Serving Our Local Neighbors
• The monthly Family Table meal
Monthly Focus - (January 2015)
SIMPSON HOUSING SERVICES
On this chilly January evening, there are 14,000 people who are experiencing homelessness in Minnesota. The nine shelters in the Twin Cities are filled to capacity most nights and 3,000 children struggle in school because of their current housing situation.
To end homelessness in our community we need to work together to solve the problem. Simpson Housing Services exists because of support given by people who care. We invite you to be a part of the solution to end homelessness in our community by making a gift to Simpson Housing Services. This month let’s give generously to end homelessness one person, family, and child at a time.
Please give generously. Your Mission Commission
To contribute: Write a check payable to Fridley United Methodist Church. Write Simpson Housing Services 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.
