Fort Bend Family Promise

At this time, the Fort Bend Family Promise team, has decided that St. John’s UCC will not be a host church for FBFP.

Recognizing that homelessness for children in our community is still a critical issue, we want to encourage members of our congregation to consider various ways to support the mission of FBFP.

Monetary donations can be mailed to:

Gift cards to Kroger’s HEB, Wal-Mart for groceries for families in the program would be appreciated and you may mail or deliver to the above address.

Donations of laundry supplies, cleaning supplies, toiletries and dental hygiene items are also needed.

At this time, it is necessary to call 832-847-4734 to set up a time to drop off any donations at the facility. If it works better for you, you may drop donations off during the mornings to the church (please clearly mark that these items for intended for FBFP or you may contact a committee member to make arrangements for delivery.

Mid-Year Congregational Meeting

Due to Covid 19 and our not currently meeting or worshiping in person, the Mid-Year Congregational Meeting was postponed from July 26, 2020 until Sunday, August 16, 2020 via Zoom. Our morning worship service will be led by Rev. Felix Carrion and towards the end of the service the Mid-Year meeting will convene. As with each week, members are encouraged to worship via Zoom with us.

Worship by Zoom only on Sunday mornings

Due to the rise in recent Covid 19 cases and our concern for our church members and our community the Church Council has decided to return to our worship services being via Zoom only (no in-person worship). This decision is effective immediately and covers the month of July at least and will continue to be evaluated as we go through the summer months.

The Zoom invite and worship bulletin will be emailed out weekly for your use. We continue to keep each of you in our thoughts and prayers. Should a concern arise please know that you can still contact the church office.
