Get a Passport
Having a passport is a must if you plan to travel outside of the United States. (Not to mention that it's really cool to have one.) Is your passport ready? Do you know when it expires?

Pray for Missions
Praying for missions keeps you tuned in to God's way of thinking throughout your day. Keep track of your prayer time and turn it in by phone or at one of our church services. Each month, we send our missionaries an update on our prayer time. What an encouragement!
Give a Missions Offering
At Family Community Church we receive a missions offering on the third Sunday of every month. You can also give online.
Write to a Missionary
Encourage a missionary by writing a letter to let them know that you care for them and you are praying for them. Call the Family Community Church office at (916) 334-7700 to find out what missionaries you can write to and how you can reach them.
Memorize Missions Scriptures
How much scripture can you quote? Keep your mind sharp by memorizing what God says about missions.
Save Cans and Bottles
Recycling cans and bottles is a GREAT way to raise money for missions. So far this year, Family Community Church has raised $1,275.89 in cans and bottles alone!
Budget and Plan for a Missions Trip
Missions trips take a lot of planning ahead. Start planning ahead now for the trip you want to take. Think about airfare, lodging and food, clothes and supplies. And make sure you have a working passport!
