Our support of Local, Regional and Worldwide Missions is a big part of who we are at FFUMC. We strive to have a deep impact in our community.

Local Outreach

Care Cuts Ministry

Help us serve lunch to our homeless friends in downtown Knoxville through the Care Cuts ministry on the third Sunday of every month. Volunteers serve immediately following the worship service (noon – 4:00 p.m.). If you can only serve during a portion of this time frame, that’s great too! If you are unable to serve downtown after the worship service, you can volunteer to deliver the food to Care Cuts the day before (Saturday) between 9:00 and 11:00 a.m. Directed donations to assist in covering the cost of the food are always appreciated. Make your check payable to FFUMC and note “Care Cuts Ministry” on the memo line or give online here. For more information, or to volunteer, send an email to Stacey Breeding here.
