As the Church, we are Christ’s body in the world and believe that we are always being re-formed to meet the needs of the world around us. Because of that, community outreach means a lot to us and leaving our city in better shape than which we found it is what keeps us going. We do that by:
- Providing backpacks of food for students at Washington Elementary School.
- Making and serving dinner at the Rescue Mission.
- Hosting lunch here at Everyone a Neighbor Day.
- Collecting food for area food pantries.
- Provide dental work and dentures for clients of Matthew 25.
- Donating time and money to area non-profits.
- Hosting “tough talks” on issues that matter to Fort Wayne.
- Korean Language Ministry
- FPC Day School
- Music Series
- Free yoga
- Men’s and Women’s Bible Study
- Weekly Book Clubs

Smock Senior Ministries
Smock Senior Ministries is a Presbyterian ministry of congregations in Indiana to enhance health, education, welfare and happiness for older adults.
