FCPC teams need your help at B.O.B.S.!
FCPC has four teams that each serve just one Thursday per month. Our team members arrive about 5:00 a.m. to prepare our designated breakfast—biscuits and gravy—along with sandwiches for sack lunches. We serve guests from 6:30 to 7:15, and volunteers are usually finished with clean-up by around 7:30. It’s rewarding work and a great way to start the day!
What is B.O.B.S.?
Breakfast on Beech Street (B.O.B.S.) is a collaborative,non-profit, community service whose mission is to help improve the quality of life in our area by providing a free, hot breakfast and sack lunch to anyone—regardless of age, race, creed, ethnicity, religious affiliation, or income. Our service helps both families and individuals—working poor,disabled, underprivileged, senior citizens, and homeless. Aside from the Salvation Army, B.O.B.S. is the only organization in Abilene providing free breakfast & lunch five days a week. B.O.B.S. serves approximately 70-90 people per day (1,400 breakfasts and 2,200 sandwiches per month).
B.O.B.S. is the combined effort of five different Christian denominations and churches: First Central Presbyterian Church, First Christian Church, First United Methodist Church, Episcopal Church of the Heavenly Rest, and Highland Church of Christ—all serving Abilenians in harmony and united purpose since 1996. More than 125 volunteers drawn primarily from these five churches and numerous student volunteers from area universities keep B.O.B.S. running.
