Community Action Committee
Reaching out to the Flagstaff area community, this committee solicits proposals from Beacon members to support local non-profit groups and activities. Members may complete and send a nomination form to the Beacon office. Undesignated contributions to each month’s first four Sunday service offerings above $350 (which goes to Beacon’s operational budget) will be presented to the non-profit chosen by the Social Action Team, based on proposals submitted by the congregation.

Beacon’s community partner for March 2020 is Flagstaff Shelter Services (FSS). Established in 2006 by concerned citizens, business owners, and faith-based organizations, FSS provides critical shelter, food, and access to resources for Flagstaff’s most vulnerable people. Regardless of faith, mental health or sobriety, the shelter serves any adult experiencing homelessness.
In 2014, FSS became a year-round shelter serving those in need every night of the year, providing personal and behavioral crisis response, and helping clients move from crisis toward self-sufficiency.
