A Small Church With a Big Mission.

Missions


 
     The leadership and membership of Fruitland First UMC is very aware of the charge given to us by Christ to witness and serve  each other, our community and our world. In keeping with this charge we have taken great effort to give in time and finances to needs, not only in our own community, but around  the nation and world.

     In 2006 we gave a great deal of financial support to the flood and hurricane victims through the United Methodist Board of Global Ministries UMCOR (United Methodist Committee On Relief).

     Also we have been at the forefront of helping to develop new prison ministry in Idaho through the Idaho Kairos chapter of Kairos International Prison Ministries.

     Several of our members are active as local hospice  volunteers, and Idaho Walk to Emmaus volunteers.   The Idaho Walk to Emmaus site can be found by clicking on the name.

     Our United Methodist Women chapter has been very active in providing support to many needs locally and around the world.

     Recently we have accepted our Bishop's challenge to make sure no one in our community goes hungry. We know this is an awesome task so we have begun forming disciple groups that are responsible for finding and caring for the less fortunate around us. We are also building a local hunger fund and we are cooperating with other churches in our area to provide for the hungry and cold.

In 2009 we will continue to look outside of our walls for those who are hurt, lonely, sick, or broken and provide Christ's love through our efforts. Ms. Anna Shimer, a missionary who was here with us presented her mission works in Peru last January is still in our prayer and needs your support in many ways.
