Ministries

Children

Our Children’s Ministry exists to help families to live out a commitment to worship, service and living in daily life. We believe all three are necessary in everyone’s spiritual journey and want to plant this seed early in our Children’s Ministry. Children’s Ministry Page

Holy Boldness

As a suburban congregation with a heart for our urban neighbors, we began an experiment several years ago by having a team attend urban ministry training through the Upstate Urban Academy of the UMC. We did not know, and do not yet know, where this may lead eventually, but for now we have developed relationships with two urban agencies where ministry teams share their time, conversation, food and prayer once a month. We are claiming our call to be holy and bold in our ministry, within and beyond the walls of the church building. We are always exploring what our congregational identity is, and hope that we’ll come to understand what God’s dream for our church might be. We are developing relationships with our immediate community, fully entrenched physically in a suburban village as we are, but we are also growing in compassion and dreams of justice for those in the city who need our presence, our prayers, our gifts, our service, our voice. We have a ways to go.

Learning Links of FUMC

We are offering a Learning Links  program at the Pines of Perinton for kids in school K-12 grades We are also offering English reading and writing help to parents at the Pines. The program is blessed with success so far and we expect more to attend every Tuesday night from 6:00 to 7:30 pm at the Pines Community Center (near the office).  This program is supported by the Fairport Public School District.  For more information or to volunteer for this ministry please contact Kate Thon at yokate@juno.com or by phone at 377-2565
