ABRO (Belarus) – July 2017-TBD

We are currently supporting the American Belarus Relief Organization (ABRO) through a number of ways.  Each summer, for 6 weeks, families host children from orphanages in Belarus.  Through this outreach, Belarus children receive medical attention, dental work, and a host of other services that give them strength.  In addition to these needs being met, visiting Belarus children participate in weekly FCOB worship, fellowship, g.groups, and other programming.  Interested participants can contact the Global Missions Team below.  For more information about our ABRO Ministry, contact Stacy Tissue or Jennifer Weeks.  If you are interested, please be sure to fill out an application by clicking here.

Haiti - August 2017

For His Glory Logo'For His Glory' is a Christian ministry, partnering with Maison des Enfants de Dieu, an orphanage in Haiti, as they seek to care for and meet the needs of orphans in Haiti. FCOB partners with FHG through funding as well as through regular visits by FCOB members over the course of the year.  Further ministry development and interaction with FHG will continue in the upcoming year.

FCOB also partners with the Church of the Brethren Denomination to participate in week long workcamps in Port-au-Prince and the surrounding areas.  The teams stay at the Church of the Brethren Guest House in Croix-des-Bouquets, worship at the local church on the property and spend the week doing construction work.  There is also time to travel around the capital to experience the culture and support the economy there by shopping at markets and shops.
