Mission Committee

Our Mission Committee is a major emphasis for our work and support here in and around Everett, Washington. Every week our dedicated volunteers serve meals in unprecedented numbers to the marginalized in society with Dinner at the Bell. Your donations of time, gifts and talents also support other unique programs including Showers to the People. Our work in the community here and abroad continues through generous support for VOA, Souper Bowl of Caring, CROP WALK, Interfaith Family Shelter, Mar Elias Education Foundation/Pilgrims of Ibillin in Palestine, Christmas Joy, One Great Hour of Sharing, Pentecost and Peacemaking and Heifer Project.

Mission Committee meets on the 4th Monday from 5:30pm - 7:00pm in the Library. (Due to COVID-19, in-person Mission Committee meetings are cancelled until further notice.)

Poverty 101 – October 1 9:00am – 2:30pm Westminster Hall

Your FPCE Mission Committee invites you to join us for this important and engaging learning experience that will challenge everything you thought you knew about those living in poverty.

The staff of the Everett Gospel Mission will help us as individuals and as a church understand how to help and come alongside those affected by poverty, both in our community and beyond.

Go to www.egmission.org/poverty101 for more information and to register (scroll down to the link under “When are the trainings?”). Or sign up in Westminster Hall during Coffee Hour, and check with Judy Hammond or John Gebert if you have questions.

This is a free event, and a continental breakfast and lunch will be provided. 



Your Mission Committee continues to meet monthly to engage in conversation about how best to represent FPCE in serving our community and world.

In May, we were joined by Darcie Cooper who filled us in on the latest happenings with our mission partners, Byron, Inez, and Kawika Ahina in Yucatan, Mexico. We are excited to share that the Ahinas' joined us for worship on July 24. 
As you may recall, our planned mission trip to work with the Ahinas' in Mexico in 2020 was put on hold due to COVID. However, the Mission Committee has reconfirmed our support for a potential future trip as well as our continued ongoing support for the Ahinas’ mission organization, Yucatan Helping Hands.
