Special Offering for the Philippines

Only a few months ago, Super Typhoon Haiyan wreaked havoc on the residents of the Philippines, and many of the survivors are still living in temporary structures. Although public attention has shifted to other things, our congregation has not forgotten the need for continued aid.  On February 16, a special offering will be received for the victims of Haiyan. Please join us in heeding the call to care for our neighbors, and add your contribution during worship on February 16.

Fox Chase Church reaches out.

A few months ago, during our annual Advent Night, church members donated items for "packages of care."  These packages were sent to our college students and members of the military, to provide some cheer during overseas deployments and final exam weeks. We also included homemade holiday cards.  Here are few photos of the event, during which we packed boxes and decorated our building.
