The ministries of FCC Leavenworth are the source of the church’s programs. The members of each ministry gather about once each month to plan for the programs and events under their direction.
These people set the goals, plan the calendar and recruit other members of the congregation to help execute their plans. Almost every program, worship service, dinner or other event is planned and directed by the members of the ministries. The ministries are the true source of all the work done by our church.
Membership on a ministry is open to all those who have an interest in that ministry.
The standing committees at FCC serve various functions in the life of the church. These may be long-standing or temporary committees. The persons on the committees serve at the request of the church board and are often appointed by the church’s moderator.
Special needs in the life of the church often call for the formation of a special committee. Examples of this are a building committee for the planning of expansion or remodeling, or a search committee for the hiring of church staff.
A Few Examples of our Community Involvement
Backpack Buddies helps provide food for kids in Leavenworth schools over the weekend. These kids frequently go hungry on the weekends. The Backpack Buddy program provides some of these kids a backpack which includes 12 items that are nutritious, easy-to-eat, easy-to-open and which appeal to children. Along with the Second Harvest Food Bank, we partner with 11 Leavenworth area churches to pack and distribute the backpacks to many of the children that receive free/reduced lunch during the week. Each year, Backpack Buddies tries to expand to reach more kids in need. The logo says: "Hunger doesn't take the weekend off." You can find more info at:
