You can change a life just by shopping

My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.
John 15:12 NIV


At Family Christian, shopping is giving.

We love carrying products that help you grow your faith and share it with others. And that's not all we love doing! We love giving back—and this giving isn't possible without YOU. You see, every time you shop with us, the earnings are donated to Christian causes around the world. Behind every purchase is a smile from someone in need, thankful for your generous giving.

WHEN YOU SHOP,
YOU GIVE.


Here's how we've changed lives since becoming nonprofit:

At our Gala in 2014, $33,034 was raised to support our Challenge in November 2014, helping rescue those enslaved in the sex trafficking industry.

Funding has been provided for the production and distribution of Widow Connection's "New Beginnings" radio spots. These spots direct traffic to the WC website to inform, encourage and offer assistance to widows with finances, emotions and grief. The objective of the website is to offer information that is practical in nature and biblically based. The radio spots are heard around the world on more than 1,200 media outlets.

  • Through these spots, thousands of widows’ lives have been touched, and 100 of them were trained in tailoring. Because of this training, 700 hundred dependent orphans are fed daily and 300 children are now in school because their widowed mothers learned to sew.

1,800 pairs of reading glasses purchased to donate to orphans and widows in need.
