Mission Opportunities

Benevolence Offerings

Resources for food, clothing, shelter, and transportation needs in emergency situations are provided for the needy persons who come to our church office seeking help. This is not a budgeted item, and individual donations are necessary for this specific fund in order to keep it operational. All funds are distributed through a voucher system under the supervision of the pastor. During the seasons of Christmas and Easter, we receive special offerings that are distributed by our pastors to local agencies and individuals in need. You can also contribute to the “Pastor’s Benevolent Fund” (used in the same manner) anytime throughout the year.

Mission Trips

FUMC usually takes several mission trips a year. Some are international and others are quite close. We have served in Haiti, Nicaragua, Mexico, Belize, and the Gulf Coast. We are always open to new opportunities for trips.

Monday Mission Group

Every month, a group of volunteers travel to local mission sites such as RIFA, Birth Choice, and Reelfoot Rural Ministries for service projects, fellowship, and lunch. This is a wonderful opportunity to be a part of smaller projects such as sorting clothes, cleaning, delivering toys and food, and much more.
