Missions & Outreach News

Mission work is woven into the fabric of our church.  Many of the groups, classes, organizations and age-related ministries are engaged in reaching out in the name of Christ.  In addition, our Missions Committee helps connect people from the congregation and the community to those most vulnerable and in need.  Our mission work includes opportunities locally to touch the lives of our neighbors, and globally to share the love of Christ across the globe.  There is a chance for everyone to participate through giving and hands-on ministry.  We are the hands of Christ!  Come, help make a difference!    

For additional information, please contact Rev. Ann McClellan at annm@fumc-cs.org, 719-471-8522, ext.214. If you would like to volunteer for any of our mission and outreach activities, please submit the Volunteer Sign-Up Form on this page.

The UMCOR kits are on their way to the people who need them!  A member of another Methodist church here in Colorado Springs offered to transport items for hygiene kits to be delivered to Sager Brown, the UMCOR depot in Louisiana.  You answered the call with great generosity!  Thank you for your donations!  We turned in the contents for 200 kits and $450 to buy more supplies at their destination.   With immense gratitude, we say a huge THANK YOU to you the people of FUMC.  There are so many people throughout the United States and the world who will receive these hygiene kits.  You have blessed more people that you know!  Through your donations, you have offered the grace of God to people..... with no strings attached.  Thank you for freely giving to so many people in need!

The “Food Pantry” mission focus for June is Westside CARES.

Westside CARES is a volunteer-driven interfaith organization that provides care and compassion to over 22,000 neighbors each year. Powered by their 21-member faith communities, more than 400 volunteers, dozens of community partners, and 1,000+ donors from every religious tradition, every income level, and every political stripe who agree on one central tenet: “we can, and should, do better for our neighbors”.

Thanks in large part to their dedicated staff and community partners, they have not missed a single day of service since the onset of the pandemic, and they have been able to expand programs in response to increasing community need. Specifically, Westside CARES has increased its pantry operations by 250% since the pandemic started. As other organizations were closing or suspending programs, Westside CARES stepped into crucial community gaps to help keep people housed and healthy.

When considering donations, please provide only unopened/unexpired packages of non-perishable FOOD items.

Westside CARES is requesting the following items:
cereal, canned vegetables, canned fruit, canned meats, canned chili/soup, canned beans, spaghetti sauce, dried pasta, boxed potatoes, packaged meals, macaroni and cheese, individual pudding/jello (non-refrigerated), small jars of peanut butter, jelly, crackers, small bags of nuts/snacks/cookies, and gluten-free/dairy-free items.

Feed My Starving Children Mission Project coming soon!!!

The Feed My Starving Children team has been working diligently on getting a another MobilePack here We are happy to announce it will be here
August 13 and 14th.

Starting in mid to late June we will begin registration for the volunteers who would like to come and do some hands-on mission work by packing manna packs for God’s most vulnerable children around the world. We will be following strict Covid protocol which includes wearing hairnets and masks at all times. There are a limited number of volunteer slots as we also have to observe social distancing so our shifts will be much smaller than they were in 2019. You will want to sign up early to make sure your slot is insured. You can sign up HERE.

 Please consider making a donation through the same website link. We encourage each person to do what they can. We are also asking all volunteers to bring some non-perishable items to the MobilePack as we are collecting items for the local food shelves during the MobilePack.

Until all are fed!
