Missions & Outreach
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
Mission Work Area
4th Monday of each month, 7 pm, Ogden Fellowship Hall
New members are always welcome to be a part of this group!
Members plan and coordinate all mission activities of FUMCR. Major initiatives:
• International Christmas Market offers unique, fair-trade items and shares of non-profits each November. All money spent goes beyond FUMCR.
• Cookie Caper asks people to donate and buy homemade cookies each spring. Proceeds are used to purchase workcamp supplies.
• Habitat Build constructs one house over 10 Saturdays each spring in cooperation with Richardson Area Interfaith Habitat for Humanity member congregations.
• Fundraising lunches provide money for workcamp supplies.
• Workcamps address local, national, and international construction/maintenance needs due to natural disasters and poverty.
FUMCR has covenant relationships with six United Methodist missionaries, meaning we provide salary support, and financial partnerships with two churches.
