We've Been Cleaning!

Carol and Cathy have sorted through items we’ve used in Sunday School or other
activities at FCUMC. Thank you to all who have donated these items over the years.
They were well-loved. However, to find more gathering space for meetings, we’ve
cleaned and organized two former classrooms.

Stop by M-2 (the room next to the sanctuary, across from the office) to see if there are items that you’d like to “rehome!” We especially encourage early childhood
teachers and parents of young children to check out the items.

Our preschool, Sunday school teachers and nursery attendant have already had
the opportunity to take the items… and now it’s YOUR time!

Native American Ministries

Consider giving to the UMC special offering for Native American Ministries on
Sunday, April 14.
Half of the funds collected on this Special Sunday remain in our Annual Conference
to develop and strengthen Native American ministries. Twenty-five percent of the
donations received fund scholarships designated scholarships for Native Americans
attending United Methodist schools of theology.
The final twenty-five percent of the donations collected are used to create
beneficial programs. These funds allow the UMC to partners with existing native
ministries to develop new programs on behalf of Native Americans. Some of those
efforts include mentoring programs, peer support systems, funding for economic
development projects, and restoring traditional and historic ways that bring forth
new leaders for Native American communities.
As with any donations for our church ministries, you can donate by cash/check on
Sunday morning or mailing it to the church office. You may also use a bank account
or credit card donation on our website GIVE page: https://fairwoodumc.org/give/
