1 Peter 4:10, NIV "Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms.”
Flower City Work Camp (FCWC) is a ministry that unites Rochester-area churches to deliver a range of services into the City of Rochester. Each year, students, grades 7-12, and adults from more than 50 churches serve during Monroe County schools' spring break improving homes, working with city teens at basketball and soccer camps, or with younger children in neighborhood Sidewalk Clubs to bring the gospel of Jesus Christ to some of the neediest areas of our city.
Rochester Christian Reformed Church has been involved with FCWC for over 25 years, sending an average of 15-20 students and 8 adult volunteers each spring to serve in this ministry. Members have also used their gifts to serve breakfast and dinner to the 800 participants, provide lunches to the work sites, stay overnight with the students, provide overnight security, or clean up the base camp when the week is done.
To participate adult volunteers must fill out an application on the FCWC website. Youth participants must be active members of the church youth group and fill out an application on the FCWC website.
Rochester Christian Reformed Church stands firmly behind our belief
that God calls us to this ministry to our youth and to our community.
