About Missions & Outreach

The FUMC Missions and Outreach Committee supports the efforts of our church family in sharing Christ’s love in our community and throughout the world.  We organize activities to serve those in need.  We financially support ministry through gifts to charitable organizations, missionaries, and to help cover expenses for those in our church family who desire to participate in Christian service opportunities.  We lift up in prayer the concerns of those involved in and supported by our church. Our outreach activities include several local, state and national organizations as well as supporting 5 missionaries world wide.

 

January we are collecting items for the homeless.

 

Our church will be collecting items for the homeless from now until January 31.

We will then pack them into swag bags (bags with cords to enable carrying them). The bags will be available for church members to carry in their cars, to hand out to homeless people. We will have different bags for women and men.  Bags which have a piece of yarn tied to the top designate women’s bags. Since we don’t normally see a lot of homeless women around here, so you won’t need very many of those.

Any leftover bags will go to shelters.

We will collect non-perishable food items; warm hats, gloves and socks; and  hygiene items. Boxes for donations will be in the lobby of the church. If you come when the church is closed you can put them in the blue bin in front of the church. Suggested items listed below:

Granola Bars      Power Bars     Fruit Bars    Mixed Nuts

Spam/Canned Meat with pop tops or plastic containers ( No can openers needed)

Plastic spoons     Fruit Cups with pop tops/plastic cups

Toothpaste      Toothbrushes     Soap     Travel Shampoos     Personal Wipes     Toilet Paper
