Given the unusual past 12 months, this year’s “Second Mile” Easter Offering is more important now than ever before.
With this year’s Lent theme, Darkest Before Dawn, we are providing you the opportunity to bring the light of new hope to three life-changing ministries that operate within our own sacred walls as well as support other ministries that are community driven. With your generous support this year, we can bring the light and warmth of God’s love to:
First Street Methodist Mission, providing emergency food, clothing, infant formula and limited financial assistance at an all-time high due to COVID-19 and doing it with respect and compassion for all who are served
Methodist Justice Ministry, also experiencing an extreme high volume caseload as they protect children and women from domestic violence, abuse, and neglect and making it possible for them to rebuild new lives free from unimaginable struggles while breaking the cycle of abuse.
Alzheimer’s and Dementia Support Ministry, offering specialized dementia care training and education for individuals, families, and caregivers who are dealing with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
Community Outreach, part of First Church’s DNA as we take our “hands and feet” out into the community in support of worthwhile missions that are addressing the needs of those who are vulnerable. Your generosity allows us to join with others in projects that are community driven such as Habitat for Humanity, Presbyterian Night Shelter, and Cowtown Brush-Up.
You can make your 2021 Easter Offering by check (please make check payable to FUMCFW and put 2021 Easter Offering in the memo line) and mail it, drop it by the Main Church Office, or put it in the offering boxes now located in the Sanctuary before or after worship. You can also make this offering online at fumcfw.org/givenow (please choose Easter Offering from the drop-down menu).
Regardless of how you choose to give, please know that these ministries depend upon and deeply appreciate your prayers and support for the vital work they do on behalf of our faith community.
As always, we value and appreciate each and every one of you for all you do for our church and its ministries.
Grace and Peace,
Rev. Lance Marshall
