FCBC offers various outreach opportunities for service. Each Thanksgiving, Church anniversary and Pastoral anniversary we feed thousands in the community with our Community Feeding Project.
Additionally, this year we launched the Harambee and Sankofa projects. Learn more about these projects below.
The Harambee Projects aim to mobilize FCBC members into sustainable ministry opportunities with the greater Harlem community. Harambee, a Swahili-derived word, means pulling together for a common purpose. These multifaceted service projects offer concrete alternative avenues for engaging and furthering the work of FCBC beyond the walls. Ideal for people interested in non-traditional ministry engagement, the Harambee Projects reimagine community involvement, ignite passion for people and lure believers into new depths discipleship.

The Sankofa Project is part of an on-going historical initiative started by Rev. Michael A. Walrond, Jr., Executive Pastor at the First Corinthian Baptist Church in Harlem, New York. Pastor Mike expressed a desire for the church congregants to explore their cultural and historical legacy, and so the Sankofa Project was born. In the Akan language, spoken in Ghana, Sankofa means “Reach back/Return and Get it,” so the Sankofa bird looks back to the past, taking what is good, while holding the egg of the future. The proverb regarding the Sankofa bird says: “It is not wrong to go back to get that which you have forgotten.”
