Local Mission Opportunities
As a church, we believe you do not have to look far to find someone in need both physically and spiritually. While it is part of the kingdom work we are called to, mission work does not just happen abroad in a third world country! In the book of Luke, God calls us "to love our neighbors as we love ourselves." That's why we regularly seek out opportunities within the community to love and serve others.

Crown Point Community Care Cupboard
First Christian Church is the host of this locally sponsored food pantry. Crown Point Community Care Cupboard is located just down the street from our church. Other churches and organizations in our community join together to help provide food to those who are temporarily unemployed, terminally ill, or senior citizens on an insufficient fixed income who live in Crown Point and some of the surrounding communities. The pantry was started in 1989 and was backed by the Crown Point Ministerial Association.
This past year, the Crown Point CCC helped 705 families. The Lord has consistently provided for us to be able to meet the needs of those who came to us and we believe the Lord saw us through this past year and will see us through the coming year!
We are always looking for helping hands!
To find out how to volunteer or in other ways you can help, call 219-663-1853 and speak to Nelda or email email@example.com.
Some items we are always in need of are:
Tuna, peanut butter, soup, spaghetti noodles, spaghetti sauce, sugar, flour, laundry detergent, bar soap, shampoo, and toothpaste.!

Feed My Starving Children
Feed My Starving Children is a Christian nonprofit that helps you turn hunger to hope with your own two hands.
The approach is simple: children and adults hand-pack meals designed specially for starving children, and FMSC ships the meals to nearly 70 countries around the world.
Through FMSC MobilePac events, you can engage in an impactful meal-packing experience. A MobilePack gives you the chance to instill compassion in your community and improve the lives of malnourished children around the world.
Stay tuned for more information on event dates and how you may serve this ministry with us!

Rebuilding Together provides free home modifications and repairs to low-income homeowners, making homes safer, more accessible, and more energy efficient. We accomplish this mission through a single Rebuilding Day each year. This one-day rebuilding blitz harnesses the donations of skills, materials, and funds to accomplish repairs on approximately 10 homes in the community during this single day. We call this rebuilding day "Christmas in September", as it typically occurs in mid-September.
Stay tuned for more information on how you may serve and be a part of this incredible day!
