JUNE 18-24 2023

This summer FUMC Allen will be partnering with UM ARMY in Fredericksburg, Texas, for our Mission Trip. UM ARMY works with local churches, civic, and social groups to identify people of need to work on their homes. Projects are vast but historically UM ARMY projects can be demolition and teardown, replacing floors, walls, ceilings, sidings, roof, wheelchair ramps, painting, screens, windows, etc.  UM ARMY stays away from electrical and plumbing and does a great job of partnering the right teams to the right client, and the right project’s.

FUMC Allen will be staying with other youth groups at a designated Methodist church in Fredericksburg, Texas. A program team will guide us through the week with extra curricular events in the community and a worship team will also guide us spiritually.

Hero Hotline: Vacation Bible School

FUMC Allen

Ready for some fun with the ultimate hero team?

Cokesbury’s Hero Hotline VBS invites children to answer the call to serve God together. Join the Professor and Super Meer as young Heroes learn to strive for the things that bring peace and the things that build each other up as we are taught in Romans 14:19. Through stories in both the Old and New Testaments, this VBS opens kids’ eyes to the countless ways God provides for Bible Heroes through teams of supporting Bible Heroes who help make the mission possible through following Jesus, Helping Others, Working Together, Listening to God, and Showing Grace.

The $25 registration fee includes a T-shirt and four days of fun for rising kindergarteners through those entering grade 6.

Registration for the children is NOW OPEN! Click HERE to register.

Volunteer opportunities are available for youth and adults. Click HERE to learn more.

Puerto Lempira, Honduras

FUMC Allen is a partner with Send Hope, a mission program that serves the people of the Moskito Coast of Honduras. We collect school supplies, help package food for families served by Kids Against Hunger, and send mission teams to engage in hands-on service, such as cooking meals, feeding and caring for malnourished babies, helping with school work, helping with construction projects, or playing with and loving on the children at the House of Hope. We now have a chance to go and serve!
