United Methodist Women (UMW) raise money through an annual bazaar to help support local missions.
Food Sharing: Bring your Food Shelf items and place them in the shopping cart in the narthex. We are a drop-off site and regularly bring food to the Food Shelf. All items must be non-perishable (cans of soup, vegetables, boxes of cereal, muffin mixes, etc). This is an easy way to help our community members.
Lake Superior Elementary School Partnership: Lake Superior Elementary School is located in rural Superior, Wisconsin, an area without a neighborhood. Mentors from FUMC meet with students to read a book, play a game of basketball or cribbage, or talk about a favorite book or event in their lives. Church members have been generous in giving school supplies and backpacks, snow pants, jackets, and mittens, and underwear, shoes, and sweaters.
Health Ministry: Supported by parish nurse Linda Wiig, the Health Ministry at FUMC supports the journey toward wholeness in the relationship of body, mind, and spirit. One favorite weekly ministry is the Faithfully Fit class at 9am Thursdays; another is communion for the homebound.
Prayer Chain prays as requested for church members, their families, and others who seek God's healing and understanding love. To request a prayer, contact the parish nurse.
Care Team visits and shares the comfort of the Christian faith with those in homes, nursing centers, and hospitals through listening, talking, and praying. The Congregational Care ministry also provides meals at times of emergencies and loss.
