FUMC is thrilled to be part of the spread of God’s kingdom around the world. We are active in sending missionaries and supporting these missionaries with our money and with our prayers. Ocassionally, a small team from our church travels to another country to assist our missionaries in practical projects and evangelistic outreach. We encourage all of our people to respond to God’s call for laborers, whether it means that they move to a foreign country or live and minister in our own community.

Throughout the history of our church and the United Methodist faith, people like you have committed your unique passions, gifts, and abilities to extend God’s love, especially to “the least of these” (Matthew 25:31-46). The Book of Discipline teaches us that our mission as United Methodists is to proclaim the gospel and to welcome people into the body of Christ, to lead people to a commitment to God through Jesus Christ, to nurture them in Christian living by various means of grace, and to send persons into the world as agents of Jesus Christ.

The Mission Committee and church staff have worked together to develop this extensive Mission Booklet. You will find this to be a wonderful source of information on church, local, national, and international ministries and mission organizations.

We challenge you to prayerfully discern how you can serve and reach out to those in need.

Sincerely,

The Missions Committee
