 Serving Our Local Neighbors

The words of the hymn “Jesu, Jesu” ask Jesus to “fill us with your love, show us how to serve the neighbors we have from you”.  Loving our neighbor through service is primary in Fridley UMC’s ministry.  We serve in many ways:  

• The monthly Family Table meal
• Individual and group service at area organizations, such as those listed below
• Service as tutors and helpers at Stevenson school

• Helpers in our onsite day care, The Rainbow School
• Financial support to our United Methodist missions and to many other missions
• Support to people in need
• Donations of goods to various groups, including the Anoka County Jail



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!

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.

Meals on Wheels: Our congregation members volunteer to deliver meals to seniors and others in need.  The meals are prepared and packed at Unity Hospital.

Feed My Starving Children:
 This a non-profit Christian organization committed to feeding God’s starving children hungry in body and spirit. Children and adults hand-pack meals. 

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.
