It is exciting to see so many of our FBC family getting involved in the ministry at the Coffee Oasis. For those that do not know, the Coffee Oasis is a  christian ministry that serves homeless teenagers. They operate centers in Port Orchard, Bremerton, Poulsbo and Kingston.

 

Several FBC families are providing hot meals for the teenagers on Tuesday afternoons. In addition, many of you have provided money for Christmas presents for these teens and others have provided quilts. You truly are fulfilling the spirit of Matthew 25: 35-36.
