Outreach

Outreach
FUMC provides many opportunities throughout the year to help those in need in
our community and around the world.
 
In conjunction with Heart and Hands Missions, our annual work trip to Philippi, West Virginia helps needy families in that area improve their lives by improving the houses they live in.
 
We also support such mission endeavors as:
  1. Angel Tree to help provide Christmas gifts to needy children in our area
  2. Blackburn Center
  3. Emergency response to local disasters
  4. Norwin Rotary Food Back Packs
  5. Operation Reindeer for the residents at Torrance Hospital
  6. “Race for Grace”, an annual walk to support the families of children with brain cancer

 

WENDELL’S VISION – Wendell Campbell was a key part of the Rick Simms Memorial Work Trip team.  Wendell had a vision to provide the same type of mission work as Rick Simms Memorial Trip but to those here in our community. Wendell passed away in 2020.  This along with the COVID-19 economic impact launched Wendell’s Vision.  In 2020 our first project was to build a ramp for a family with medical needs and limited economic resources.  Wendell’s vision is an ongoing local mission project.  For more information as to how to volunteer or how to request assistance, please click the pages below.
