Methodist founder, John Wesley said, “I look upon all the world as my parish.” Wesley reminded us that we are called to step out of our little corner of the world to spread the good news, transform hopelessness into hope and help God’s children wherever they may be. “I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.” Matthew 25:35-36 (NRSV). Our contributions not only benefit the programs and ministries of our local church, but also have regional, national and international impact through our connectional giving system. The power of our collective giving enables us to spread the love of Jesus, and support UMC programs around the world. When we give generously, our gifts do wonderful, life-changing things in the name of Jesus Christ. Each Sunday, FUMC has food and clothing barrel in the Narthex for collect. Our volunteers deliver to Inter-Faith Ministries each month.
Your giving is an act of worship and makes possible the ministry of changing lives,
transforming communities and renewing the church. In addition to offerings given
through the offering plate, there are currently three ways to give:
Each Sunday you may drop your donation in the offering plate or stop by the church office.
Monday - Friday 9:00 am to 4:00 pm
Those of you who are currently using on-line bill paying services will be pleased to hear that we have launched a new E-Giving service from Vanco Services.
