'Little Library'

Funds were raised and a Little Lending Library was built. It awaits warmed weather for installation. It will house books for children and adults that the community can borrow at any time.

Morrison Food Pantry Volunteers

Every Thursday morning in May from 8 to 9:30AM, members of FPC volunteer at the Morrison Food Pantry located in The United Methodist Church. Come join us!

 

Morrison Ministers’ Council

The Council is made up of the ministers and leaders of the churches of Morrison. The group comes together regularly to discuss needs and challenges in the community and to provide support and funds to address them. The group also helps lead the annual town-wide Vacation Bible School that connects hundreds of children to the love of Christ. Recently the group has been working to address drug abuse and addiction and its impacts on children and families.

 

Paper Drives

In the late 2000s, FPC started a local paper recycling drive. Morrison Christian Reformed Church then joined us. We collect all forms of paper to be recycled at Self-Help Enterprises of Sterling IL. All documents are securely shredded there. This helps raise money for Self Help. Paper drive dates and times are posted to the Events page.
