Welcome to the website of
Fountain Park United Methodist Church
Love Inc. mobilizes Christian Churches to transform lives and communities in the name of Christ. It was realized the current system of financial handouts was enabling negative behavior rather than addressing root causes. Love Inc. streamlines and manages the way assistance is distributed among churches. At present, 35 churches have partnered with Love Inc. It provides services such as budgeting counseling, job placement, child care, and other services. Volunteers are key to the organization with more than 3,000 signed up. Here at FPUMC we started a community meal on the first Sunday of the month. For more info on Love Inc. or to volunteer, call 920-783-6701 or visit their website, www.loveinc.org

Things to Know
Pie Sale Fund Raiser: The annual FPUMC Youth pie sale will run October 11th through November 8th. Choose from Pumpkin, Dutch Apple and Peanut Butter. Pick-up dates will be November 14th & 15th.
Jesus Well: If you’ve seen collection bottles by sinks and bubblers in church and wondering what it’s all about, visit our FPUMC News webpage for details and find out how you can help a village get clean drinking water.
Soda Pop Sunday: By simply donating the price of a can of soda will help save the life of a rescued infant in Kenya!! These infants are often found abandoned along the road or in the trash. So we are joining forces to support Dave & Jennifer Bell’s rescue mission in Kenya. The last Sunday of every month will be designated as “Soda Pop Sunday”. Funds collected will help buy needed items such as medicine, diapers, and infant food. What a wonderful way to care for “the least of these” until they are adopted by a Christian family. For more info go to the Mission Page.
Operation Shopping Cart: So what’s up with the shopping cart in the Gathering Area? The Missions Committee has streamlined donation requests for canned & boxed food items and paper products. This will be a year round endeavor. All collected items will go to, 1) food pantries at Campus Life, Safe Harbor, Salvation Army, and Sheboygan County Food Pantry on a rotation basis, 2) out youth group can use any needed items for any of their missions, 3) and for other committees that reach out to our neighborhood. A printed list of acceptable items is on the shopping cart. No glass products.
FPUMC News: Make sure you check out the FPUMC News page and the Photo Gallery page for news & photos about the latest events involving the church and its members.
Hospitality Table: Join your fellow church friends and visitors for coffee, juice & snacks for a little social time every Sunday before and after the worship service in the Narthex. All are welcome!!
