  • Mission of the Month

    This month we welcome a new recipient for our Mission of the Month program. Though you may have heard about this program, there is a lot more to learn about the work they do. Big Brothers Big Sisters of East Central Wisconsin (BBBS of ECW) is a local non-profit youth mentoring organization. Their mission is to create and support one to one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth. The organization serves Outagamie, Waupaca, Winnebago, and Calumet counties. BBBS of ECW currently has 250 matches, but 98 youth are on the waiting list. Youth are between the ages of 6 to 18 and come from a variety of backgrounds. There is a plethora of positive outcomes that stem from having a mentor. Youth in the program improve in self-confidence, build better relationships, avoid risky behaviors, and increase their academic performance.

    Your gifts of the items below would be a tremendous help: Kleenex, Toilet paper, Napkins, Paper Towel, Paper plates, Dish soap, Sponges, Dish cloths, Magic Erasers, Disinfectant wipes, Kitchen garbage bags, Baggies: sandwich, snack, freezer, storage, Light bulbs, Ant Traps, Band aids.

    If you prefer to make a monetary donation, please send check to the church office and indicate “June  M.O.M.” in the memo line and dropped off in the church office. Monetary donations will be used to purchase requested items. All donations can be placed in the M.O.M. wooden box in the hallway by the Wesley Room. Thank you for your continued support.

  • Hands-On Ministry Opportunities

    Are you looking for ways to live out your faith by serving those in need in our local community? Does your employer offer time-off to participate in volunteer activities? Each month, First Church will provide opportunities for anyone to participate in hands-on volunteering opportunities throughout our local community.

    Opportunities to volunteer for Ruby’s Pantry will be the first Tuesday of each month at First English Lutheran. Be sure to enter Appleton, WI as your primary location, and indicate that you are part of a First United Methodist Church group, with Donna Frick as Contact Person. The volunteer coordinator from First English will be in contact to confirm your participation.

  • Prayer Request

    Our Befriender Ministry exists to pray with you and for you, and is honored to lift your concerns and joys to God in total confidence and without judgment.
     
    “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”    Philippians 4:6-7
