Community Service and Missions

Community Outreach Programs


Our church supports the Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts, the Holston Home for Children, Heifer International through donations to purchase animals for needy countries, and local MEDIC blood drives. We provide meeting space for TOPS Weight Management, Monroe County Homeless Coalition, Chota Community Health, and other local agencies.

Holiday Activities


Each year we host the Community Breakfast with Santa. Our church provides free Christmas gifts to needy seniors  through Home Instead. At Easter we sponsor the Community Easter Egg hunt with hot dogs, chips, cookies, an Easter egg hunt, the Easter Bunny and the story of Easter.  

Pumpkin Patch & Halloween


FUMC is known as the "Pumpkin Church" as we have over 800 children visit with us each year. They are read stories, pick out their pumpkin, and have a snack. Also on Halloween, we host a Trunk-R-Treat event. 

Serving Our Community Needs


Our creative ladies of the Passion Sisters make stuffed rabbits and donate to CASA  Monroe County as well as hats and blankets for Monroe County Maternity Center. We donate to the Back-to-School project. The Methodist Men and Fix-It Friars support building projects, like ramps for those in need.

Feeding our Community


Each Tuesday, FUMC coordinates with other area churches to serve or provide meals for the free Community supper. We host a Thanksgiving service as well as deliver a Thanksgiving meal to our law enforcement and firefighters. During the Annual Homeless Count FUMC hosts a Soup Kitchen for workers and those in need of a hot meal.

We have something for everyone!
