FGC has a long history of supporting missionaries and missions organizations. Each month we profile a worthy organization or project and collect funds to help support them. One of our long-term partners is Teen Challenge. Every January their team comes down from New Brunswick to join us for a morning service. Our church begins collecting groceries and personal care items after Christmas and the guys take two vanloads of supplies back with them that day.

We have commissioned a short term missions team to the Dominican Republic, and helped support others on short term mission efforts. Some of the mission groups we support annually include Servant’s Heart Ministries, Bridges for Peace, Samaritan’s Purse, Ratanak International, Open Door Ministries, and Dr. George Kutty (Asia for Christ). We also respond to major global crisis efforts in the aftermath of things like tsunamis and earthquakes as they arise.

Annual Teen Challenge Food Drive

As part of our mission at FGC, we believe in reaching out to those who are hurting and in need.  One way we do that is through our missions partner,  Teen Challenge - a phenomenal ministry that reaches out to men & women struggling with addictions.  For several years now, we have held our annual food drive, as well as having FGC members participate in the SleepOut event, to raise money & supplies to help support them in their ministry.  

This year, due to the current restrictions, Teen Challenge is unable to host the SleepOut in person.  

As a church family, we want to get behind Teen Challenge and support them.  So with our Annual Food Drive, this year we’re exercising our faith and  “upping the ante”.  

For the entire month of January, we are collecting non-perishable food items, as well as gift cards and cash donations.  Items can be dropped off Monday through Friday, 9:00am - 12:30pm, or brought in on Sunday mornings and placed in the sanctuary.  

Our goal this year is to raise $10,000.00 in donations & supplies for this incredible organization!  We will be posting regular updates on our website and social media to let you know where we stand as donations come in.  

Also, we are challenging everyone to invite their friends to join us in this initiative! Share our Teen Challenge Facebook posts, invite family members & neighbours to donate and help us surpass our goal!

Together we can make a massive impact for Teen Challenge!
