International Outreach

 
International Mission Trips -  Our church is beginning to venture into the international mission field, and is committed to exploring and looking for locations with which to establish long-term missional relationships. We traveled to Haiti in 2012, to the Methodist Habitat in the Bahamas in 2014, and to Kenya in June, 2016.  These trips are open to high school juniors and seniors as well as adults of all ages and skill levels.  Contact Hattie Stahl at hstahl@fumclg.org for more information.
