Mission Ministry Focus on Mission Giving & Support

As members of the Mission Ministry, we have a responsibility to be good stewards of both the resources given and designated by the church for mission, and those funds donated for 'local mission' through the various special envelope collections during the year.

As mentioned back in May, our process requires each mission partner to submit an annual 'Request for Support' application to help us better understand their needs, current strategic initiatives and to identify any specific challenges or emergencies they are facing. We are glad to say, our initial review of the received applications has taken place and donations have already been approved for many of our partners. These include support of our own FCC sponsored H.O.M.E. Mission Trip where funds will be used specifically for the purchase of building materials as the team prepares this year for the re-construction of Sister Marie's house following severe fire-damage. Going forward, the Mission team will continue to review the applications made and allocate additional funding in response. We will also look to identify opportunities for 'hands-on' mission we can bring forward to the congregation.

If you would like to understand more about our allocation of funding or learn in more detail about any of our mission partners, please feel free to contact a member of your Mission Ministry: Lisa Cousins, Randy Glendinning, Wendy O'Sullivan and Joanne Patrick (Faith Ferry - we will miss you, thank you for your dedication to mission!).

Finally, please join us in welcoming Becky Burdumy, Eric Olsen, Roger Restaino and Fran Sulzer to the Mission Ministry. We are delighted to have you on board!
