We affirm our commitment to our community by working together, taking risks for social equality and peace in our city, our nation and our world.
FUMCOG’s members celebrate each Christmas and Easter by making a special offering for community needs. The Community Needs Committee accepts grant proposals from the local community for projects that promote social justice or community empowerment, especially (but not exclusively) in Northwest Philadelphia.
After a record-breaking Easter Offering, in which the congregation contributed more than $10,000 to benefit FUMCOG's Venture Scout troop, the BSA Girls Troop, The Welcome Church, and the Sanctuary families, the Community Needs Committee is now seeking applications for the Christmas Offering.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask Nick Claxton, Bill Ewing or any other member of the Community Needs Committee. Please click on the image to the left to download the application form.
