  • Local Missions

    Our UMW unit regularly supports four local missions. Each circle is assigned a local mission, and they are rotated every two years so everyone has an opportunity to learn about each organization. We support each mission in various ways and keep abreast of needs and events by having a representative on each board.

    Bethlehem Center

    Since 1945, Dallas Bethlehem Center has provided the children of South Dallas with a nurturing environment that benefits the entire family structure by offering holistic services for each child's educational, physical, emotional, social, moral and spiritual needs. Their focus ranges from child development for ages 1-5, after-school and summer enrichment programs for ages 6-12 and a youth development program for ages 13-21. Learn More

    C.C. Young

    C.C. Young is a Methodist retirement center serving those in independent living to those in full care in Dallas overlooking White Rock Lake. We host birthday parties, make lap robes and shawls. We visit residents and provide Bingo gifts for them. We support different benefits throughout the year to provide services or enhancements to the facilities. Learn More

    Dallas Methodist Hospital

    Our unit supports Methodist Hospital throughout the year. Our mission focuses on infants and new mothers. We donate Halloween tray favors, layette sets, shot dolls and infant eye covers (for infants under lights for jaundice). We donate red Christmas stockings and knitted white hats for the Christmas babies to be wrapped in to go home. 

    Wesley Rankin Community Center

    Wesley Rankin is a community center serving West Dallas. Our unit supports this mission throughout the year with book donations for their library, donations for school supplies and gifts for the Christmas Store Program which allows parents to shop in a store with volunteer hours they have donated at their children's schools or other community programs. Wesley Rank holds an annual benfit which provides most of the annual funding for the community center. Learn More

  • Celebrations 

    Let FUMCR be the place for your next important celebration!

    The United Methodist Women of FUMCR will help with any celebration that you choose to have at the church campus.

    Receptions 
    Anniversaries 
    Birthday parties
    Graduation celebrations
    Class functions

    We will set up, serve and take care of replenishing the food and drinks during the event. And when it is time to clean up, we do that too!!

    Contact Nancy Rucker, 972.235.9931, our Celebration Coordinator, for information on how we can help you give a celebration and enjoy the party as well.

    Let your celebration be a gift to others!

    UMW members volunteer, and the money earned goes directly to fund ministries to women, children and youth. While you have a great celebration, you also contribute to the wonderful family missions for the United Methodist Church through United Methodist Women.
