And the king will answer them, “Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.” - Matthew 25:40

We look forward to resuming our usual programs in person as soon as possible!
As we work through the COVID-19 situation we are meeting virtually and continuing to provide support. Please reach out to us via this group or email span.fumcr@gmail.com so we can update you for meetings and any other fellowship plans.
