Every year, FPC Youth help share the Gospel with children around the globe with a simple gift - Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes.

This November, you can help FPC Youth fill shoeboxes for 350 children! 


Simply provide small items for shoeboxes that will be distributed internationally by Samaritan's Purse.

Items currently needed for this FPC Youth mission are

plastic shoebox-size containers with lids, toothbrushes, underwear, undershirts, gloves, crayons, notepads, bar soap, washcloths, combs, and brushes.


Sunday, November 17th is National Collection Sunday, and the final day

to turn in shoeboxes @ FPC.


Please stop by the FPC Family Life Center to drop off shoebox items Monday - Thursday

during regular office hours,

or on Sunday mornings.

Help share the meaning of Christmas this year – LOVE!



Stop by the FPC Angel Gift Tree

in the upper narthex to chose an angel (or two) for two families whose children attend Carthage Elementary. Then shop for the gift on the angel, wrap the gift and return it to the tree with the Angel taped on the outside of the gift,

by the second Sunday in Advent, December 8th.
