FUMC Bristol is involved with many local missions and is actively involved with mission work in Haiti.
In addition to direct service, each Sunday our children help us to take a Feed the Hungry offering. Our offerings benefit our children’s home in Haiti, a variety of local missions as well as to support the Holston Conference Special Sundays:
Human Relations Day
(Sunday before the national observance of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday) strengthens United Methodist outreach to communities in the United States and Puerto Rico, encouraging social justice and work with at-risk youth.
(fourth Sunday in Lent) enables the United Methodist Committee on Relief to reach out through worldwide ministries of food, shelter, health and peace.
Native American Ministries Sunday
(third Sunday of Easter) nurtures mission with Native Americans and provides scholarships for United Methodist Native American seminarians.
Peace With Justice Sunday
(first Sunday after Pentecost) enables The United Methodist Church to have a voice in advocating for peace and justice through a broad spectrum of global programs.
World Communion Sunday
