Global Opportunity

The 2020 Guatemala Scholarship Fund

Beginning in 2000, RPC mission teams to Guatemala recognized the need for a scholarship program to help with the costs of providing a Christian education for young Guatemalan students in the District of Quiché. These annual scholarships, funded by “sponsors” who are RPC members or friends, provide tuition for one full school year, books and materials needed during the year, and a chance for a bright future.

NFCC Back-to-School School Supply Drive

There is nothing like seeing the delight on a child’s face when they get to pick out their new backpack for the school year!  With your help, we provided 965 children with the supplies they needed to succeed academically and relieve the financial stress associated with starting school for their struggling parents.


Food Pantry Needs of NFCC

These items are needed most:canned tuna chicken and meat, cereal and oatmeal, dried beans 1 lb bag, all types of pasta, pasta sauce, tomato sauce, tomato paste, meals in can, jelly/peanut butter, mac n cheese, flavored rice/pasta, ramen noodle packs, canned beans, black beans, refried beans, garbanzo. All toiletries; toothpaste, shampoo, soap, etc. families can not use food stamps for these so the need is high. 

Not needed: Green beans, corn, peas, soups, pumpkin, gravy, white beans and kidney beans

Please place these items in the bins outside the church office or you may drop them directly at NFCC at 11270 Elkins Road, Roswell

North Fulton Community Charities (NFCC) is the primary human services agency for residents in North Fulton County. NFCC has a client choice panty; their clients go to the computers in their lobby and choose the food their family needs so this is a list of the current NFCC needs.
