Where are you leaving His fingerprints?
We have an ongoing collection of non-perishable food items that are given to the local Food Banks at Helps Outreach, Grace Place for Children and Families, and St. Mathew’s House. This food helps many in our community who struggle to put food on the table for themselves and their families. The Grocery Cart is in the Narthex waiting to be filled with your contributions. We also try to help with local food drive events in Naples.
On a local and very personal level, individuals come to the church seeking help and support when times and situations bring about hardships in their lives. Jobs are lost, illness occurs, children have needs – so they ask for help from God’s people. This fund allows our pastors to deal directly with these folks with monies given for that very purpose. To bring real and quick relief to genuine needs results in all being blessed and God being glorified.
The Florida United Methodist Children’s Home is a diverse ministry that includes residential care, therapeutic care, foster care, emergency shelter care, independent living assistance, and a community child care center. One campus has 15 residences which can house 8 children (5-17) and two house parents each. The second campus is a youth ranch in northern Florida. Every fifth Sunday we take a collection for the Children's Home.
To demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way to needy children around the world, and together with the local church worldwide, to share the Good News of Jesus Christ, just fill a shoe box with gifts for a child. Last year 8 million children across the world received shoe boxes. Children in over 130 countries have received shoe boxes since 1993.
