FCUMC is an Intergenerational Church With a Vision: Scripture has always called one generation to pass the mantle of faith to the next. It was God working through Moses to command Israelites to teach their children of love and hope. In Psalms, you hear the insistent echo of how the people of God are to record their faith for the yet-born. Jesus was radically intentional about letting the children come to him. And of course, Paul had a clear focus on mentoring young and marginalized leaders.
Contributed food and toiletry donations in the Fountain City area through our Blessing Box and the Fountain City Ministry Center for food insecure individuals and families.
Touched countless lives seeking sobriety and support through Celebrate Recovery with 253 new individuals so far this year who have begun their journey of recovery.
Provided a loving, caring, and safe environment for children to learn and grow spiritually and emotionally in their faith.
Engaged in hands-on mission work by providing over 10K meals for suffering people both internationally and locally as we fight world hunger.
We want to ensure that the next generation of Christians who comes through Fountain City knows the power of Jesus in their lives, and that we continue to do a great job of caring for our parents’ and grandparents’ generations. We hope you will prayerfully consider how you can be part of this important effort that will help us keep a next generation mindset, dream big dreams, and say yes to how God is ready to work through each of us for the Kingdom.
