We believe we were blessed with the power, privilege and courage to serve this hurting and broken world.
We work together to improve the health of our community through intentional communication, collaboration, and hands-on activities. Whatever your interests, gifts, or creative spark, there is a way for you to get involved!
Everyone deserves the basic comforts of home — a bed to sleep in, a table to share a meal, a lamp to light the way. We collect slightly-used furniture, beds, and kitchenwares to deliver to our neighbors in need. Donations can be dropped off on Monday afternoons from 1-4:00 pm. We also need plenty of volunteers throughout the year to sort, tag and deliver items around the community.
SERVE OUR COMMUNITY
One of our favorite ways to do church is by interacting with our community. We serve meals, run donation drives, build things, fix things, and share friendship and love with our neighbors. Whether you have an hour or a day to give, we’ve got a place for you. You can view all service partners here.
SERVE OUR WORLD
Just as Jesus did, we want to walk alongside people and build relationships with them as they take their next steps in their faith journey. We periodically travel together on mission trips and currently have missionaries in Zambia, Peru and Taiwan. Please prayerfully consider a financial gift to support the needs of these communities.
We need delivery volunteers on the second Saturday of every month, but we also need volunteers to work in the warehouse and to do scheduled pickups of donated furniture throughout the month. Please check the calendar for furniture ministry workdays and delivery days, and fill out a volunteer interest form so we can contact you!

I work for a local organization that would like to partner with the FPC Furniture Ministry. What are the next steps?
All of our furniture clients are referrals from social workers and mental health workers assisting clients through Partner Agencies. In order to become a Partner Agency, please review the guidelines and complete a Furniture Ministry Partnership Form. Please call us (336-212-2937) with questions or for additional information. Note: We can only deliver to and serve clients in Alamance County.
I have items to donate to the furniture ministry, but I can’t drop them off on Monday afternoons. What should I do?
Please email (Furnmin3@gmail.com) or call (336-212-2937) our ministry team to schedule a time to drop off your items. We can also occasionally pick up items on a case-by-case basis.
