Every follower of Jesus has a role in God's transformational work of grace. We are all called by God to serve together as disciples of Jesus Christ, loving God and loving our neighbor. Our members are involved in a variety of service and mission opportunities within our church, our community, and globally. Some of our current mission opportunities are listed below. To explore the many ways you may serve, within and beyond the walls of the church, please see our Service Interest Form.
Caldwell Elementary School
FUMC, in partnership with 3E McKinney, has adopted Caldwell Elementary, a Title I school in the McKinney ISD. This new mission of the church offers an opportunity for all church members to get involved in serving the needs of local children. Many different opportunities are available to help. You can be a room parent, mentor, buddy, coordinate a six-week club or help in the classroom, workroom or library, just to name a few. Before you are able to volunteer at the school you are required to fill out an online application with McKinney ISD. Click here for application.
Hands and Hammers
This is our home repair and construction ministry. Currently, Hands and Hammers is working in conjunction with Habitat for Humanity and the City of McKinney to refurbish homes on the east side of the city that are in disrepair. Contact David Thompson at email@example.com.
Children and Community Health Center (CCHC) of McKinneyOpened in 2004 by our own Mary Nelle Cummins with support from many church members, CCHC is a community-based effort to deliver basic healthcare to the underserved residents of McKinney and the surrounding areas. These services are provided with compassion and dignity through a free clinic staffed by volunteer healthcare professionals supported by community volunteers. This non-profit outreach program provides food to families and individuals in need. FUMC holds a food drive for the Food Pantry twice a year; however, volunteer opportunities are available year-round. This agency offers emergency financial assistance to families in temporary crisis situations. This support includes, but is not limited to, rent, mortgage, utilities, food, clothing, gas, dental, medical and prescription assistance.
Working towards the conviction that every family should have a decent, affordable place to live in dignity and safety, FUMC has helped build homes since 2002. Through donations of volunteer time and finances, we are making a difference in the lives of families in Collin County. This non-profit organization has helped thousands of homeless people in Collin County regain their independence with comprehensive programs and the help of caring individuals and corporations. The Samaritan Inn is the only homeless shelter in Collin County.
Emergency Disaster Relief
From supporting hurricane victims to regular support of UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief), FUMC is active in providing aid in times of crisis due to natural disasters.
The purpose of 3E-McKinney is to engage and equip community focused churches to channel their resources (funds, time and people) into Older McKinney in order to bring glory to God, hope to the impoverished, make a positive impact on all aspects of community life, and empower families to achieve emotional, spiritual and economic success.
We have sent mission teams each year to Guatemala since 2001. Motivated by Christ’s love, our mission teams help local Pokomchi improve their quality of life through improving infrastructure, conducting health clinics, leading Bible schools and promoting micro-businesses.
Each year during spring break our youth travel to an area in need to perform mission work. In the process they learn what it means to serve in the name of Christ. This trip is open to high school youth and eight graders who attend with a parent.
The purpose of this trip is to promote FUMC-McKinney's covenant relationship with our United Methodist missionaries in Panama, Rev. David and Cindy Ceballos. We support our missionaries goal to build a local church and promote better health for the marginalized and indigenous population of Panama.
