Serving our wider community
Seekers and servants, growing in God’s transforming love.
Falcon Heights Church and members of our congregation support many emergency and community-building efforts through donations and volunteer service. The many community outreach opportunities we’re involved in include…
Community Outreach in the Falcon Heights-Roseville area
Meals on Wheels. Volunteers from Falcon Heights Church work with the Roseville Senior Program to deliver meals to homebound older and disabled adults, helping them to continue living independently.
Falcon Heights Elementary School. This neighborhood school a few blocks from our church sends packages of food home with low-income children to supplement their meals over the weekend. Falcon Heights Church currently is providing breakfast cereals each week for backpacks for about a dozen families.
English language classes at Fairview Community Center. A group of church volunteers meets regularly with immigrants who are learning English at the Roseville Schools’ Adult Learning Center to help them practice their conversation.
Community Outreach in the greater Twin Cities
Simpson House. Through community outreach Christian ministries we feed the hungry. We make and donate 300 sandwiches and bag lunches several times a year for residents of the Simpson Housing Services shelter in Minneapolis. All ages participate in sandwich-making, and the congregation supports this food outreach ministry. We purchase of food supplies through a monthly Communion offering.
House of Charity. Volunteers from our church, both adults and high school youth, help prepare and serve a public meal several times a year at House of Charity in Minneapolis, a nonprofit serving homeless people.
Habitat for Humanity (Holy Hammers). Our church is part of an ecumenical coalition of 14 Twin Cities churches working with Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity to bring affordable housing to our community. Together, the Holy Hammers have built 21 complete homes and parts of eight others, serving more than 155 new homeowners. As a group we have donated more than $1.1 million to help sponsor our building projects.
Interfaith Action of Greater St. Paul. We collect food year-round for the food shelf at Interfaith Action’s Department of Indian Work, as well as winter mittens, hats, socks and other warm clothing for people who use the department’s services. We also participate in School Tools, another Interfaith Action program that collects school supplies in late summer for homeless and low-income children.
