First Christian Church of Glendora began meeting in the community in the early 1880’s. In 1885, the church was chartered and in 1887 the congregation built its first building on Wabash and Bennett. In 1922, the congregation set in place the cornerstone on their current “home” on the corner of Glendora and Bennett.
This iconic 100 year old building is home to Sunday worship, hundreds of children and adults who gather to learn art and experience hope at our Fine Arts Academy, Cub Scout Pack 482, a Narcotics Anonymous group, and many other community activities and events. From serving as a Red Cross shelter during the floods of 1969 that destroyed homes and hillsides, to being a gathering place for blood drives, food drives, annual parades and activities like the Train Show and Empty Bowls, FCCG has gladly and humbly opened our doors to the community.
As FCCG continues to open its doors to the community and expand our Arts Center, there are repairs and improvements that we would like to make to our building. To accomplish all of this, we are applying for matching grant funds and reaching out to the community to invite others to contribute to this Capital Campaign.
In applying for matching grant funds, the funding organizations look to the support and participation of the requesting organization. This is where YOU come in, we would love to have community support and participation. If you have been blessed by a program at FCCG, we invite you to participate in this campaign. No gift is too small.
Thank you for your consideration of contributing, as together we embrace the future and celebrate our past.
