In the Community

We believe the church should express the heart of God to the local community by building relationships that connect people with Christ and His community, the church. Through partnerships with local organizations and organic initiatives, we serve together to connect with and meet the needs of our community.

 

Driven

DRIVEN is about being driven to find children in our community who are without a church home and building relationships with them that lead to a greater understanding of God’s love for them and a connection to FCF.

Community Teams serve together in the neighborhood where kids live to have fun while helping with homework and sharing a meal together. The Church Team picks kids up and brings them to FCF for church on Sunday, as well as mid-week youth group activities.

ALAN P. LINTON JR.
EMERGENCY SHELTER

The Alan P. Linton, Jr. Emergency Shelter provides a warm, clean place where the homeless of Frederick can find shelter year-round. Volunteers work together to help with check-in and services, while sharing meals and connecting with residents.

FCF also provides MEALS WITH A MISSION. Each week volunteers sign up to bring part of a meal on Tuesday evenings. A small group of volunteers prepare takeout boxes by placing 2 entrees, 2 vegetables and a dessert into each box. The boxes are taken to several locations in Frederick to provide a warm hearty meal to about 80 homeless families. Some volunteers make an entrée, others sign up to bring water, fruit, and granola bars. Why do we also provide fruit and granola bars? This is an easy snack that fits in a pocket that provides nutrition throughout the day.

Frederick Rescue Mission

The Frederick Rescue Mission is a Christ-centered ministry providing residential recovery programs to the homeless or chemically addicted, food to the hungry, clothing and furniture to the needy, and connection within our community through relationships. Volunteers work together here to serve lunch, participate in repair and maintenance projects, and provide food, hygiene, and clothing items.
