Welcome to the website of
Fountain Park United Methodist Church

We pray that your time spent here will enrich your walk with the Lord.  We are ordinary people who hunger for more of God, a church family that cares for one another, disciples of Jesus who share His love of others, and a church where you can serve and grow.  We worship and serve God from a heart of love, faithfully proclaiming Christ in word and deed.

Things to Know

UMC LogoUnited Methodists Standing Firm:  “So then, brothers and sisters, stand firm and hold fast to the traditions that you were taught by us, either by word of mouth or by our letter.” -2 Thessalonians 2:15 (NRSV)  Now is a time for faithful United Methodists to follow the repeated New Testament mandate “stand firm” in the biblical faith handed down to us from Jesus Christ and His apostles.  The United Methodist Church has a great spiritual heritage, and continues to be used powerfully by God around the world to build His kingdom. Consistent with the clear witness of Scripture and 2,000 years of consistent ecumenical Christian tradition, the UMC officially teaches that sex is God’s good gift given only for the holy covenant of marriage between man and woman.  See their website: Stand Firm UMC.
cholarship Awards:  The Scholarship committee is pleased to announce the following recipients receiving FPUMC scholarships for the 2016/2017 school year: Ryan Moenning, Tanner Moenning, Matthew Stokdyk, Kristin Wishman, Celeste Benzschawel, Payton Benzschawel, Kelly Johnston, Taylor Radder, and Naomi Waddell.
Sam & Valerie - CopyFPUMC Welcomes New Staff Member: 
On June 19th, the Fountain Park UMC family welcomed Sam Cocar as our new youth coordinator.  He will be part of an outreach effort in the community.  He originates from Chicago.  He is joined by his wife Valerie, who is from Sheboygan, and their daughter, Evie. 

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 CanSoda 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.

Shopping CartOperation 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) Sheboygan County Food Pantry, 2) our youth group can use items for any of their missions, 3) for other committees that reach out to our neighborhood, 4) help for church members in need.  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!!
