What is MG&O?

With God, FCC will set the table for all who hunger and thirst. 

 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry and gave you food, or thirsty and gave you something to drink? And when was it that we saw you a stranger and welcomed you, or naked and gave you clothing? And when was it that we saw you sick or in prison and visited you? And the king will answer them, 

‘Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.’” 

Matthew 25:37-40

The Mission Giving & Outreach Committee's function is to support local, national, and worldwide missions by disbursing funds pledged by the Church’s congregation to the mission budget. The Committee also provides opportunities for participation in community service projects and outreach. Mission Giving & Outreach have a separate budget from the local church’s operating budget.

2017 MG&O Application Process

The 2017 Grant Application is now available. 

Please note this year’s Grant Application Deadline:

JUNE 1, 2017

The focus of this year’s application is funding projects that address homelessness in Colorado Springs. Homelessness was identified as a top concern for our congregation in a 2015 survey and has remained a top priority. A more recent congregational survey will develop further priorities within that scope of addressing homelessness. If your project does not propose to serve people experiencing homelessness, it will likely not meet the funding priorities for this year. 

Should you have any questions, please contact MG&O members Charlotte Bundgaard at charlotte@trystanphotography.com or
