• Emotional and spiritual support for parents and kids where it's ok to share successes or vent frustrations
• Resources to help with time management, budgeting and more through informative programs for parents
• A fun, safe place for your children while you take some personal growth time - free nursery for infants and toddlers by licensed child care providers; activities for kids, including recreation, arts & crafts and special projects; a quiet environment for school-age kids to do homework

After children graduate from high school, we rejoice with you. When in-person fellowship resumes, anyone who is not a parent of a K-12th grade child must have completed Ministry Safe training and have a valid certificate on file with FUMCR to attend. Should you or your adult child need support from FUMCR, please contact Rev. Pavielle Jenkins at 972.235.8385 for options beyond SPAN's limited resources.
Gifts of Money or Time
SPAN welcomes contributions for the monthly dinners and emergency needs. Donations may be made by mailing a check, written to FUMCR, and mailed to the church. Please designate SPAN on your donation.
Contact Hawana Townsley at 972.996.0145 or firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer to provide a meal. SPAN is a perfect one-time or recurring mission for a small group.
