We are called as Disciples of Jesus Christ to LOVE GOD, LOVE OTHERS, and SERVE THE WORLD. We are called to serve and witness to God’s love “in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria and to the ends of the earth.” (Acts 1:8)


We are heart broken for our brothers and sisters in Texas, Florida and Virginia devastated by the recent hurricanes.  Three ways we can help here at FUMC

1.  PRAY

2.  Prepare UMCOR Flood Relief Buckets (Email UMM Point of Contact, Mark: )

3.  Volunteer for upcoming UM Volunteers in Mission trips in VA Beach to assist with recovery from Hurricane Matthew.   (Email UMM Point of Contact, Mark: )
