For 39 years volunteers have pulled together and donated hours of time and energy to host the annual Harvest Festival to raise funds for special projects at First UMC. This year, instead of raising funds the night of the event with ticket sales, auctions, and raffles we will be raising funds in the weeks leading up to February 29 and celebrating our efforts with a barbecue dinner with the cutest hosts you’ll ever meet...the FUMC Kids!
So, how does this work? We are asking that you donate the funds you would have used to purchase items for an auction, spend at the auction, or for tickets for the dinner. There will also be an opportunity for you to make a donation the night of the dinner.
The funds raised for this event will be used to create a new Welcome Center that is a warm and inviting space for those who enter our facility. It will also serve as a home for our Greeters, Missions, and other ministries. The estimated cost for this project is $25,000-$35,000. (The images below represent how the space will be utilized, but do not reflect actual materials and finishes.)
You may use the form below to "sponsor" items or materials or to make a donation to the project to use as needed.
