Mobile Food Pantry @ Liberty Junior High
3rd Thursday of the month, 3 - 6 p.m.

The Network has recently purchased a refrigerated box truck. In addition to picking up food from the North Texas Food Bank, the truck will be used for a new Mobile Food Pantry program. Network is partnering with RISD to provide food distribution to eligible families once a month at five different locations to assist in ending food insecurity. 

FPCR is partnering with Network to support the mobile food pantry at Liberty Junior High on the 3rd Thursday of each month. Each month, we'll need at least 5 volunteers. Additionally, we need a dedicated driver (no CDL required) and a lead volunteer.

Please be in touch with Pastor Rosy if you're interested in volunteering or serving as the driver or lead volunteer.

Network Needs

To help those affected by the recent tornado, the Network is in need of the following items:
Baby Formula
Microwavable, pop-top meal options
Hygiene products: soap, deodorant, toothpaste
Laundry Detergent

Financial support is another critical need. Checks may be made payable to FPCR with "tornado" in the memo line and go in the offering plate or to the church office. You can also give directly to Network on their website at: thenetwork.org.

The Network is always in need of the following items: 
Large shampoo & conditioner, toothbrushes, toothpaste, TP, feminie hygiene items, and deodorant.
Food: soup cans, canned tuna & chicken, pasta, mac and cheese, sugar, oil, and baby food.

Thanks for giving!

Register at Kroger's and Amazon for FPCR

Don't forget that you can register for a percentage of your purchase at Kroger's and Amazon to come to FPCR, with those funds earmarked for the renovations. Sign up at your local Kroger supermarket near you and on Amazon.com for the Amazon Smiles program. Call the office if you have questions.

Earth Care Congregation

In helping with our "Earth Care Congregation" program, parents, help your children respect God's creation by avoiding their becoming part of our "throw away society." In the words of 16th Century Astronomer Johannes Kepler, "Nature uses as little as possible of everything." Perhaps we might do the same?
