Local Missions

St. Mary’s Soup Kitchen

St Mary’s Soup Kitchen has been a fixture in downtown Fort Wayne for many years. This mission has served thousands of people in need of a nutritious meal, and even survived a fire that destroyed the Church.  They serve over 300,000 meals a year as the respond to the call of the beatitudes to feed the hungry.  Soup and bread are provided sevn days a week and milk is served three times a week to all who come.  The Soup Kitchen's annual cost of $270,000 is made possible soley through monitary donations as well as contributions of food and time.


Greater Fort Wayne Campus Ministry

This ministry is an exciting and significant outreach on Fort Wayne College campuses that allows those students to hear about the love of Christ. Another outcome is the many student leaders who serve the campus community in creative and encouraging ways that will exalt Jesus. An average of nearly 120 students attend weekly meetings. Last January this ministry was dropped from one of their major funding agencies.


Camping Scholarships

The Forest Park congregation has a long history of supporting our young people. The camping experience provides a week full of opportunities for a young person to grow in his or her faith, meet other youth, and to study and learn what it means to live in a caring, Christian world.
