Christmas For Others is a city-wide effort to provide holiday items, housewares, food, clothing, gifts and hope to over 75 families in the Mid-Del and Choctaw areas. Participating families are nominated by members of the community and then screened and selected by C.F.O coordinators. First Christian Church is blessed to partner with other area churches to serve our community in this way.
First Christian Church supports the Mid-Del Food Pantry with food drives 3x/year and monetary donations. Mid-Del Food Pantry is a resource providing food to those in need in Eastern Oklahoma County. For more information or to contact the Mid-Del Food Pantry, please click here
Mobile Meals serves an average of 60 meals every Monday. We have five routes and each route has a driver, using their own vehicle, and a delivery person. We have five cooks with two cook assistants. Each set of cooks has a certain Monday that they cook and they create their own menus. FCC-MWC is honored to partner with five other Churches in the area and each Church delivers on a different day. Mobile Meals is an all volunteer program and all are welcome to participate in this ministry.
