FPCP Capital Campaign: Phase III
What's Cooking in the Kitchen?
Your donations are greatly appreciated, and tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.
FPCP successfully completed Phases I and II of our Capital Campaign, raising all the funds needed to make critical repairs and improvements to our very beautiful, historic, and busy little church!
In early 2018, FPCP community members had the opportunity to vote for what they considered to be the most important projects that still remain on our big "to-do" list. A major rehab for our church kitchen was the overwhelming favorite. That's why Phase III of our Capital Campaign is called: What's Cooking In the Kitchen?
The Cap Campaign Committee has set a fundraising goal of $25,000 for the work. Committee members will obtain quotes on the rehab work, which would include: major cleaning, new flooring, refinishing or replacement of metal cabinets, new lighting, cleaning the stove exhaust, a new roll-down fire screen and new dishwasher.
This is an important project because our church kitchen is a COMMUNITY KITCHEN. It is used every day of the week to support food preparation for important mission and outreach programs including: the Philipstown Food Pantry; the Community Nursery School; PAPA (Peekskill Area Pastors' Association) monthly soup-kitchen meal preparation; and our Midnight Run food prep for missions to the homeless. Our kitchen is regularly used by diverse community groups that have ranged from from local Girl Scout troops to activists who needed a meal stop while marching for housing, for farm workers, and for social justice. And, of course, as a congregation we use our little kitchen week after week for our church coffee hours, community and congregational meals, weddings, holidays, receptions, concerts, and other milestone celebrations in the life of our church and community.
