FMCC Food Pantry
Mondays - Help Make Boxes for the Food Pantry
The weekly food pantry provides food to 900 to 1,000 needy people a week and relies on the volunteers who begin on Monday creating the boxes for different family sizes to be handed out on Tuesdays. Please consider offering an hour or two (from 12:00-2:30pm) of your time to help create these much-needed boxes!
Tuesdays - Food Pantry Setup
We begin unloading truckloads of food for our Tuesday food pantry at 10:00am. Lunch is provided imediately following (around 12:15pm) for volunteers who help set up.
Tuesdays - Food Pantry Distribution
Distribution of food from 1:00pm - 6:00pm - We need volunteers for every job imaginable. We ask that volunteers offer at least a two-hour block of volunteer time. Just show up to begin work a few minutes before we open the doors!

Clothes ClosetA church clothes closet is available on Tuesdays during the same hours as the Food Pantry distribution. Clients are invited to view the clothes available and are free to take any items that they can use for their family members. Pet Food Pantry
The pet-food pantry has been operating in its current scope since 2014 and is the only pet-food pantry in the county helping low-income people to provide for their pets. It hands out pet food, kitty litter and donated accessories including collars, leashes, shampoo and beds, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the third Friday of each month – or until supplies run out. Much of pet food comes from the Kansas Food Bank, which gets donations from area stores. Some of the pet supplies are donated by retailers because the bulk bags are damaged..
Counseling Services Available
Several FREE student therapists are available as well as one that requires a fee. The student therapists are provided and supervised by Friends University. Contact the church during office hours to get the contact information to make an appointment.
FMCC Celebration Singers (Choir)
Membership in our choir is open to anyone regardless of experience. While it is important to be able to match pitch (sing in tune) our group is made up of people with a wide range of musical backgrounds and abilities that learn music in different ways. For this reason we move at a slower pace and present an anthem in worship when it is ready to go rather than on a set schedule. We sing a variety of musical styles including sacred/traditional, pop music, and musical theatre. Typically the choir presents a program during the Advent/Christmas season and also during Lent/Easter. We also make appearances at community events such as PRIDE, and the AIDS Day of Remembrance. Choir meets on Wednesday evenings during the school year (approximately September - May) from 7:00 - 8:30 p.m. in the sanctuary. For more information call the church office (316) 267-1852 or speak with Shaun-Michael Morse, Director of Music.
