Monthly Focus - (July 2015)
July Mission – Emma Norton Services
Our Mission Focus for the month of July is EMMA NORTON SERVICES. Most of us have been very blessed in our lives. We often don’t know the path our neighbors walk, the challenges they face struggling to make it from one day to the next. Emma Norton Services combats poverty in our communities – serving women, children and families who are homeless or experiencing the life challenges of mental disabilities or chemical dependency. They provide housing and other basic needs to these individuals and families—helping them navigate the stepping stones needed to improve their lives and help them gain independence.
FUMC has been active with this mission for a many years. We are asking that you continue to support this work through your generous contributions. Please use the mission offering envelopes in the pew to make a mission offering. As we have been blessed, let us share our blessings with others.
To contribute: Write a check payable to Fridley United Methodist Church. Write Emma Norton 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.
