Jesus issued his disciples what’s known as the Great Commission. It is world-changing. We are passionate about showing the world who Jesus is. Whether it is in our community around the world, we can tangibly express God’s love and serve the world, offering him all that we are and all that we have.
At FPC Ambler, we are active in mission and outreach. We support many mission partners on across the world, and each year hundreds of people are sent beyond the church walls to serve our local, national and global mission partners and to serve those in need–in everything from cooking, cleaning, organizing, clearing, building, playing games, teaching a Bible lesson, serving in a soup kitchen, donating canned goods, and more.
Throughout the year, we have many mission opportunities available for you to participate
In developing countries, up to 80% of all illnesses are linked to poor water and sanitation conditions. Haiti is no different. Therefore, FPC Ambler is working in partnership with two rural communities in Haiti to improve health outcomes and provide water to hundreds of families. Our church supports the planning, installation, and sustainability of two water filtration systems that provide clean water and provides employment. Several times each year we visit Haiti to support this ministry and connect with our brothers and sisters in Christ. For more information, contact the church office.
FPC Ambler is a church deeply rooted in the Ambler community. What better way to root yourself in the community than serving? Every fall the church gathers together and worships the Lord through serving various organizations in the surrounding community. In the past, we’ve done everything from packing 10,000 meals for children in need, packed over 200 boxes for Operation Christmas Child, repair walls at West Kensington Ministry, to helping clean up around the community and in a local school.
We work with a coalition of 14 churches (called the NECH) to provide a soup kitchen every Saturday morning in Philadelphia. You can be part of this effort by helping to prepare the meal Friday night at our church, serving the meal in Frankford on Saturday morning, or both. Contact Mark and Barb Yantek ([email protected]).
Clothing items are also needed: sweatshirts, coats, small blankets, socks and sneakers (new or clean/used in good condition). Items can be left in the container marked SOUP KITCHEN CLOTHING DONATIONS, by the Fellowship Hall coat racks.
