Financial Support:

Through the generous member giving, we are able to provide financial support to local ministries, such as St. Luke’s Lifeworks, Bridgeport Rescue Mission and Habitat for Humanity. In addition, through special offerings of the United Methodist Church, we are able to respond to natural disasters, such as the earthquakes in Haiti and Japan.

Hands-on Support:

Covenant to Care – FUMC has committed to helping the Stamford Department of children and Families meet the needs of its clients. We respond to emergency requests for food and clothing, and provide school supplies, Christmas gifts, and holiday food baskets for children and families in need.
