I am very blessed to have many dedicated members of the Mission Committee and Outreach volunteers. These FPC members devote countless hours of their time and assist me with mission budget allocation, grant reviews, as well as serving as coordinators for various subcommittees and/or as liaisons with mission partners. The Mission Committee is comprised of elders, deacons, PW representatives and at-large church members. Outreach volunteers assist with Friendship Fund operations, client interviews, and FPC Shares. I couldn’t do my job effectively without their help and I want you to have the opportunity to get to know them better.

Kathy: Why did you choose to spend your summer volunteering in Outreach and at A Place at the Table?
Luke: I have been volunteering at APATT for a while. Maggie Kane came to FPC a couple of years ago and her talk really inspired me to get involved with the café. I found her restaurant model and enthusiasm captivating and wanted to help. I attended Exploris Middle School and was familiar with the downtown area. I became an Outreach Intern to learn more about how our church helps our friends and neighbors in the community.
Kathy: If you could invite 3 people (living or dead, fictional or real) to dinner, who would they be and why?
Luke: Music plays a big role in my life. I would love to have the opportunity to dine and speak with Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder and Jacob Collier. They are all musical geniuses.
