It’s in our DNA to care for society’s “least of these” and we are privileged to extend God’s grace through so many ministries because of the generous hearts at FPC-Holt. We pursue “hands-on missions” throughout the year with dedicated giving — while staying open to the “surprise needs” God places before us. Spur-of-the-moment calls for blankets or clothes are answered with overwhelming abundance…”random” arrivals of a grieving family at our door are met with comfort as we provide a funeral…a refugee family caught in the conflicts of politics receives food…
And we pray God continues to find us faithful.
ACT Uganda is a partnership between churches in mid-Michigan and the community of Muko Sub- County in Uganda. Each year, we send missionaries and resources to support over 100 orphans, teach skills to adults so they can earn a living, provide administration for a local high school — and most recently sent 110 Bibles for a religion class that didn’t have enough!
Advent House is a local shelter for the homeless — and the only one that remains open for meals on the week-ends. Our church has the privilege of fixing and serving a meal for the Advent House 6 times a year.
The Holt Community Food Bank provides weekly, monthly and holiday relief for individuals and families who might otherwise go hungry. FPC-Holt provides volunteers (and sorting space!) to make it happen!
One of our Deacons’ ministries is providing a Medical Lending Closet for the community. We take in donations of wheelchairs, walkers, tub benches and other types of equipment, and then make them available for people who might not be able to afford them otherwise.
