Is God calling you to serve others? Every month on the 2nd Tuesday a group of compassionate people meet at the church at 1:30PM to commute together to North End Soup Kitchen at 735 E Stewart Ave. The love of Jesus Christ is shared by preparing & serving the evening meal to the 40-100 people, who are either homeless or experiencing food shortages in their households. If you would like to participate in this mission, even just once, get in touch with FIAT leader, Kay Romoslawski by contacting the FUMC Church Office.
TRUNK OR TREAT
Join us on October 31st from 6:00 PM until 9:00 PM for our annual Trunk or Treat event. Trunk or Treat is held at our church parking lot and offers a safe environment for young children to collect candy from our collection of "characters" handing out the candy from the trunks of their specially decorated cars.
It's a free event and open to the entire community !!
We are honored to join over twenty five congregations in the Genesee County area to provide temporary shelter and meals for families who are experiencing a financial crisis. Over 70 servants are needed to assist during host week which occurs four times a year. While with Family Promise, families work with the director and other staff at the Day Center to create a plan that will make it possible for them to return to living independently. More information about the program is available at familypromiseofgeneseecounty.org. To help serve during Flushing United Methodist Church host week, call the church office at 659-5172.
Since 1993, more than 100 million boys and girls in over 130 countries have experienced God's love through the power of simple shoe boxes from Operation Christmas Child. Flushing United Methodist Church partners with Samaritans Purse to deliver the gifts & share the life changing good news of Jesus Christ. Boxes will be collected November 2014.
