Empower Communities this Giving Tuesday with FMCSC

As Giving Tuesday approaches, the Free Methodist Church of Southern California (FMCSC) invites you to explore the profound impact of Tzedakah, a form of charitable giving distinct from traditional tithing. While tithing, as outlined in Scripture, supports the operational needs of the church akin to the maintenance of the temple and its ministers, Tzedakah focuses on altruistic giving to those in need within our wider community. This Giving Tuesday, we embrace this spirit of Tzedakah, extending our support and compassion beyond the walls of our church.

Local Action: Food Pantries – A Vital Community Resource

Our local food pantries are the first line of defense against food insecurity in our communities. These essential facilities offer more than just sustenance; they represent the church in action, serving as a living testament to our commitment to those in need. By volunteering your time or making a monetary donation, you help sustain and grow these crucial community resources. Support your local food pantry to make a direct impact in your community.

If your church doesn’t already have a food pantry, consider supporting the work at DC Pantry, at Dream Center Lake Elsinore, an FMCSC ministry.
