can be placed in the boxes provided in the narthex, or deliver them to the food pantry. Checks can be written to the church with a designation of food pantry. Call Bernice Bailey 770-786-3048 for further information.
Pastor’s Discretionary Fund: Each year we have last minute requests from families who are not covered by the Salvation Army but cannot afford Christmas gifts for their children. After investigating the request, church staff gives the family a gift certificate to one of the local stores. If you would like to contribute to this fund, make your check out to the church and designate Pastor’s Discretionary Fund. The Discretionary Fund is used throughout the year to help local folks with various needs.
Homeless Needs: With weather getting colder and daylight getting shorter, the needs of the homeless in our community are on the rise. As the church - the body of Christ - we are daily called upon to meet the needs of our homeless neighbors in many different ways, most of which require money. If you would like to contribute to our fund that is being used to directly help those who are without housing, please make your checks payable to FPC and designate "Homeless" on the memo line.
