Compassionate Hands is a program of 25 Wilson County churches that provides safe shelter to the homeless during the winter months. Each Saturday night from December to March, FPC volunteers host homeless women in the church’s Annex. Compassionate Hands at FPC is coordinated by the Outreach Committee.
How can you help with this ministry?
