We're young, we're old. We're far from perfect and still learning to live more like Jesus. We believe the Lord has brought us together to be more and do more than we can alone. We'd love to share everything we know with you.

This Month on the Extra Mile...

September Rail Offering- Emergency Fund

Every month we are given the opportunity to reach out further than we could alone.

100% of this month's Rail Offering will go to the Emergency Fund ministry. 

The Emergency Fund Ministry helps support our local community when in dire need. This fund has helped friends and strangers with gas for their vehicle, full or partial utility payments, and other basic needs. We never know when a need will arise but this fund allows FUMCSB to be part of helping somone at that time. 

If you choose to give, please designate your gift here online or in church as "October's Rail Offering" or "Emergency Fund". Thank you and God bless.
