Upcoming Events & Activities

 

FFC International Event: March 27-29, 2019

This event is scheduled immediately prior to the Hume Lake Firefighter’s Retreat to allow those traveling from great distances to attend both. This is a more intimate time to get to meet others in FFC from across the nation or around the world. This years speaker is Phil Scott from Northern Ireland. There are plenty activities, including the Ultimate Frisbee competition, the very popular Woman’s Tea, and free time to visit or relax. The extra two days prior to the Hume Lake Firefighter's Retreat really makes it an extended weekend getaway. Contact Hume Lake Christian Camps at (800) 965-4863 or (559) 305-7770 to register.

 

Hume Lake Firefighter’s Retreat: March 29-31, 2019

This is FFC’s biggest event of the year. Hume Lake Christian Camps, located in the beautiful Kings Canyon National Forest is probably the finest Christian Camp in the world. FFC has partnered with Hume since the late 1970’s and has enjoyed the worship, teaching, and activities (not to mention the outstanding food) that Hume has packaged into their camp. This year’s speaker is Fernando Villicana, a retired firefighter from Los Angles City Fire Department, and pastor at Firehouse Church in Brea, California. This retreat often sells out fast, but put your name on the waiting list anyway. It seems that private cabins always seem to come available as the need arises. Contact Hume Lake Christian Camps at (800) 965-4863 or (559) 305-7770 to register. For those traveling from out-of-state, or Internationally, contact Pat Stilson at midslope@icloud for assistance in registration and housing.

 

Uganda 2018: October 19 through November 2, 2018

This will be FFC Northern Ireland’s third mission trip to Uganda. They have established a good relationship with Ty Cariad, a home and school for orphans, and have reached out to Uganda Fire Service personnel around this home. This year they plan to reach out to the Mbarara Region firefighters. They also plan on doing projects at the orphanage and spending time with the kids.

Philippines Training Trip: January 17-27, 2019

This will be our fourth Training Team sent to the Philippines. We have an excellent relationship with the Bureau of Fire Protection and a very active FFC Philippine Chapter who administrates all our trips. The door is wide open for ministry and all of these trips have been hugely successful. If you would like to be part of the next team to the Philippines, contact Pat Stilson at midslope@icloud.com
