A Place to Serve

Ministry_webThese programs nurture our church community and provide opportunities for our members to become involved in ministry.

Caring Ministries: provides meals for families after funerals. Madelyn Jones is the coordinator.

Children’s Summer Missions Week: hands on activities for our children. The children paint homes, feed the poor, visit our homebound, visit our mission agencies and spend the week in missions.

Church and Society: an international agency of The United Methodist Church. The group meets to discuss social issues of our day. Beebe McKinley is the coordinator.

Communion to Homebound: serves Communion to the homebound each month. Sharon Standifer is the coordinator.

Homebound Visitation: We have many members who visit our sick and homebound. There is always room for more volunteers. Lib Powell is the coordinator.

Hospital Visitation: When a FLUM person is in the hospital this team makes sure they are visited. Lucy Deason is the coordinator.

Love Stitchers: this ministry makes and sends prayer shawls to Dover, Delaware to families of fallen soldiers. They send 30 red, white and blue shawls a year. The knitters also give shawls to our sick and homebound, and to Hospice. Since 2006, this ministry has made and given away over 1000 garments and shawls. Flossie Conwell is the coordinator.

Missions with Melody: every fourth Sunday the children of the church learn about missions. We also have hands on activities each month. Ideas are welcomed for this time together.

Prayer Chain: our church prays for our sick and hurting. To join the prayer chain group, email the coordinator Max Shores.

Shining Lights: these volunteers send cards, flowers, provide meals and make phone calls to people who are homebound or sick.

Stephen Ministers: a specialized care team surrounding a particular need of a member. For example, if a church member is battling cancer and they need rides to the doctor, a team would be formed to meet the need. If you are interested in being trained for this ministry, please let the church office know.

Trunk or Treat Outreach: the youth each year, with the help of the congregation, provide a safe place for the children of FLUM to trick or treat. The children can trick or treat the decorated cars in our parking lot instead of homes.

United Methodist Women: the women of our church are very active in global ministry through the UMW. There are three groups in our church where women can join the fellowship to serve God and serve the world.

Weekday Kids Ministry: the church has a wonderful daycare and four year old kindergarten for children. We provide scholarships for children who are in need of a safe place to spend the day. Velma Williams is the director.

Welcome Center Receptionist: volunteers help people who enter or call the church. The volunteers also provide a safety net for our Weekday Kids ministry. Laura Hunter is the church’s volunteer coordinator.

Worship CD’s to Homebound: worship CDs are made each week then delivered to our homebound. Lib Powell is the coordinator.

There are also opportunities to serve others in the many Outreach Activities in which FLUM is involved.
