Serving Beyond Our Community
FPC’s partnership with Ekwendeni Church in Malawi, Africa started with FPC member and Malawi native Sandra Mkutumula when her mother, Judith, came to Lake Charles to visit her daughter. Judith and FPC members became fast friends, and we realized our churches could benefit mutually if we work together. Through Judith, our liaison, the two churches keep in touch and pray for one another. Furthermore, FPC supports the education of several Ekwendeni students with funds raised through FPC’s Ten Thousand Villages pop-up shop, aka, the Mission Mart.

Mission Mart Opportunity
We will continue our Mission Mart this year…. We are combining our ability to honor and remember loved ones at our mission giving.
Do you have friends you want to remember at birthdays but they really don’t need one more trinket on the shelf? Well, here’s your chance to make a big difference in the life of children in Lake Charles or around the world while honoring your friends and family!
You may make donations to the Mission Mart project in honor or in memory of loved ones.
We will recognize these loved ones in a special dedication bulletin just as we have done with our poinsettia donations in prior years.
As we plan for our gift-giving, please remember this opportunity to help others while remembering a friend or family member during this joyous time of the year.
