Serving Our Local Neighbors
• The monthly Family Table meal
Monthly Focus - (December, 2014)
Gordon and Ardell Graner, the missionaries we support, recently paid us a visit and brought us up-to-date on their activities in this relatively new assignment in the Dominican Republic. Gordon is working with the local community on a water purification project to bring clean water to the people who would otherwise have to buy it bottled or drink it polluted. Ardell is working with the local church to help members write their own curriculum and devotions. FUMC has had a covenant relationship for over 20 years with the Graners, and they are very appreciative of our support.
Habitat for Humanity is the second recipient of our Advent offering. Providing permanent housing for people is one of the best ways of providing a stable environment for families to thrive. This is not a “give-away” program. Families who are the recipients of these homes invest their own labor and money, but are subsidized by this vital program.
Please give generously. Your Mission Commission

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.
