Be Our Guest for Lunch...
First Christian Church (FCC) in downtown Fort Worth participated in the Partners for Sacred Places New Dollars/New Partners program, starting in 2007. We worked with FCC on exploring and documenting their history, calculating the public value of each of their outreach programs, conducting a comprehensive building and space use assessment, and providing asset-mapping strategies to assist with identifying and forging new community partnerships.
Since then, Partners has continued to explore various space-sharing possibilities with FCC, one of those being a medical/dental clinic. In the meantime, Fort Worth city officials had been approached by several universities about the possibility of opening a charitable vision clinic in Fort Worth. Partners worked with the city to identify an appropriate and available space for such a facility. FCC was the right match, and the new state-of-the-art charitable eye clinic will open this spring, occupying the entire 2nd floor of First Christian Church!


Join us on March 7th for lunch, a sneak peek of the new facility and a presentation on how Partners for Sacred Places served as a catalyst for this win-win opportunity and, more importantly, how Partners can help other congregations explore and identify space-sharing possibilities that work for them!
