Support the FPC Youth Mission Trip!

Our youth will travel to Asheville, NC, July 30th through August 5th

The FPC Youth Group will spend a week this summer supporting the mission of the Veterans Restoration Quarters (VRQ), a comprehensive residential program for veterans of the US armed services who are homeless. In years past, our youth have built storage sheds at VRQ, worked in the community garden, painted curbs, helped in the kitchen, and served lunch.

The youth group is collecting practical donations for VRQ residents: men’s jeans (any size, new or gently used), men’s tennis shoes (any size, new or gently used), and triple-edged razors. Please help! Donations can be left in the labeled bin in Heritage Hall or in the FPC office.

We can also support our youth through financial contributions and by donating snacks for their trip. They’ll be hungry! Favorites include Gatorade, juice boxes, breakfast cereals, chips, and cookies. And, of course – please support our team by praying for them and the people they’ll serve.

Alcoholics Anonymous

Meetings Year-Round

Alcoholics Anonymous has received FPC’s support for more than 25 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 25 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.

FPC Sunday School

2016-17 School Year

The new Sunday School year kicks off on Sunday, September 11th, and continues through mid-June. Classes for children, teens, and adults meet at 9:30am on Sundays (one hour before Worship). All are welcome.
