Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. - Hebrews 10:23 NIV

Employment Transition Ministry

Sundays, 11 am, Room 209

Our goal is to reduce the time of employment transition by networking with many local organizations and through introductions to local companies represented by the members of FUMCR. Employment Transition Ministry volunteers assist both members and referrals from the FUMCR community in their efforts to find employment, change careers, or return to the workplace.  


Career Jump-Start Ministry

Tuesdays, 6:30 - 8 pm, Ogden Fellowship Hall (north side of Sanctuary building) 

Our mission is to:
  •  Guide job seekers during their job search process by offering excellent informational and motivational speakers and programs;
  •  Provide opportunities to network; and
  •  Assist each member in utilizing their God-given talents and abilities to become a contributing member in our community.

Recharge your career skills with our practical seminars. Pizza is served and there is never a charge!
