Please Contribute Food for Thanksgiving Food Baskets

Donations will be received on Sundays November 11 and 18.

We’re continuing our annual tradition of preparing Thanksgiving food baskets for 12 families from Parkway Elementary. The gift baskets contain a variety of items; suggested donations include frozen turkeys (10-12 lbs); canned green beans, corn, cranberry sauce, and sauerkraut; white potatoes and sweet potatoes (5 lb bags); pie mix and pie crust; stuffing (bags or boxes); and dinner rolls (bags). We also welcome monetary donations, as Ann Leyh will purchase any missing items, as well as milk, butter, and fresh fruit. Please bring donations to Worship on November 11 and November 18 – but please bring frozen turkeys only on November 18. Thank you for helping to make Thanksgiving special for our neighbors!


Alcoholics Anonymous

Meetings Year-Round

Alcoholics Anonymous has received FPC’s support for more than 40 years. The church provides meeting rooms and kitchen space for more than 20 weekly meetings as well as seasonal all-night meetings. FPC also offers space for weekly meetings of Al-Anon, a support group for friends and family members of problem drinkers.

Food Bank Donations

Monthly - 1st Sunday

The first Sunday of every month, FPC congregants are encouraged to bring food or hygiene items to donate to the Frederick Food Bank. Donations are down, and the number of Food Bank clients is rising—people are in need year-round. Please bring donations with you to worship.

Open Door

Wednesdays at 6:30pm, during the FCPS school year

For more than 30 years, FPC has partnered with our neighborhood school, Parkway Elementary, to provide a mentoring program for children in grades K-1. The Parkway community liaison selects children for the weekly program, which includes crafts and educational activities, story time, and a nutritious dinner. The longest-running program of its kind in Frederick County Public Schools, Open Door is an intergenerational celebration of learning and relationship in a happy, loving environment.
