Announcements and Events
This Week at FBCM
Lenten Small Groups – A few of the Lenten small groups are still happening virtually and they are a wonderful way to grow relationships, build community, and nurture and encourage spirituality. It is not too late to participate. If you are interested in participating, please contact Eufemio Pagan at email@example.com.
FOOD PANTRY - Thank you for all your contributions to the Food Pantry; for both monetary & food items. During the COVID-19 Pandemic the Food Pantry remains open on Tuesdays (11:00 to 1:00, and 5:30 to 7:00) & Thursdays (11:00 to 1:00). Those in need will
be assisted one at a time outside the church. Thank you to all of those who have donated food or monetary gifts during this difficult time.
Connection Calling Initiative - Thank you to all who have responded so far with your willingness to participate in keeping people contacted and connected. Lists of callers based on comfort levels are being compiled and will be disseminated as soon as possible. It's not too late to sign up to call people.
Connection Blog - Don't forget to keep connected spiritually during this time of social distancing via our Connection Blog, updated daily (Mon-Friday) and authored by one of our ministerial staff.
Giving - As we adjust to a new way of being church, our giving methods must also adjust. We are actively working on getting a PayPal or other virtual giving button on our website, but until then, you may mail your donations to the church (19 West Main St., Moorestown, NJ 08057) or utilize your bank's online Bill Pay option. We are grateful that each of you continues to sow into the ministry, as our ministry is expanding daily. This truly is an opportunity to widen our message of God's radical inclusion and love.
