We Are Here For Good!
CONTACT: Rev. Dr. John Regan email@example.com 405.341.3544 EXT 111
First Christian, you are doing GOOD things for our neighbors every single day during this pandemic! It feels like every week new opportunities arise for us to share with those in need as life as we know it has unraveled.
Here is how you can help us stitch our community together:
You can SERVE – (with social distancing protocols in place) Individuals can work solo, or families can serve together. If you would like to volunteer, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will contact you to arrange a serving time and project that fits your schedule.
1) Provide At-Home School Supplies!
We are sharing the gift of art! With your donations of items like crayons, markers, watercolors, and other craft supplies, we will fill “creativity care-packages” and give them to the students in greatest need at our partner school, Ida Freeman Elementary. You can help brighten a child’s day through the gift of art and creativity! Bring NEW craft supplies to our donation drive-thru on Friday, May 8, from 4:00 to 6:00PM, or Saturday, May 9, 10:00 AM to NOON. See the full wish list and details online at fccedmond.org/serve. Or share a financial gift at fccedmond.org/giveonline - choose “Ida Freeman Elementary,” and we’ll do the shopping for you!
2) Breakfast on Boulevard is still serving!
FCC is offering breakfast and lunch sacks from 6:30 am to 7:15 am Monday through Friday, to anyone in need. Some of the ways you can help at BOB: make & prep sandwich bags; make sandwiches; bake & bag cookies; pickup bread; cut scriptures strips; and, of course, you can serve at BOB and hand out the bags! Want to help? Send an email to email@example.com - volunteers will be contacted to assign a time and a task. To make your gift, go to fccedmond.org/giveonline - choose your amount and select “Breakfast on Boulevard.”
3) We are Supporting Healthcare Workers!
To show our appreciation to those on the frontlines, we are partnering with Bricktown Brewery to serve a delicious meal for all Emergency Room and ICU staff at Mercy Hospital. The simple gift of food shared can bless lives, alleviate stress, and uplift spirits! Want to help? Make a gift at fccedmond.org/giveonline - choose your amount and select “Food for Healthcare Workers.”
You can GIVE – Your financial gifts to the church allow us to remain woven together as a community. Through your continued generosity, we’ve been able to serve our community and pivot to online worship, learning, and connection. As unemployment rises, we know there will be short-term and long-term financial needs in our community. If you can share an extra gift to help us stitch our community together, you may do so at fccedmond.org/giveonline or mail a check to FCC, PO Box 3548, Edmond, OK 73083.
And like the sign created by Abby and Kate Kerr for our donation drive-thru says “Covid-19 Can’t Stop This Church!” I’m so thankful to be part of a compassionate faith community, eager to share hope with each other and with our neighbors.
