In 2022 we began our Blessing Box ministry, offering food and hygiene items to those who need an extra blessing. Every day the Blessing Box is stocked with about a dozen items that are free for anyone to take. You can donate by purchasing items and dropping them off at the church or by giving financially. We are always looking for people willing to refill the Blessing Box. To sign up for a week, email Christy.
Midwest Mission Iowa
In 2022, we opened our doors to help Midwest Mission Distribution Center establish a new location right here in Jefferson. What began as a few monthly events blossomed into MMDC moving into their own building at 219 N Chestnut St. in 2023. FUMC continues to partner with MMDC by serving at the distribution center and by housing mission groups that are serving at MMDC. To sign up to serve, visit the Midwest Mission website.
Action Resource Center (ARC) – Greene County Food Pantry
FUMC has always been a supporter of ARC and their mission to care for those experiencing food insecurity. Through serving, sending checks, and collecting items, we partner with them in mission every month. Our yearly Cereal Box Drop has collected hundreds of boxes of cereal to feed our hungry friends and neighbors.
Members of FUMC have a passion for mission and have gone on 12 mission trips since 2001 These groups have specialized in building and construction. If you would be interested in serving on a future mission team, email Sam.
