Christmas Offering – 2019
We are collecting a Special Christmas Offering to support two of our missionary families. Over the last few decades, our Christmas and Easter offerings have helped fund, by quick estimation, about $500,000 of projects like these!
- Jim and Laurie Barnes – Missionaries in Prague, Czech Republic – Laurie is a local FCC product who, along with her husband, has spent over 20 years of faithful ministry in downtown Prague, where they are undergoing a massive $250,000 expansion to add more space for their library, numerous education, Bible study, and childrens’ programs, and a coffee shop space that will help them continue to reach into the community! It’s a huge undertaking and they could use our help. Keep up with them at czechbarnes.weebly.com.
- Steve and Kay Carpenter – Missionaries in Mexico City, Mexico – Since 1995 the Carpenters, who are East TN natives, have faithfully served in leadership development, church planting, theological training, and outreach to the community. They are currently in need of help in funding a couple projects for the community outreach center their church developed: roofing/upgrades to playground equipment and more office/educational space. These are exactly the kind of ongoing community outreaches the Carpenters have been leading for years!
