Children of all ages are able to develop hearts of compassion for others. As they learn about the needs of others and reach out to share the love of Jesus, their hearts grow bigger and they learn to live out their faith in relevant, meaningful ways. Children at FCPC participate in service by reaching out to all kinds of people in all kinds of situations.
Cup of Water
Cup of Water
is the name of one of the workshops our K-4th graders visit each month during our Springs of Living Water
rotation class. Mission is the focus of this workshop. Here children will learn to share the “Good News” of the Gospel (just like a refreshing cup of cold water) through three centers focusing on (1) congregational care (2) local, national and world agencies who received “Love Gifts” through our offerings and (3) our four “World Vision” adopted children.
Children's Giving Well
Parents are encouraged to help children make the connection between the missions they are learning about in the Cup of Water
class and the money it takes to make those missions possible. One way to do this is by donating change to our Children's Giving Well
which is located in the H2O worship space. 100% of the offerings in the well go to our Children's Mission Projects.
World Vision Children
One of the missions our Giving Well
offering supports is Child Sponsorship through World Vision. The Giving Well
money sponsors four children in Nicaragua, India, Tanzania and Chili. Through our sponsorship these children have access to clean water, nutritious food, health care, education and more. You can learn more about World Vision and the work they do toward "building a better world for children" by visiting their website
Christmas, Easter, and No-Occasion Gifts for Seniors
Not only is it important for children to learn how to use their money to serve others, it is also important for them to learn to use their special talents and abilities to do good works in the world. Because of this, children make crafts during the Cup of Water
class, the How Great Thou Art
class, and during Creation Station.
These endearing projects are given to shut-ins, people in the hospital, and residents in long term care facilities.
