Current Mission Focus

For the month of September, we will be partnering with United Methodists Responding to Disaster (UMCOR) to collect materials for hygiene kits.  The United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) brings God’s hope, healing and renewal to people whose lives have been disrupted by war, conflict or natural disaster. UMCOR provides humanitarian relief and disaster response to people in more than 80 countries, including the United States.

Our Mission Partners

Local help for local families

We believe we’re called to Love Thy Neighborhood and we seek to love our neighbors well. We see approximately 20 families per month seeking financial and/or emotional assistance as they navigate the complexities of living in poverty in Central Florida. We are in need of community members interested in walking with families who are working their way out of poverty. If you’re interested or willing to help, let us know! info@fumcsanford.org
