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...

May's Rail Offering - Four Corners Native American Ministry

“FCNAM provides the churches with donated hymnals, VBS and Sunday school resources as well as some equipment, i.e chairs, pews etc. To be effective and for self-respect, our people like their church to look nice and fulfill what people "think" a church should look like. Our people also lack self-esteem so when their church looks nice, especially in light of the adversity between the traditional religion and Christianity. Our communities need hope, love and acceptance that is what the church and the gospel offers.” –advance.umcmission.org
