Save the Date!

Join us for an indoor block party celebrating 40 years of FCS and honoring the FCS Founder, Bob Lupton! Bob's life work has been the rebuilding of urban neighborhoods where families can flourish and thrive. In these 40 years, FCS has produced over 400 units of affordable housing, created a dozen small businesses, taught hundreds of churches and nonprofits about responsible charity, and incubated countless organizations that are creating change around our city! 
 
We'll celebrate on November 15th at The Fairmont, so we invite you to save the date and come celebrate with us! More details coming soon.

Our job was to kill and destroy as many as we could.  Hate for the enemy was OK, natural. It was like hating evil. And we were on the side of right. Best not to have feelings for these savages.
