Florida United Methodist Children's Home
5th Sunday Offering January 31st
Each month that has a fifth Sunday, the United Methodist Churches in the Florida Annual Conference are asked to receive an offering to support the ministry of the Children's Home.
"For I know the plans I have for you,: declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11
At the Florida United Methodist Children's Home, this verse from Jeremiah serves as the foundational promise that guides the work we do. The children and youth in our care come to us in the midst of chaos, struggling to navigate the broken pieces of their lives. Your 5th Sunday Offering helps provide Florida's most vulnerable children and youth a safe place to call home and the tools they need to turn those broken pieces into a beautiful mosaic that reflects the treasured person God has created. Last year we served over 700 children and families through your support But we continue to have children who urgently need our care. With your help, we can work to give them a hope and a future.
Mission: To empower children and families to experience God's love as revealed in the ministry of Jesus Christ.
Vision: Creating wholeness in children and families through Christ.
Their website details the history, leadership, services, stories and more. It was interesting to learn it was established in 1908 as the Florida Methodist Orphanage in Enterprise, Florida. The changes it has undergone over the years is a remarkable read. The site even introduces you to Pinky and Sugar, the resident horses at the Madison Youth Ranch. Florida Children's Home is a multifaceted ministry that is continuing to find ways that allow them to better serve the children.
Also take time to visit their Facebook page, Facebook.com/fumch, and see posts of their activities, plans, successes and what our support helps make possible . Watch for information on their virtual "Day on Campus" currently scheduled for March 27th. f
