“For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
— Matthew 6:21
Here at FUMCFW, we are certainly feeling the love. The philanthropic spirit of our congregation provides the heartbeat that brings our ministries and mission to life. On a daily basis and in countless ways, you are honoring God, and lives are being transformed. Together we are creating a caring faith community where:
• A family with a special needs child found a warm welcome in our Children’s Ministries;
• A young woman who just by happenchance attended the Ash Wednesday service that ignited a desire to go deeper into the Word found a Lenten Bible Study; and
• A longtime member found new passion for worship and honoring God through the beautiful singing of Choral Union.
You are also very willing to step up when called upon to take our ministries outside of our church walls. Thank you for your outpouring of generosity through your “second mile” special offerings! As a result of the Christmas and Easter offerings, along with the weekly dollar bill offering plate contributions, over $80,000 has been raised just in the last 6 months that will immediately impact FUMCFW Compassion & Justice Ministries.
Your gift, along with other designated specific donations, is being utilized in support of programs for local children and adults at First Street Methodist Mission, the Methodist Justice Ministry, and United Community Centers’ Summer Campership Program. Your gift also has a global impact by providing scholarships and school uniforms to Kenyan youth who do not have family funding, and by supporting transformational ministries in Costa Rica.
Again, thank you for your generosity that allows us to serve others within our church walls and out in the world.
