Serve the City


Serve the City

We desire to love and serve Quincy in such a way that people would miss us if we were not here. We are committed to seeking the shalom (peace) of our city, as a foretaste of God’s Kingdom when it comes in all of its fullness.

For that reason, we are willing to partner with other churches and organizations who share a vision of bringing healing to our city.

3. Foster Care Network – The Forgotten Initiative: The Forgotten Initiative is a Christian organization that helps people support the foster care community. Here are a few ways that our church can serve the foster care community in partnership with the Forgotten Initiative:
Sign Up to Tutor: DCF has asked for volunteers to serve as virtual tutors if needed during remote learning. No experience needed, and they are looking for anything from helping kids get out some energy to math help. Learn more and sign up here.
Rake Leaves for a Foster Family: Contact [email protected] to sign up to help in the near future with yard work for a foster parent!
Gift Cards: Donate grocery store gift cards.
Diapers: Donate size 5 or size 6 diapers.
DCF Needs a Picnic Table for Family Visits: TFI is working to sponsor the purchase of a picnic table for foster family visits which currently must take place outside in a parking lot on metal chairs. You can donate toward that effort here.
Hair Care Kits for Kids in Foster Care: To help foster parents best care for children from all background in their home, TFI is putting together hair care kits with supplies and information on the best methods to care for these kids.
