Serving Our Local Neighbors
• The monthly Family Table meal
Monthly Focus - (August, 2014)
For our August Mission, we support the Seed Program
On June 2nd we were privileged to have Lyndy Zabel visit our church to tell about his trip to Laos, Viet Nam and Thailand, where the UM Church is being cultivated and is growing.
We were excited to hear about the Seed Program in Laos, a very poor country. This program helps women earn a living through training them in various occupations, such as vegetable farming, animal raising and crafts making. The UM church also provides “seed” money, and project management. After a woman has become successful, a part of the profit goes to help another woman start her business, and also a portion is given to the church. The financial goal for this exceptional program is $20,000. Your prayers and support are greatly appreciated!
To contribute: Write a check payable to Fridley United Methodist Church. Write Seed Program 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.
