Oatmeal and Spaghetti

FUMCRO has volunteered to donate oatmeal and spaghetti on an ongoing basis to North Ellis County Outreach (NECO). The next time you are at the grocery store, please remember to pick up extra spaghetti and oatmeal for FUMCRO’s donation to NECO. Our support of these donations will enable the Outreach center to continue work and help in our community. They are also currently in need of kid friendly foods: jelly, SpaghettiO’s or microwaveable foods. Thank you for your generosity!

Card Ministry

Was there someone missing from their usual pew on Sunday morning? Was someone absent from Wednesday activities, UMW Circle, UMM, Youth or Sunday School? Is there someone you are praying for daily?  The UMW Circle of Hearts ‘n’ Hands has a card ministry and invites you to participate. Cards will be available at the Giving Corner Table for you to use to send to those you are missing, praying for, thinking of, and wishing well.  There is a church directory with the cards so you can address the envelope. You may take it and mail it, or leave it in for the Circle to mail for you.  The Circle will make cards and purchase cards. If you have cards to donate, we will gladly accept them.   Let’s build our loving community!

ROISD Kids Mission Opportunity

The Missions Committee continues to collect “kid-friendly” snacks and foods for ROISD kids who may not have enough to eat during the times when they are not in school (weekends, holidays, etc.) and school lunches are not available to them. Please place your donations in the ROISD bucket at the Giving Corner (table just outside the sanctuary).  Some suggestions are:

  • Easy open food/snack items such as fruit cups, applesauce cups, granola bars, trail mix, protein bars or breakfast bars
  • Microwave oatmeal, soup, macaroni & cheese, or pastas
  • Vienna sausages
  • Individual tuna packets, tuna salad or chicken salad
  • Individual cracker packs

Hands For Christ

Hands for Christ is a program of First United Methodist Church of Red Oak that helps our neighbors in the community. Volunteers offer assistance with many varied tasks. We can help with minor home maintenance and repairs, local transportation, home office tasks, lawn care, and housekeeping. 
Major workdays in the spring are the 3rd Saturday of April and May. The fall workdays are the 1st Saturday in September, October, and November. Throughout the year, other dates may be available by contacting the program coordinator through the church office or online at FUMCRO.ORG. 
Volunteers of all ages and abilities are encouraged to come serve. On designated workdays, meet at the church at 7:30 am before we head to worksites. Stay as long as you can or until the job is complete. There is always something for everyone to do! The primary objectives of this ministry are to build relationships and share the love of Christ

If you are looking for ways to get involved and serve your neighbors, we'd love to have you! All skill levels are welcomed. For more information, to request assistance, or to volunteer, contact the program coordinator by calling the church office at 972-617-9100.
