FPC has begun a new partnership with Plant with Purpose. Many at FPC have gotten involved with Plant with Purpose over the past two years, and we are excited to add them as a new global partner. Plant With Purpose is a Christian development organization that transforms lives in rural areas around the world where poverty and environmental degradation intersect. They equip impoverished farming families to change their circumstances, provide for their children, and live with God-given hope and dignity. They do this through sustainable agriculture training, land restoration, savings-led microfinance, church mobilization, and local leadership development.

Plant With Purpose equips rural communities to holistically grow out of poverty through a three-pillared program focused on: Environmental Restoration – Planting trees, rejuvenating water sources, building soil conservation barriers, teaching sustainable agriculture techniques, and many other initiatives; Economic Empowerment – Establishing VSLAs that educate and empower families to save regularly and access capital to start new businesses; and Spiritual Renewal – Inspiring communities to live generously, restore God’s creation and grow in their relationship with God.

Several families and individuals have come together to sponsor a village called Coatecas Altas in Oaxaca, Mexico. If you would like to learn more about Plant With Purpose (plantwithpurpose.org) and join us in supporting the Coatecas Altas region, contact Jenny Sommer at jenny.sommer2@gmail.com.
