Participating in God's Mission at FPC Holt
We take the call to participate in God's mission seriously and God’s grace is reflected through so many ministries because of the generous hearts at FPC-Holt. We take Matthew 25 seriously in our efforts to join God's work in the world. This is done through regular hands-on work, such as repairing a neighbor's home or knitting a prayer shawl for someone in need. It's done through the hospitality of a stranger or refugee. It's done through providing community members a space to grieve and worship in the midst of a loved one's death.
And we pray God continues to find us faithful.
Local Mission Partners
Advent House is a local shelter for the homeless - and the only shelter that remains open on the weekends. Our church has the privilege of fixing and serving a meal for them six times a year.
FPC-Holt has a partnership with our neighboring elementary school. We come alongside these students through 1-on-1 tutoring twice a month. We also help coordinate an annual walk-to-school day.
The Holt Community Food Bank provides weekly, monthly, and holiday relief for individuals and families who might otherwise go hungry. FPC-Holt provides volunteers (and sorting space!) to make it happen.
FPC-Holt is a proud sponsor of Ukirk@MSU, which is a student-led faith community at Michigan State and a ministry of the PCUSA. In addition to financial support, we host gatherings and worship together a few times a year.
Global Mission Partners
Now in its 32nd year, the Tres M ministry in the Yucatan peninsula is near and dear to those who have taken the trip of a lifetime. Each year, the Michigan-Mayan missionarios support a building project in the Yucatan region of Mexico. These projects often involve cement and always include the love of Christ as we build cross-cultural relationship.
ACT Uganda is a partnership between churches in mid-Michigan and Muko sub-country in Uganda. Each year, we send missionaries and resources to support over 100 orphans, provide administration for a local high school, and teach trade skills to help economic independence.
The Global Family Fellowship provides daily support for the Burmese refugee community in the Greater Lansing are. GFF provides fellowship, transportation, and translation services as our siblings in Christ create a new home in the United States.
