FCC works with Our House and Wiley House, Fulton's two shelters to give people a place to stay and help break the cycle of homelessness. We provide over 3000 meals a year for residents of Wiley house by cooking and grocery shopping for 2 weekends each month. This past year we collected a truck load of paper products and laundry pods for their clients. Each quarter we also offer a monetary donation.
FCC was instrumental in establishing the Salvation Army Service Unit of Callaway County. Determining that the greatest need in the community is meeting utility costs for many local households, the Service Unit committee organized the first Red Kettle Campaign with funds designated for utilities. First Christian Church provides leadership and is responsible for organizing and coordinating the annual Campaign.
The Super Sam Foundation was founded to fund the major research gap in pediatric cancer. Housed in our church and founded by church members, FCC has dedicated itself to helping comfort those kids with cancer, supporting their families, and helping raise awareness and funds to find a cure for fighting childhood cancer.
Members of FCC work with Open Table Callaway to provide nourishing meals and a place for fellowship to people in Fulton. This ministry is still in it's infancy, but we are looking forward to it developing and loving more of our neighbors in Fulton and Callaway county!
FCC continues to work with SERVE INC. in a variety of ways throughout the year. Whether it is providing ongoing funding, collecting food for their pantry, adopting families at Christmas time, gathering school supplies, we try and help make an impact in our community!
This ministry is one of sewing “Pillowcase Smiles” for young people with long hospital stays. Even if you are a beginner in sewing, you can create “Pillowcase Smiles” for children in Missouri who are dealing with cancer or other life-changing illness.
