Outreach and Social

The Outreach and Social Ministry Team provides opportunities for the FELC community to answer the call to love our neighbors as ourselves, to care for the sick, poor and hungry, and promote social justice. 

We lift up local, national and global concerns and encourage and empower the FELC community to use gifts of time, talent and treasures to address these concerns as God's hands at work in this world.  In living their call, members will reflect as well as experience the transforming power of Christ's loving presence and the fullness of life that God intended for all. 

Prayers For Community Care

Each week in worship we lift up an organization in our area that works to provide vital services in our community. We are partners with many of these groups that show the light of God to those in need. Consider praying and possibly volunteering for the groups we mention. Click here to view the Volunteer Connections Booklet which lists the organizations with descriptions and contact information.
