Help FCC Bloom with the Giving Tree!

Updated: Jul 31, 2023

Our church is well-loved and heavily used! Somethings in our church have not been updated for decades. Some tasks were done by others who can no longer do them. In an effort to make our church as attractive, welcoming, and safe as possible, the Council has created an initial list of items that you can help support! This list will grow and change as the church grows and changes.

How it works:

In the narthex of the church, there is a tree and below it some leaves which are made by children of the church. Select the item from the list below (updated list is found in the narthex) that you would like to donate, financially or time-wise. Once your donation is complete, add a leaf to the tree so we can see how our church continues to bloom!

Giving Financially:

If paying by check, write in the memo the item you would like the money to go to. It can be a portion of the total gift, and does not have to be the full amount. Checks can be dropped off in the little church inside the narthex or mailed to the church; 1701 SW Collins Ave Topeka KS 66604.

  • If paying electronically through Realm;

    • Log into your account or complete as a guest

    • Enter the Amount you would like to give

    • In the "Fund" field, select "Giving Tree"

    • In the "Memo" field, enter the item you would like your gift to go towards

Giving of your Time:
