SERVICE OPPORTUNITIES

"For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me. Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me." 

Matthew 25:35-40

    The FSBC Lawrence church family is passionate about serving as a church body. We believe that serving one another and our community is an essential endeavor for a church family.

Annual Service Projects

Operation Christmas Child

Now - October 29

We are almost 4 weeks from the October 29th Operation Christmas Child Shoebox collection deadline. It is time to pack those shoeboxes as tight as you can to bring smiles and share the good news of Jesus Christ with children and their families. We would like to go beyond our 110-box goal for 2023. Keep watch of the goal tree, each tag represents a returned box. Please return filled boxes to the table in the foyer. You can contact Ida Johnson with any questions.

Trunk-Or-Treat

October 31

Our annual community-wide Trunk-or-Treat will be held from 5:30-6:30pm on October 31. Last year we had such a humongous turnout that we had to make two trips to the store during the event to buy more candy so that we would not run out. There are two ways to help with this event:
  • PROVIDE A TRUNK AND HANDOUT CANDY: Decorate your vehicle (not required) and bring candy to hand out. If you are available to hand out candy from your vehicle, please sign-up in the foyer, CLICK the button below, or in the new FSBC Lawrence app's Events section. Please set-up by 5:15pm in your selected stall on the eastern row of the parking lot, trunks toward the church building.
  • DONATE CANDY IN ADVANCE: If you cannot be there, please bring candy in advance to help replenish the stash for those giving out candy. Bring your donation now - October 26 at the sign-up table in the foyer or in the church office Mondays - Thursdays from 8am to 2:30pm.

Be Rich in Action

Mid-November

The annual Be Rich in Action campaign is an opportunity for our church family to bless our local schools and a food bank in our community. This year's Be Rich in Action day will be held on Sunday, November 19. On that day we will collect the following:
  • New coats for children (sizes S to XL)
  • New pairs of socks
  • Non-perishable food items
  • Special love offering for community agencies

Easter Egg Hunt

Near Easter

On a Saturday before Easter, we invite the children in the community to participate in an Easter Egg Hunt on our grounds. In the weeks prior, our church collects donated plastic eggs and individually-wrapped candies. That day, we have our three hunts organized by age-level followed by giving away special prizes.
