BENEFITING: FOURTH STREET UNITED METHODIST CHURCH
Fourth Street UMC is a community based church who best gift is outreach to the world over the past 125 years. 1 - Currently we are supporting a new ministry in Uganda that is caring for 22 children by providing them with education, housing, clothing, healthcare and food. it is working toward becoming a self-sustaining ministry as it has developed a farming community to meet its needs and the needs of others. We have assisted it to purchase chickens and cows and animal feed in order to produce eggs and milk to consume and sell. 2 - We want to make our church more accessible to those in the community who need a safe space to gather. In order to do that, we must upgrade our facility we have three levels but no elevator which makes the building difficult to use for community activity and outreach. 3 - We want to create an endowment fund to enable the church to provide scholarships and youth programming into the future. 4 - We would like to increase the support we provide for the needy families and individuals in our community.
