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.
When FCOC reaches out to the community for financial donations, food, clothing, and volunteer help, we are never disappointed. I want to humbly thank the many organizations who have allowed me to be a speaker at their meetings. The goal of FCOC is to spread the word about our services, and create partnerships with businesses, organizations, individuals and the schools. With the support of the entire community, we can serve more people in crisis. “Hunger is a love problem!”
There are so many times that God shows His presence in our outreach center. Here are some of His miracles.
A family from Florida safely reached their sister’s Flushing home before Hurricane Irma hit. The family had two days to return to Florida due to a job commitment. For now, their car is their home. The mom came in and told us that she didn’t know what she was going to do. They spent nearly all of their money making their trip to Michigan. The FCOC volunteers went into action, bagging food, gathering clothing, praying, and, providing hope! Before they drove off, the grateful women said, “I left my sister’s and just started driving. I didn’t know what we were going to do. Then I saw a church. I sat in the parking lot where my family prayed for God’s mercy.” Holy Cross Lutheran Church sent this family to us. Amen!
As a funeral procession went by FCOC, one of the volunteers and I began talking about the many deaths and illnesses that have been occurring lately. Then my eye caught a bright pink Bible on the giving table. I told my friend, “This is where we need to turn.” I started thumbing through the pages and came across some loose handwritten pages. God’s message was sent by someone unknown to remind us of His love, comfort, and mercy.
Thank you Flushing Community for your fight against hunger!
