Going "into All the World"
“The spirit of Christ is the spirit of missions.
The nearer we get to Him, the more intensely missionary we become.”
― Henry Martyn
Each year we take some time to focus on missions;
- The missions we support here in the Fairfield area
- The missions we support in the United States
- The missions we support around the world
- And the mission of our church, to be a place where people can encounter Christ, grow in faith and serve our communities
We call that month “Faith Promise”. We ask our congregation to, in faith that God will supply, promise a special gift, beyond their normal tithe, to help support the mission work that FCC does around the world, in the U.S., and here at home in Fairfield.
Yes, we talk about sending money and making a Faith Promise, but it is so much more than that. With our busy lives, we sometimes need to remember that it doesn’t take great acts of heroism to spread the Gospel and the love of Christ. Sometimes it simply takes a smile or a helping hand. So, in addition to sending over $350,000.00 a year to support the missions listed below, we have also:
packaged over 40,000 meals to send to Haiti with Lifeline Christian Mission
gone “reverse” trick or treating and take gifts to our shut-ins and people in the hospital and nursing home
held a huge trunk-or-treat for our community
thrown a yearly party for special needs adults in the area
hosted the annual Great Giveaway: A huge garage sale where everything is free
planned an annual family day at a local park with food, inflatables, music and games
