Service opportunities at Falcon Heights Church.

Share your garden produce

Help supply fresh, healthy food for hungry neighbors this summer. Starting July 6, The Sheridan Story (which we support in feeding students at Falcon Heights Elementary) will be collecting donations of garden produce from area gardeners through its Grow and Give program.

You can drop off donations at The Sheridan Story at 2723 Patton Road in Roseville on Mondays and Tuesdays July 6 through Sept. 30. Please email Summer Programs Manager Christine Dummann (cdummann@thesheridanstory.org) with a brief description of your donation and to arrange a dropoff time.

Giving in the time of COVID-19

In the time of COVID-19, giving your volunteer time or sharing tangible goods can be difficult or impossible. However, your community still needs your financial support. Here are some ways to donate that will make a real difference for our church’s mission.

Give to our church

Your generosity matters now more than ever to help Falcon Heights Church fulfill our mission in new ways during this crisis. In addition to checks and electronic funds transfer (EFT), you can also give electronically:

  • By text. Text “Give” to 651-240-6681 (without the quotation marks). You will receive a response with a link to set up your donation and payment information. Select the account where you want the donation to go (plate, pledge, food shelf, etc.) and enter either your bank routing information or credit card number. (In case of a mistake, text “Refund” within 15 minutes to reverse the transaction. To modify your giving account information, text “Edit” to the same number, 651-240-6681.
  • Via our new eGiving portal. Visit the portal HERE and follow the directions. You will also find donation buttons at the top of the FHC home page and in the footer area at the bottom of each page on our website.

Once you set up your information, your donations are linked to your annual giving statement.

Give to The Sheridan Story

We’re no longer able to give cereal and snacks to Falcon Heights Elementary students via The Sheridan Story, but you can give money to the program to help feed families this summer. You can also donate garden produce throughout the summer.

Give to Holy Hammers-Habitat for Humanity

The pandemic has halted work for now on our 2020 Holy Hammers build and we’re waiting for word on what happens next. However, your financial donations are still needed. Text your donation or visit the eGiving portal as described above. You will be able to select Holy Hammers-Habitat for Humanity as the recipient of your gift.

Give to the Department of Indian Work food shelf

DIW is no longer able to accept donations of food during the COVID-19 crisis. But it continues to need money to buy food for the people it serves.

You can use the online giving methods above (specify “food shelf” — your donation will go to DIW), or visit the Interfaith Action website HERE. At that site, click the “DONATE” button at the top and follow the instructions on the donation page. You will be able to specify the Department of Indian Work food shelf as the recipient of your gift.

 

 

Holy Hammers build suspended

Our Holy Hammers build has been suspended due to the coronavirus outbreak. Last week, Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity suspended volunteer operations until after April 12 (after Easter Sunday). The Holy Hammers build for 2020 was scheduled to begin shortly after that. Obviously, in these uncertain times, the Holy Hammers build schedule is up in the air as well. We will pass along information regarding an updated schedule once we know it. But at this point, it appears unlikely that we will go forward with our original schedule. Stay tuned!

Please stay home and stay well.

Deliver Meals on Wheels

We need more drivers to deliver Meals on Wheels to seniors in our area. By volunteering, you can help seniors stay healthy and live independently at home. All it takes is one morning every three weeks.

Falcon Heights Church provides drivers every third Monday morning for Roseville Area Meals on Wheels. We pick up the meals at the Fairview Community Center at 10:45 a.m. Delivery time usually runs about an hour.

The delivery routes cover Falcon Heights and Roseville. We need drivers either to take on a regular route or to be on call as a substitute.

Typically, each route includes six to 10 meals.  Our drivers use their own cars and work individually or as two-person teams.

If you are interested, please talk with Carolyn Hill at 651-646-6656 or by email: davidcarolynhill@msn.com.

Prepare and deliver meals for church families

Can you help prepare and deliver meals? We need more volunteers to help some of our church families and individuals who are going through times of challenge and crisis. Please contact Tracy Faville (651-483-9260) or Charleen Prill (651-490-0415) if you can assist.
