If you're a behind the scenes person, we have a place for you. If you're a people person, we have a place for you too. If you are busy and only have time to make a donation...don't worry! We have a place for you as well.
An FUMC Missions Ministry
Fill-A-Box is a way to support organizations in our community with needed material goods.
For the month of September we will continue to collect for the
KNOX COUNTY HUMANE SOCIETY AND PET PORT
Bring in dog & cat food, cat litter, dog toys, paper towels, etc and place them in the collection boxes in the sanctuary.
(Call or email the church office for a complete list of each organization.)
Thank you on behalf of the Mission's Team for your generous support!
Loaves & Fishes
Here at FUMC, we believe in miracles! We believe that together we can help others who are temporarily in need of assistance and can benefit from our ministry.
That is why we team up with other area churches and organizations to help feed those in need. Several times a year, our volunteers will gather to cook a full meal. They then "step out of the boat" and take that meal to Bowman Terrace and serve the hungry of our community.
Some volunteers choose to just bring in food they make at home. Some choose to only cook or only serve. Whatever your skill level, you're generosity is welcome here!
If you are interested in being a part of this wonderfully fulfilling ministry, please contact the church office for times and information.
Backpacks of love
Many children in our community are in need. They do not have enough food at home and rely on their school lunches to fill them up. FUMC has teamed up with others in the area to alleviate the hunger pangs. This ministry packs backpacks full of healthy food and love for children who would otherwise not have enough food over the weekends. Anyone is welcome (and encouraged) to help.
We would love to have your help... many hands make light work! It usually takes about 1 and a half hours to pack and we enjoy hanging out and having fun while serving! 😍
September Packing Dates:
21 & 28
