$30 buys several cups of fancy coffee—or $30 invested in the Global Mission Fellows program transforms a young adult’s life. Global Mission Fellows, ages 20-30, serve in social justice ministries across the country or internationally. They work alongside community organizations on hunger and poverty, global health, migration, and education issues. FUMC partners with the GMF program, a ministry of The United Methodist Church. Annually in September, we have the opportunity to transform a life by giving $30—or whatever amount we choose—at the altar rail, in the offering plate, or at the church office.
The Global Mission Fellows Program of the General Board of Global Ministries is a 2-year mission service and educational opportunity for young adults, ages 20-30, to work in social justice ministries. Fellows from the United States and other countries leave their home communities, go through an extensive orientation, and work either in the United States or internationally. This graduate-level fellowship allows participants to address the root causes of oppression and alleviate human suffering alongside community organizations in a variety of issue areas, including public health, migration/immigration, education, and poverty.
During the month of September you can contribute at the altar rail, drop your gift in the offering plate, or send or bring your contribution to the church office. Make checks payable to FUMC and include a note stating that your contribution is for “GM Fellows.”
