First United Methodist Church is very involved in missions both locally and abroad. Some of our involvement includes:
THE LIGHTHOUSE FOUNDATION: Church members serve on the Board of Directors for this Corinth-area outreach ministry. A portion of our missions budget, and direct contributions of our members, help financially. An FUMC family “work night” in December helps in preparations for the annual Christmas Toy Drive.
THE A.M.E.N. FOOD PANTRY: In cooperation with other churches, FUMC members serve on the Board of Directors and contribute numerous volunteer hours. FUMC, along with individual donations, supports this ministry with a financial commitment. An annual “Push for Peanut Butter” campaign provides the pantry with much needed Peanut Butter.
BOYS AND GIRLS CLUB: The Corinth chapter of the Boys and Girls Club is supported by FUMC through members who serve in leadership and tutoring positions. The children of the club are encouraged to participate in FUMC’s summer Vacation Bible School.
HABITAT FOR HUMANITY: Church members serve on the local chapter of the Board of Directors and provide leadership, financial aid, and volunteer hours for local housing projects.
TORNADO RELIEF: Volunteers from FUMC have given a day or more cleaning up after devastating tornados in Mississippi and Tennessee. These volunteers have provided man-hours to clean up debris and deliver paper supplies, Coke products, and water donated by Corinth-area businesses.
GIRDWOOD, ALASKA: FUMC’s support of Reverend Jim Doepkin and family in their ministry in Girwood, Alaska, continues to grow. Our hopes are to send a team to Alaska to help with the building project.
MISSION CORINTH: Church members come together as needed to help with local clean-up, construction, renovation and various other projects for church members and or community members.
Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations… Matthew 28:19
