All People Matter. It’s not just something we say, it’s something we live. We’re passionate about serving the people in our community and that means going out to those who may not be able to come to us! Want to know more? Contact Us Here

Urban Ministry | Streetlights
We serve our friends in the John Robinson, John DeShields and Orr-Weathers housing complexes in East St. Louis through three outreach ministries: Sidewalk Sunday School, Food Ministry and Adopt A Block.

Adopt A Block is our year round outreach to the Robinson-DeShields and Orr Weathers housing complexes in East St. Louis with one goal: connection.  Two Saturdays a month we visit the residents to bring hope and build lasting friendships.

Children’s Ministry | Sidewalk Sunday School
Saturdays during the summer we set up an interactive children’s program for the kids in John DeShields and Orr-Weathers. This ministry is a one-hour, high energy kids program with games, songs, exciting Bible teaching, and prizes.

Food Ministry | Include Some Food for Another Dude
This ministry helps to feed the hungry by packaging and delivering non-perishable food items to the East St. Louis families living in John Robinson, John DeShields and Orr-Weathers. Volunteers meet at FFC at 9.00a on the third Saturday of the month to package food prior to delivery.

Convalescent Home Ministry | Sonshine
There’s something to be said about honoring our elders. Each Sunday our teams do just that by bringing the love of God through praise & worship, teaching, and prayer to seven different convalescent homes. Spending the morning with these amazing men and women is a privilege.

Jewel Box Ministry
Isaiah 45:3 says, “And I will give you treasures hidden in the darkness— secret riches.” 

This is the scripture God prompted  Pastor Marjie with to go and minister in the strip clubs. These girls are treasures, made by God, but hidden in darkness. We’ve been given the call to go get these treasures and bring them to Jesus who will wash them with his cleansing blood and make them sparkle! More…
