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 mission outreaches in Mexico, China, Peru and Nicaragua.

 Local Outreach activities include:

  • National Day of Prayer
  • Appreciation dinner for Los Alamos police, firefighters and their families
  • Aaron’s Lunch Program
  • Hot Chocolate & Cider Stand @ Los Alamos Light Parade

Global mission outreach  include:

  • Sending a team to assist the development of small water pumps in Nicaragua
  • Sending a team to Peru

FUMC Missions and Outreach is also looking forward at additional areas of need and outreach.  Two local concerns that are being considered are:

  • “Aaron’s Kids” – this ministry, entering its second year, provides free lunches to  needy Los Alamos High School students.  Soon, this ministry will also extend to needy students in the Middle School.
  • “Helping Hands” – FUMC Missions and Outreach is considering the viability of resurrecting this former FUMC outreach, which is designed to occasionally assist those in our church and community with disabilities that keep them from doing needed maintenance in and around their homes.

Anyone with a heart for helping others experience Christ’s love is welcome and encouraged to participate with us. Our goal is to help the local body of Christ become more aware and focused on missions an outreach.

We meet the 2nd Thursday of every month at 5:30pm for one hour in the FUMC library.
