Congregational Care

The Congregational Care Committee is “the heart of FUMC Hampton”.  Committee members provide outreach and support to church members through visits, calls and cards. Annually, an angel tree provides special Christmas cheer to our shut ins. Committee members also assemble Sunshine Baskets at Easter time to share with our shut-ins.

Committee Chair:  Jane Miller

Evangelism

The Evangelism Committee primarily focuses on expanding our outreach into the community by participating in local events, hosting events that are open to the public, and sending out targeted mailings to let our neighbors know what’s happening at FUMC.

 

Missions

The Missions Committee provides the very important service of guiding our church’s efforts to offer support, and to share the love of Jesus Christ, to our community and the world. Some of the missions we support are:

  • Project Crossroads –  serves the needs of God’s children through home repair, new home construction, firewood delivery, and emergency assistance.
  • Camp Rainbow Connection – Volunteers share a week with intellectually challenged adults. Campers have a buddy for the week and experience summer camp, some for the very first time.
  • Hampton Roads Ecumenical Lodgings and Provisions – HELP supports people in transition to rebuild lives changed by circumstances beyond control. During the winter months, FUMC hosts Nights Welcome by feeding and providing shelter on the coldest nights to folks who would be sleeping on the streets. Website: http://helphouse.org.
  • Transitions and Menchville House – Shelters for battered women and their children in transition.

 

Education

The Education Committee supports spiritual growth and a greater understanding of our relationship with Jesus Christ by providing opportunities for individuals and groups to learn and study. The committee also organizes and arranges several events each year that assist the church’s mission of reaching outward into our local community. Events include:

  • Sunday School Teacher Appreciation Luncheon
  • Easter Party
  • Graduation Dinner (for graduating high school seniors)
