Through the generous giving by the FWS congregation, the Outreach Ministry Team has been intentional about pushing out the funds received through our monthly “Mission Moment” asks to support local non-profit ministries.
Team Treasurer, Dan Daniels, has announced that over the past six weeks, the Outreach team has made disbursements to the Allen County Jail Chaplaincy ($2,400), local Campus Ministry ($1,300), Redemption House ($700), and the East Wayne Street Center ($700). They have also forwarded $1,428 to the Indiana Conference of the UMC in support of UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief) and are in the process of sending $1,320 to the Fort Wayne Rescue Mission.
Alive Community Outreach was the focus ministry for our April mission gifts and $612 had been contributed so far toward a goal of $3,000 for a maximum matching grant from the Indiana Annual Conference. Dan says, “Thank you, thank you, thank you to our extravagantly generous FWS members.”
