Serving Our Local Neighbors

Monthly Focus - (October 2015)
Midwest Mission Distribution Center
Our mission focus for October is the Midwest Mission Distribution Center (“MMDC”). MMDC is part of the UMCOR Relief Supply Network and their mission is to reach out to neighbors both locally, nationally and internationally. Monetary donations are particularly important to MMDC as it allows them to purchase supplies in bulk – getting supplies 3xs cheaper than by purchasing those same items in a local store. The supplies are then used to create “kits” that are distributed to areas in need. For example, in July of this year, over 2,000 School Kits were sent to communities within the U.S. – helping children in need get a better start to the school year. Please consider making a monetary donation to MMDC to support this ongoing mission work. Every donation is important.
Please use the mission offering envelopes in the pews to continue to support this very important work.
To contribute: Write a check payable to Fridley United Methodist Church. Write MMDC on the memo line, or go to our online giving webpage.

Ongoing Service to Our Neighbors
In addition to contribution to many United Methodist projects, both in Minnesota and globally, the congregation regularly supports local outreach needs.
Some organizations that receive support and offerings from our members:
Loaves and Fishes: Volunteers from Fridley United Methodist Church serve a hot meal once a month (the second Monday of each month) at one of the ten area sites for Loaves and Fishes.
Serve Globally: Service in missions located beyond Minnesota, nationally, or internationally.
Imagine No Malaria; The people of The United Methodist Church, a world of people unified in the fight against a needless killer. It's time we all join hands with Africa, on a personal mission to heal. Imagine No Malaria and then make it real. Sustaining life. One person at a time. One month at a time.
Pray: God can do more than we can ever imagine.
Know: The people of the United Methodist Church have embraced this cause. You can change a life.
Act: Get involved. A pledge to Imagine No Malaria of just $28 per month will change 100 lives.
