OUTREACH

Caring for others and extending a helping hand is the heart of Missions Outreach at Smyrna First United Methodist Church.  We take seriously the commandment in 1 Peter 4:10 that each of us should use whatever gift we have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God's grace in its various forms.

FOOD PANTRY

We provide emergency food for the community.

BACKPACK PROGRAM

The Mission Team in conjunction with the UMW Sunshine Circle is continuing the backpack feeding program for Smyrna Elementary School children who are “food insecure.” Food insecure means children, who participate in the free or reduced price lunch program, including homeless children, may or may not have anything to eat on weekends. Gallon size food bags contain 2 breakfast items, 2 lunch/dinner items, 2 snacks, and 2 drinks, and are sent home in the children’s backpacks each weekend.

DISASTER RELIEF

UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief) alleviates human suffering, whether caused by war, conflict or natural disaster. UMCOR operates throughout the world and the US.  

RISE AGAINST HUNGER

Smyrna First is joining the movement to end hunger by 2030 by holding an annual food packaging event, feeding approximately 10,000 people.  The food packages will be shipped internationally to the most vulnerable.  This project is sponsored by the Senior Adult ministries of the church.  

We are excited that the ministry of Project Transformation engaging children in our communities, building relationships, and improving literacy will continue this summer, although in a different form. As a partner congregation we need your help.  

  1. Help distribute meals and supplies to children at our site location of LaVergne FUMC the week of June 29-July 2 from 10:30 am-2 pm. We need 2-3 volunteers each day.

  2. Help us provide 70 summer camps-in-a-bag that will be distributed to children. Drop items off at Smyrna FUMC by June 21. See the list here.

  3. Serve as a Pen Pal for a PT student this summer. We're looking for 2-3 volunteers.

  4. Pray for the wonderful ministry of PT.
