What can I do to help?

Of course, our mission partners always need prayer support and we will be offering quarterly prayer updates to remember in your daily prayers. Below are some donated resources and volunteers that are needed for our various missions.


  • Summer lodging for interns
  • Inviting interns out for a meal
  • Get to know our interns and provide encouragement
  • Pray for the faculty and staff of Belhaven in their mission to “prepare students academically and spiritually to serve Christ Jesus in their careers, in human relationships, and in the world of ideas.”
  • Pray that the students will remain steadfast and equipped to do this mission with excellence in a world that needs to see and experience the gospel of Jesus.
  • Pray for the ministry and equipping of the youth summer interns while they are here at FPCOS; pray that the Lord would use their time here to build them up and encourage them; pray that they would be a rich blessing to the youth and families of our church.


  • The team in Lebanon looks forward to visits from FPCOS members, so that the church can see firsthand what our ministry to Syrian refugees looks like and the fruit that God has so graciously shown us.
  • Pray that our increased team prayer time each month will lead us to starting a quarterly time of fasting and prayer, to include other individuals or groups serving the same people group, by the end of the calendar year.
  • Pray for the start up of at least two new Discovery Bible studies per semester, looking for new persons of peace or new followers of Jesus.
  • Pray for the bimonthly meetings with the women from the Crochet Project; meeting together in small groups monthly to share the Word and pray.
  • Pray for the follow-up with men from the soccer ministry, at least twice a month, to seek out persons of peace or go deeper in discipleship relationships with these men and their families.
  • Pray for the continued professional development of our team, each month focusing on a new/different aspect of ministry, in order to continue good team dynamics and growth.


  • Books with gospel encouragement for the library
  • Volunteer weekly or monthly, any day and time of the day between 8 AM and 10 PM (excluding lunch hours from 11-1). The chaplain helps schedule these classes and/or devotions at the Pascagoula jail
  • Be a grader for the Good News Bible Study correspondence course work for prisoners
  • Attend the annual fundraising event to hear inspirational messages from those who were reached by the gospel
  • Transition support as prisoners leave jail


  • Members of FPCOS engage in addressing special needs and participating in special projects — funding, talent, connections. (Speak with Michele or Neil Harris who are already very involved!)
  • Members of FPCOS can be involved in trips to Zambia and trips to Haiti when they resume.
  • If/when Healing Hearts hosts Haitians and Zambians, church members could welcome them into their home for a short visit and allow them to share at church/church functions.
  • Pray for a safe and healthy environment for the orphans and staff of Jesus’ Name Orphanage (JNO) and Rescue of God (ROG) Orphanage in Cabaret, Haiti through Healing Hearts’ financial support for food, water, schooling, housing, transportation and protection.
  • Pray for Healing Hearts’ continued partnership with these Haitian orphanages through advisement, provision, ministry in their communities, and encouragement.
  • Pray for spiritual growth during these challenging times.
  • Pray for continued outreach to other orphanages in Haiti, providing medical care, food support, malnutrition food supplementation in partnership with RTUF Medika Mamba and Haiti Orphanage Medical Support (HOMS).
  • Pray for expanded outreach to Zambia in partnership with Macha Mission Hospital and Zimba Mission Hospital.
  • Pray for increased financial support of Macha Mission Hospital in improvement of pediatric and neonatal services through education, mentorship, supplies – new opportunities for training and capacity-building.
  • Pray for the work in Greece supporting the activities of a small, new Christian church with active outreach to refugees that are “stuck” in Greece; mostly young families and single men.
  • Pray for this church in Greece providing active evangelism, church services, Christian activities, food and fellowship, home visits, and hospitality ministry.


  • Currently the FPCOS Care Team addresses individual needs as they arise.



  • Meet before worship and sit together in worship
  • Lead them to the Commons and Faith Foundations classes


  • Meet with neighbor in need after they have attended worship
  • Listen to their story, share and pray with them
  • Follow up with them to reassure them of Christ’s love, and also help to hold them accountable to goals and commitments



  • Pray for additional hosts on Sunday.
  • Pray for church members engaging with Helping Hands individuals, welcoming and caring for them.
  • Pray for the success of follow-up ministries with these individuals, both ours and those of other community partners


  • Medical, educational and recreational supplies
  • Used Vehicles or Boats
  • Check out our Amazon Wish List!


  • Curriculum and client books/workbooks for additional daytime classes for clients
  • Purchase new books for classes when reusing is not possible
  • Small books that outline the Gospel in detail – one that would allow each client to read/study it during their downtime and to take with them when they leave (ex: Getting it Right by Mike Fabarez or The Gospel of Jesus Christ by Paul Washer)
  • Doctors, nurses and dentists willing to receive Home of Grace clients


  • Leading one-hour 7 PM devotionals (6 PM on Saturdays) – giving your testimony, leading a Bible study, preaching, providing music
  • Giving a 15-minute Friday 10 AM graduation message or just attending to encourage graduates and their families
  • Help maintain landscaping
  • Driving clients to area doctor and dentist visits or the Pascagoula Adult Learning Center for GED or Workskills testing
  • Occasionally organize activity for an open two hours on Saturday mornings for something different (i.e. painting, pottery, crafts, outdoor or indoor games, etc.)
  • Becoming a regular daytime instructor in order for Home of Grace to offer even more class options for the clients on topics such as conflict resolution, marriage, etc.
  • The first two to three weeks are usually the most difficult for Home of Grace clients. Pray they will acclimate to the structure of their new schedule, persevere through withdrawals, and open their hearts and minds to receive God’s love, grace and salvation.
  • Each client hears the gospel on a regular basis throughout their time at Home of Grace – pray for the gospel fruit in each life. Counselors use the gospel as a foundation of their counseling sessions; instructors share the gospel during classes (Basic Christianity and Making Disciples); most hear the gospel in the chapel services by area pastors and lay pastors; and many of the nightly devotional leaders share the gospel during the time with the clients.

  • Pray that the Lord uses the excellent resources (podcasts, books, devotionals) that RYM has produced (and are in the process of producing) to yield abundant fruit.

Monetary donations for Brianne can be made HERE.

  • Sign up to receive her newsletter, send encouragement and pray faithfully for her. Learn more by contacting her Key Contact Jerrod Partridge here.
  • In the fall, Brianne is hoping to have a consistent visual artist assisting in events specifically geared towards the visual arts and visual arts community. When the time approaches, donations of/for art supplies will be a great help.
  • If FPCOS uses arts in any particular way, it would also help Brianne better explain to the churches in the Malaga area the different ways the arts can be used as an expression of faith, a way to connect and worship God, and how they can be used to evangelize. So, any videos or updates the church can send Brianne to share with churches in Malaga would be a great help and an example to show Spanish pastors how churches are already using the arts as an expression of faith.
  • For new 2023 monthly Noches De Las Artes (Arts Nights). Bri is organizing evenings for artists of all genres and backgrounds to come together and share their art – singing, dancing, writing poems/short stories, drawing/painting, theatre, etc. These nights are open for anyone and everyone to come in and share their gifts. Bri is collaborating with a local visual artist for this so she has great hope for the nights’ success.
  • God’s continued blessing upon Bri as she continues teaching Latin dance classes and serving with Be Church – connecting with local artists in one of the dance schools in Spain, making significant friendships within Be Church, and mentoring some of the amazing young ladies.
  • As she leads a small group within the church. She feels honored to have been asked to lead this year.

  • For kids’ hearts to be open to the Gospel and to the Lord’s love

  • For the kids who sign up for summer camp – that they get to clearly hear and experience the Gospel for the first time, or maybe in a new way
