FUMC Missions Ministry
Fill-A-Box is a way to support organizations in our community with needed material goods.
We are taking a break over the month of June. Watch for details of our next Fill-A-Box!
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.
A HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who helped pack and deliver backpacks this school year. Your help means the world to the students and teachers in the VCSC. The students are fed and ready to learn on Monday mornings because you make a difference by caring about them.
We started the school year doing 165 backpacks of weekend food and finished the year doing 222.
Next school year Elaine Snyder and Ann Hedde will be coordinating this ministry.
Your help means the world to us!
We are currently on break until
the 2017-2018 school year begins.
