Meals on Wheels
FUMC has staffed a Meals on Wheels delivery route for many years. A wonderful group of 40+ members and friends volunteer for this local mission. We go out in teams of two; each team delivers one day a month. Time commitment is about 1½ hours (10:30am-12noon, M-F). We currently need volunteers who can help on a regular basis or as a substitute when it fits your schedule. Registration and training are required and will be provided.
Melrose/Fairmont Park Elementary Ministry
We support our local schools with reading programs, mentorships, fundraisers, teacher support, prayer, food, and acts of loving kindness. Please contact us if you are interested in serving others at our local elementary schools.
Our Mission is to provide five meals per month at St Vincent de Paul Homeless Shelter on the 1st Monday, 1st Tuesday, 2nd Tuesday, 2nd Wednesday, and 4th Monday of each month. A team of 5 to 7 cooks prepare the meals in our church kitchen. A team of 7 – 11 individuals serve the meals to between 150 – 200 people each night.
