Metrocrest Social Services
Various men's, women's and Sunday School groups of First Christian Church United participates in service projects for the church and the communities we reside, and volunteers every other month at the Metrocrest Social Services Food Pantry. Members also donate to our "Good Food for Families" food drive every third Sunday, where members bring donations of canned food, cleaning supplies, and toiletries to church that are taken to the Metrocrest Food Pantry on a monthly basis to help those in need.
 
For over twenty five years, members and friends of First Christian Church including the Women's Pot Pourri, Men's Agape and participants from our Urban Refuge Contemporary Worship teams volunteers and financially supports many of the Metrocrest Social Services programs throughout the year including:  
  ~ The
Sack Summer Hunger program over the Summer Months
  ~ The Annual Shoes for School Children - this past year by donating over $1300 towards the Shoes program
  ~ Donating and organizing school supplies during the Annual School Supplies Drive in the Fall
  ~ Donating Food and volunteering at the Holiday Store during the Thanksgiving and Christmas Holidays

We are thankful for the many blessings that we have and grateful for your support of this and other Metrocrest programs throughout the year.
