It's part of our mission and in our DNA:
SERVE WITH CHRIST
We're excited to embark on a church-wide initiative, challenging each of us to explore what it means to serve in new and different ways at home, at work or school, in church, and in the community.
The Year of Service will encourage us to be intentional about looking past ourselves and joining with others to make a great impact, and we want you to join us!

My role is to bear witness to both the reality of suffering and the goodness of God.Keep Reading

A Culture of Service
January 21, 2020
The physical allure of this place isn’t why my family and I have decided to make FUMCR our church home. It’s because someone saved me a seat in choir rehearsal when I was brand new and didn’t know anyone. It’s because a Sunday school teacher made an extra effort to get to know my kids so they felt more comfortable going to a new classroom. It’s because a greeter in the balcony remembered our names and told us how happy she was to see us again.
