1. PRAYING FOR OUR CITY
Prayer is a powerful tool that The Church can use to petition God for more of His presence, blessing, and restoration within a city. We have taken a map of the entire City of Hagerstown and assigned a section to each FOC Partner. Each church will especially focus on covering their section with prayer so that the entire city is covered! To participate, contact any of the FOC Partner Churches listed HERE for more info!
2. OVERCOMING ADDICTION
"If you're not infected with this terrible disease, you're affected in some way. We've got to do something."
Brooke’s House is committed to providing a safe and emotionally supportive living environment to women suffering from the disease of addiction here in Washington County. You can help Brooke's dream become a reality by visiting and giving at brookeshouse.org
3. FOSTER CARE / ADOPTION
Envision an entire city transformed by the holy spirit, one block at a time! By performing acts of service and building long term relationships, we believe God is creating a lasting impact of each home and family. You can get involved by adopting the block where you live or by joining a current block and assisting in projects ranging from block parties to street cleanup.
5. HOMELESSNESS / HUMAN TRAFFICKING
The issue of modern homelessness is broad and complex, affecting many of our neighbors and communities. Homeless are most often unable to acquire and maintain regular, safe, secure and adequate housing. By working together and partnering with various programs, we can make an impact on this issue.
Victims and traffickers have told law enforcement that Maryland is a “goldmine” for human trafficking. Human trafficking has been around for centuries; however, it is an emerging crime in Maryland. It is imperative that Maryland is mobilized and coordinated to ensure that Maryland is well-equipped to serve our victims and prosecute traffickers.
By partnering with local schools we have the opportunity to meet physical needs but furthermore encourage and invest into the next generation. Events at the school allow us build relationships with the kids as well as the families. You can get involved by helping serve at a large seasonal event or by serving on a more regular basis in the weekly after school program.
