The Mission Ministry of FUMC is dedicated to connecting you with God’s mission and inspiring you to passionately participate in delivering his message from across the street to across the globe.

In its 14th year, BAH is a yearly Spring Break mission project of FUMC. 

Funding is provided to build a simple home, complete with appliances and amenities for a deserving family in the former colonia of Penitas in the Rio Grande Valley.


We are a mission-minded, family-friendly church in action, reaching our neighbors with the life-changing love of Jesus Christ.

Build-a-Home is going to have an envelope fundraiser starting this Sunday. We did this back in 2020, and it gave members an opportunity to contribute to a specific aspect of the home (a door, a ceiling fan, a refrigerator, etc.). The envelopes will be hanging in the foyer starting this week. Church members please pick an envelope, put your donation inside and drop in the offering plate
