Welcome to the Flushing Christian Outreach Center
The Flushing Christian Outreach Center is an inter-denominational organization made up of a team of dedicated and passionate volunteers from the Flushing, Michigan area, reaching out with God’s love to help meet the physical, spiritual and emotional needs of the people in our community. Our volunteers are committed to helping provide food and clothing to those in need within the Flushing community, as well as connecting them with appropriate local resources.
A Message from the Program Manager
During the holiday season of giving, families in crisis are blessed with the community’s outpouring of generosity. After the Christmas trees come down and the decorations are once again on the basement shelves, most of us go back to our pre-Christmas routines. Those who are under-resourced also go back to their routines – routines of crisis.
Every family who comes into FCOC has their own story that forced them to bravely climb the six concrete steps leading to FCOC, many needing help for the first time. Our clients’ world of “normal” can be heart breaking to anyone who has not experienced severe financial crisis. With that being said, FCOC continues to strive to be Christmas to our clients all year long, offering food, clothing, prayers, and most of all love.
- “This place is so small, but so big in love and hope.”
- “I like to come here; I don’t have anyone else to unload my problems to.”
- One senior gentleman comes for a hug from every volunteer. “A hug makes everything easier.”
God commands us to love Him and love one another. We all have the opportunity to spread Christmas throughout the whole year by blessing hungry neighbors with a portion, big or small, of the resources with which God has blessed us.
Please join us in the fight with hunger right here in the Flushing Community.
