Opportunities for Missions
Opportunities to contribute to the mission work of First United Methodist Church are abundant. These opportunities can include helping children, the homeless, the ill and the grieving. We considers it vital to our faith to be mission minded. We believe it is theologically and biblically based to reach beyond our walls into our community and beyond. Our mission participation includes financial support and hands-on involvement.
Ongoing hands-on opportunities for mission include:
Ozark Mission Project (OMP)
Red Cross Blood Drives
Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) School Supplies Collection
Amazing Grace Café
“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in.” — Matthew 25:35
On alternating Thursday nights, FUMC Conway and First Presbyterian Church are offering hot meals free of charge for those who need them. We are always in need of volunteers to help set up, serve and clean up.
Volunteer in Mission Trips
During the summer months we serve approximately 60 children a sack lunch two days a week. Volunteers make the sandwiches, put the sack lunches together and deliver the lunches to Brierwood Apartment Complex and the Conway Housing Authority. If you are interested, look for more information in April or May each year, or contact Kisha Bumpers at firstname.lastname@example.org.
