First A.M.E Church of Alexandria Relocation Fund

Want to join me in making a difference? First African Methodist Episcopal (F.A.M.E.) Church of Alexandria Virginia is a small church with a BIG heart and an even bigger mission. Our Mission statement  is 

"Spread the gospel of Jesus Christ and address the spiritual social and physical needs of our church family and our local Community. " 

Why have we launched a GoFundMe account? 

The Route 1 improvement project in Alexandria Virginia will take by imminent domain, the property we have occupied for most of our 35 years of existence. This project, while important for our local community, will cause us to relocate to a new and more expensive area. In order to maintain and increase our level of service to our beloved community we will need increased funding that our small membership can not support. 

Your donation  will help with the following:
1.) Secure a new permanent location
2.) Continue our community based  programs such as:
       * Youth Development  
       *  Leadership and Mentorship For community youth.
       *  Nursing home ministry
       *  Food pantry
       * Homelessness assistance ( Chili lunch at drop in center)
       * Lunch program for adult Mental Health Facility  
       *  Youth Choir, Dance and Theatrical program 
 In addition to donating via GoFundMe we have also provided the URL link to our Donate page on our church website below.

Any donation will help make an impact. Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to us.
