Welcome to the website of
Fountain Park United Methodist Church
Mission of the Month – July: Since 1895, The Salvation Army has been serving the greater Sheboygan area by providing social services and church programs for people of all ages. During this 120-year period, the basic needs of the less fortunate members of our community have really not changed, however the number of the less fortunate has grown tragically. The Salvation Army has also grown providing 12,851 nights of shelter to the homeless in 2014. The food pantry distributed 10,120 bags of food. The free clinic served 738 individuals. Finally 2,214 individuals received assistance in some manner. The revenue to fund these programs continues to get harder to get. The biggest challenge for the Sheboygan facility is to keep the Emergency Lodge open 24/7. Donations are badly needed. One way to help and have fun is to participate in the 2015 Salvation Ride on Saturday, July 11th starting at Blue Harbor. Collect donations and sponsors for bike rides from 10 to 100 miles. Go to www.thesalvationride.org for details.

Things to Know
Youth Mission Trip: FPUMC Youth will be traveling to Middletown, OH, July 12-18. Canned food donations will be collected and taken with the youth. Also, items for “Welcome Home” kits for low-income families such as bath towels, dish soap, toothpaste, laundry soap, dryer sheets, cleaning supplies, toiletries, will be accepted until July 5th.
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.
Love INC. Volunteers: If you would be able to help local families with various needs, please contact Shannon at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 783-6701 x102.
Soda Pop Sunday: By simply donating the price of a can of soda will help save the life of a rescued infant at CSI Ministries-Kenya!! These infants are often found abandoned along the road or in the trash. So we are joining forces with other churches 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 about CSI Ministries, see 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.
