Meet Human Needs

Water Well Hendon Memorial Water Wells: In 2012, Our Pastor Larry Hendon energized the children, youth and adults of FPC by organizing a fundraiser to support faith-based water well missions in Asia. Pastor Larry recognized that 1 in 8 people lack safe drinking water, yet discovered that cost-effective solutions are available. This Lenten season, we will continue the tradition started by Pastor Larry to collect funds in Sunday School, LOGOS, and the offertory to put toward building Jesus Water Wells. You may designate your contribution to the “Hendon Memorial Water Well Fund.” Thank you for your support.

 

Gainesville Community Ministry are at a critical need of food and financial resources.  At this time, they are in desperate need of all types of nonperishable foods.  Please check the Publix Buy One Get One special this week.  When shopping the BOGO at Publix, you can use 2 coupons even though you are only paying for one item.  Thank you to all who have helped to Meet Human Needs.  Please remember that the need is great year round.

 

 

 

Blessings,
Dr. Robert Shettler, Pastor
