The mission of Family Development Center is to provide comprehensive early childhood and strength-based family education programs, committed to the prevention of child abuse and neglect.
The FISH Food Pantry
Our congregation is one of several from our community that have joined together to operate this pantry for over 40 years. We donate food and funds as well as volunteer hours to help feed the hungry.
Habitat for Humanity
Low cost homes are built for select families in the Roseburg area.
Betty, our Administrative Professional, gives lunches, gas vouchers, bus passes, and other needed things to people who stop by the church office looking for some help.
Heifer Project International
Heifer’s mission is to work with communities to end hunger and poverty and care for the earth. With gifts of livestock and training, families are helped to improve their nutrition and generate income in sustainable ways. By giving families a hand-up, not just a hand-out, Heifer empowers them to turn lives of hunger and poverty into self-reliance and hope. At Christmas time, we encourage people to purchase animals in lieu of other traditional Christmas gifts. Gift cards are provided.
Meetings are held within the church Tuesday thru Friday at noon. Attendance averages 20-30 individuals at each.
The UCAN Confidence Clinic
The UCAN Confidence Clinic is a self-sufficiency program for men and women, 16 - 60+, offering ten-week Life and Career Planning sessions.
