Wednesday, May 29

We're praying for our community following yesterday's severe early morning storms.
As many homes and businesses (including FUMCR) await restoration of electricity, the City of Richardson has cooling/charging centers open.
While our campus is closed, email is the best way to contact our staff.

Advent/Christmas Eve Offering 

The 2017 Advent & Christmas Eve Offering will support the following:

  •  Kafodzidzi Primary and Middle School in Ghana serves several hundred children and is in desperate need of repairs to remain functional.  This is the home school of Sam Asmah, FUMCR member and employee.
  •  Project Transformation utilizes the talents of college students in partnership with United Methodist churches to offer daily activities to children in low income neighborhoods.
  •  Network of Community Ministries is the emergency social service agency of Richardson assisting Richardson residents with rental and utility help, as well as providing food pantry and clothing closet items. 
  •  Skuinskloof Primary School in South Africa is a ministry of FUMCR.  We continue to send work teams to Africa to build and improve facilities at this school. 

  •  Go Camp is a North Texas Conference supported camp experience for children in urban and rural communities who may not have access to summer camps. FUMCR will host one of these camps in 2018.  It will be an opportunity for children in our community to have a camp experience that otherwise would not have such an opportunity.
