Welcome to the Purple District Website!
Our District is comprised of approximately 850 congregants who live in the Eastown and East Grand Rapids vicinity. We get together to socialize and to support the three on-going focus areas of Fountain Street Church which are: education, environmental sustainability, and social action issues. Your District Coordinator is Judy Botts.
We, Beyond Sunday Shared Ministry Coordinators, are comitted to helping Purple District members feel that they are a viable part of the larger Church community. Our goal is to "grow connections" among our members via the variety of activities we sponsor. A few events we've participated in include:
*Hosting soup luncheons after the Sunday Worship Service
*Potluck brunches at Church, and potluck dinners at congregants' homes
*Assembling Welcome Baskets for Dwelling Place residents
*Gathering for Saturday morning breakfast at local eateries
* Baking cookies with Blue District members each December
* Hosting Bingo Night at Ferguson Place, (a Dwelling Place community)
* Assisting with Memorial Services
* Sponsored "Food, Inc." movie at FSC
* Organized 2 weeks of respite care visitation for fellow congregant
* Organized games for the All-Church Picnic
