The single biggest obstacle to the church’s mission and vision of peace with justice is the fact of the segregation of the poor / the oppressed / the exploited / the neglected / the stranger from the comfortable / the secure / the satisfied. — Jack Jezreel

We believe how we treat the hungry, the thirsty, the naked, the stranger, the sick, and the prisoner is how we treat Christ himself. “Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me” (Matthew 25:40). God calls us to protect and [help] those who are poor and vulnerable, and our treatment of people who are “oppressed,” “strangers,” “outsiders,” or otherwise considered “marginal” is a test of our relationship to God, who made us all equal in divine dignity and love. - Richard Rohr

Our proclamation of the lordship of Jesus Christ is at stake in our solidarity with the most vulnerable. If our gospel is not “good news to the poor,” it is not the gospel of Jesus Christ (Luke 4:18). - Richard Rohr

Mission: Inspire compassionate service to meet the physical and spiritual needs of our community through cooperative, healthy partnerships.

Vision: Build a stronger community in Forney through charitable acts of kindness.

Non-profit 501(c)(3) enabling healthy cooperation
For too long, organizations in Forney have acted independently in trying to meet the needs of this community. This has created a huge amount of redundancy in costs and administrative time and effort.

Some organizations have time or personnel, but limited financial capabilities. Others have the financial wherewithal, but lack time or personnel. Some have it all! But, if we work together, cooperate and participate together, it is a win-win for everyone…especially those who need our help.

FCM seeks to enable volunteers, donors and ministries to connect to each other, and to coordinate their efforts to build meaningful and impactful relationships with those who need our help, to the benefit of everyone involved.

The FCM financial records are available for review. Funding for FCM overhead is managed through donations from its Board of Directors. It is run by that board, with representation options available for each partnering organization.

Let's work together to meet the needs of our community… openly, honestly and effectively!

HELP OUR STUDENTS FOR NEXT YEAR!

Our Forney ISD students need school supplies and uniforms! With Forney ISD's leadership, FCM is bringing the backpacks and uniforms effort together into one big, cooperative effort.

  • 300 backpacks are available at about $40 apiece. Please consider a donation to give a student a backpack full of supplies, with items for the appropriate grades in school. Please consider a donation of your funds through the Donate button on this site to make this happen!
  • A student's week of new school uniform tops and bottoms can be purchased for $80. Donated (recycled) uniforms help a lot…so please donate your gently used, washed and good condition uniforms at the Presbyterian Church of Forney. But, because of COVID-19, the availability of recycled uniforms is very limited. Please consider a donation of your funds through the Donate button on this site to make this happen!
  • Both a backpack of school supplies and a week's worth of uniforms can be purchased for $120 per student. Please consider adopting a student with your financial support through the Donate button on this site.
With your donation, FCM's partner organizations will put together, coordinate and deliver these customized backpacks and uniforms to the students on August 1, 2020 at the Resource Fair. These are not just eleemosynary activities, as FCM's partner organizations donate right along with you! THANK YOU, and have a great summer!

Please consider donating to the Cornovirus Relief Fund by clicking the Donate button and selecting that from the list. This fund will help the FISD children with food and school supplies. Again, ALL funds donated go to the people who need the help!

Thanks to your donations:

  • School supplies and hygiene products were purchased and handed out freely at the Forney ISD Resource Hubs every Thursday or Friday morning. That program has ended, but we are continuing to provide help to those in need by delivering to our seniors and those who have difficulty making it to the Food Pantry.
  • FCM purchases groceries from Brookshire's every week since April 7th and makes deliveries to seniors and others in need in the Forney area. At an average cost of $30 per person… the program is growing fast as word gets out. THANK YOU for your help and support!
