Through financial gifts and hands-on labor, we support a number of community directed projects to improve the lives of city and county residents.
Back to School Supplies
YATES PARK PROJECT – Betty Elder oversees this wonderful and necessary project annually. FPC Henderson always participates in this vital program. We help gather required school supplies for the whole county community. Betty Elder and Anne McCrady are the two head angels for this project. It is indeed a great way to help our school children – now that is a mission and outreach project rolled into one.
During the month of August, there are two back to school boxes in our church narthex where you can place your gathered/donated supplies. These boxes will be out until the deadline date and then our team will gather all the supplies and gratefully deliver them to the project coordinators.
Henderson Interchurch Ministry (HIM)
FPC Henderson is one of the founders of the Henderson Interchurch Ministry. We continue to emphatically support this operation and its mission to help members of this loving community. Members of the congregation bring food items for HIM Food Pantry on a regular basis but not less than once a month. In addition, we also participate with the traditional holiday food baskets put together and delivered by HIM through this outreach project. Our members volunteer and have served on the HIM Board of Directors. We also support HIM financially.
Habitat for Humanity
Our congregation financially supports this program and volunteers participate in the labor of love to help build the houses.
Christian Women’s Job Corps
Volunteers from our congregation help in various aspects of the center for women in transition, including assisting with teaching English as second language. In addition to the volunteer aspect, we also help provide financial support to this worthy cause.
Members of our Outreach Team, members of our congregation and friends of our congregation volunteer on Fridays to drive and deliver Meals-on-Wheels within our community.
