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!
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:
New Neighborhood Ministry
The Outreach, Hospitality & Mission (OHM) Teams continue to give our new neighbors a FUMCRO bag full of useful household items, church information, and an invitation to come visit us. The bags will be filled with the following items:
The OHM teams would gladly accept donations of the items (placed in the New Neighborhood container on the Giving Corner table), or funds to purchase them. If donating funds, please designate “New Neighbor” in the memo line or on the offering envelope. The estimated cost per bag is $7.00.
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.
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.
