Reaching the Community

The people of FBC Garland live in a community with many needs. Those needs present opportunities to love our neighbors but also tell the story of Jesus. If you are seeking a chance to make a difference, take a look at our ministry opportunities. For questions, please contact the Missions Office at 972-276-7194, x288 (Teresa) or x233 (Jim).

Eastern European Mission

This December, members of the FBCG Refugee team will travel to Poland and Belgium to minister to Ukrainian refugee children.  Because of the economic need, our team will present Christmas gifts to more than 700 Ukrainian refugee orphans and children.

You can participate in bringing Christmas to these children with your gift.  Your gift of $20 will purchase presents for 1 child.

When choosing where your donation goes, please choose other and designate to Ukrainian Refugee Ministry. Thank you for your generosity.

Please continue to pray for the refugee families, as they have been uprooted and are living in temporary housing.  The weather conditions there are very cold this time of the year and we pray they will be able to continue to stay in the refugee centers throughout the winter months.  Thanks again for praying.  Please consider giving for Ukrainian Humanitarian Relief.

Operation Christmas Child

Operation Christmas Child
Build a box online year round!

The party may have passed, but this is a great way to show God’s love for children while sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ.

Ways to help year round:

  1. Pack a shoebox online for $25.
  2. Support OCC by making a donation toward shoebox shipping costs. (Why $10 for shipping?)
  3. For more information on what to pack in your shoe box, go to samaritanspurse.org/OCC
