Our Board of Elders has allocated the budgeted funds across these ministries and are always looking for more Christ-centered non-profits to support. We are truly blessed to be part of such a giving and caring congregation!

Mission Partner Program

A percentage of the giving received by our church family has been allocated to support Missions. The management of the funds and overall program is assigned to the FOC Board of Elders (BOE). The BOE has established 3 areas of focus:

Local Missions/Outreach – Organizations within our local geographical area
Rocky Mountain District/Missouri Synod – Mission/Outreach opportunities within the greater Rocky Mountain District or LCMS as a whole
National/International missions – Any other Mission/Outreach opportunities that do not fit within the previous two categories

With that in mind, the BOE needs your help. We know of many great Mission opportunities out there but do not want to limit our potential mission partners simply because we don’t know about them. As such, we have set up a form that you can fill out to provide the BOE with background information about any Mission opportunity that you are passionate about. If you have an opportunity you would like to recommend, take a moment to complete the Mission Partner Program form. Please reach out to your Elder if you have any questions about our Mission Partner Program at Family of Christ.
