Diocese wide Food/clothes drive and FTFT! Service Day!

A diocese-wide service initiative will be started from today. Each church will place a box in the church to collect canned food, clothes and toiletries.

Contact the FTFT! Delegates from your individual church for details.
Then, on September 26th we will go out as o1ne unit and distribute the items we collected to local shelters and soup kitchens in our communities. (each church will go to a shelter nearest to it)

We will then all meet afterwards for prayer and fellowship and share the joy we experienced in this day!

we will be meeting at 5 pm in Archanel Michael and St. Mena's Church in Staten Island, NY.

The most important things for now are the following:
1) place a large donation box somewhere in your church
2) announce to your church to bring in the desired items (canned food, clothes, toiletries) encourage sunday school children to donate items so they can learn the joy of giving and service!

*if you would like to participate in this service day and your church is too far away to join us for our post-service meeting, PLEASE feel free to just go ahead and serve! We encourage you to spend the next two months collecting those items with your church and go out and distribute them on september 26th(or another day if you need to)

July FTFT! Delegates Day! 7/18/09 11:00 AM

What: July FTFT! Delegates' Day!

Why: We had a great response to FTF50 but some of you couldn't make it
because of various church celebrations of Pentecost. So we're having
another one just for you!

Who: Anyone interested in being a servant-leader (aka delegate) in their church! 
When: July 18th 12pm
Where: St. Mark's Church in West Side, New Jersey

If you've ever served in your church with FTFT! before or if you have been interested in getting involved in your church's, join us and find out how! 

Our world is desperately waiting for the power of God to be revealed in us. (Romans 8:19)


The Time to serve...I was just thinking that there has to be a season for everything. In our church we know this to be true because our own church had a season for martyrdom, a season for growth, a season for expansion into other countries and now I feel it is the season of Service! So as the feast Pentecost has at last come; I challenge everyone to ask themselves, "How Can I serve?"  Then Pray, Pray and Pray and talk to your father of confession. When you are ready contact any member of FTFT and lets get the ball rolling Together!Peace and Love

Operation Hope

Always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear; having a good conscience."(1 Peter 3:15)

FFTT! works to equip its servants to give the proper defense to bring glory to the name of Christ and His Church.  Just as Christ prepared the Apostles to minister his word, Operation Hope will train its servants with the proper doctrine and basic foundation of the Coptic Orthodox Church's teachings to minister to those who are searching for the light Christ offers.

Through prayer, love, and the Apostles’ examples, Operation Hope lights the way for those in search of Christ, the Author and Finisher of our faith.
