Throughout the year, First United Methodist Church of Longview provides opportunities to put faith into action through mission projects. As we begin this new year, we are currently planning those projects.
- First Gifts
Our alternative giving market provides the opportunity to give gifts that make a difference. Church, community and global organizations offer specific ways to give gifts that can honor or be given in memory of a loved one.
- Laundry Day
Several times a year our team does laundry free of charge in a neighborhood laundry mat. This ministry allows those living in poverty to have clean laundry and to put that money back into their budgets for other necessary goods.
- Longview Interfaith Hospitality Network Inn Keeper
This agency serves to provide a plan for homeless families to rebuild their lives. Our church, along with others in the community, serve as a temporary home. Once every two months we house and feed families for one week. You can participate by cooking, serving meals, hosting the family in the evening or by being the overnight host. It is a wonderful way to offer kindness and hope to a family that is struggling.
- Love Does
This one day event is our community outreach day. We begin with breakfast and worship and then move out into the neighborhood to serve those around us. We offer a variety of ways to serve so that all can participate; children, youth, and adults.
