  • Mission of the Month

    The January MOM is the Blessing Box. It has truly been a “blessing” for the homeless and less fortunate in our community. It is filled DAILY with basic food items and small personal hygiene items. Through church and community members, we have been able to sustain the Blessing Box. Recipients have expressed their gratitude and are thankful for the food and essentials provided. We need your help! Please donate individual serving items i.e. canned goods with flip top lids, small personal hygiene products, hand warmers, or monetary donations so we can purchase needed items. Thank you for your support.

    Special needs this time of year are mittens/gloves. Also, if you have left-over fleece, you can make scarves, at least 10 x 48-50. Thanks for all your contributions!

  • 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.

    Volunteer for Ruby's Pantry

    Jake’s Network of Hope (formerly Jake’s Diapers) distributes personal care products as well as product donations from their corporate partners to various non-profit organizations throughout NE Wisconsin. We will have a team of volunteers repackaging personal care products and/or product donations at Jake’s Network of Hope (2396 Industrial Dr. in Neenah) on Thursday, February 16th from 6:00-8:00pm. Sign-up deadline is February 9th.

  • 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
