F.P.C. is always looking for volunteers, including Board members. There are all kinds of volunteer projects including consultants, reception help, stuffing envelopes, etc. Board members are required to attend a monthly meeting and don’t need any experience as a Board member, just a profession of faith in Christ and a desire to serve mothers and their babies in many areas. If you are interested or would like more information contact Eileen Roberts.
