Serve In the Community

Christmas Angel Tree

All Ages

We are partnering again with Next Door Foundation to bring a gift to each child in their program.  We will have 75-80 gifts to purchase and deliver.  Once you sign up, you will receive an email with the wishes of a child.  Purchase one gift and bring it back to church wrapped (no gift bags) by December 4.

We are also partnering with Serenity Inns again to bring a gift to each of the adult men working on their recovery. We have slots to sign up for purchasing a gift for a resident as well as pillows for SI. You will purchase one gift and bring it back to church wrapped (no gift bags, no need to wrap the pillows) by December 18.

How it Works

Once you sign up, FPLC member Sarah Vant Hul will reach out to you with the information regarding who your person is and what wish(es) the person has for Christmas this year.  Serenity Inns information will come out later than the children from Next Door. 


If you have any questions, please reach out to Sarah Vant Hul through the link below. 


The Gathering

Middle Schoolers (with parents) 
on Up!

The Gathering is committed to feeding the hungry in body, mind and spirit. By preparing & distributing bag lunches, you can do this too! When you arrive at The Gathering, you will be greeted by the day's coordinator and given instructions for the morning. Generally, you'll be packing hot meals in "to go" containers, making sandwiches which go along with each meal and handing the meals out to guests at The Gathering. Afterward there is clean up time and some dishes to be washed. Please wear clothing you don't mind working in.

When minors are volunteering FPLC requests that an adult either volunteer with them or that you arrange for them to join another family attending the event who can get them home or stay with them until they are picked up.

Click the button below to sign up. Still want to help but those dates don't work? Sign up for other dates at The Gathering by clicking The Gathering's Volunteer Button below.

Blood Drives @FPLC

Multiple Dates, see below


After a break due to Covid and the construction, we are now able to schedule blood drives again right here at FPLC in Fellowship Hall!

We will have 7 drives throughout the next 12 months—approximately every 9 weeks, so you can donate at each one or whichever dates best fit your schedule.

We have 6 dates scheduled over the next year:


November 25; 9 am - 2 pm


January 17; 1 - 6 pm

March 23; 1 - 6 pm

May 23; 1 - 6 pm

July 26; 1 - 6 pm

September 28; 1 - 6 pm


If you are interested in volunteering at the blood drives, we would love to have one volunteer at each date for the last 45 minutes to answer any questions the Versiti staff may have and to lock the building up afterwards. If you are interested in one or more dates, please contact Stacia Hickey; or 414-352-8990.

Serenity Inns & Alumni House

Serenity Inn's goal is to provide a safe place for men in Milwaukee to recover from their addiction to either drugs or alcohol.  FPLC volunteers provide dinner to the residents 3 times a month. Eat with the men, drop dinner off or even order them a meal to be delivered by a restaurant! They are following COVID-19 protocols. For more information on volunteering, Covid requirements, and/or to sign up, click the "Make a Meal" button below. It's a great activity to do with your middle/high school-aged youth so they can hear the anti-drug/alcohol message.


If you can't make the FPLC dates, or they are full, you can sign up for other dates directly through Serenity Inns' volunteer page. Just click the button below to go to that page.

Afghan Refugee Resettlement


FPLC has a committee of devoted members who are sponsoring two refugee families from Afghanistan. Without donations of funds, furniture and time, we could not have dreamed of being able to do this! Thank you!
Members of both families are busy! They have begun school and English classes, some have found jobs while others are preparing for employement, they getting to know their way around their new city. They have begun taking the bus and are working toward getting their drivers lisenses.

We have a strong committee of people who are very dedicated to assisting these wonderful families. If you have any questions about the program or would like to donate funds to help support our efforts, please contact Stacia Hickey through button below.
