First UMC held its first ever Sunday Day of Service. Our emphasis was on addressing hunger in our community. Over 750 people were fed through our First Feeding Neighbors program, a food drive benefitting The Greater Lansing Food Pantry, and a free community dinner. Meals were also delivered to our at-home members. What a great day!

First UMC was excited to host a kick-off event  for AFAR (All Faith Alliance for Refugees). What a great time dreaming of how we can make the Lansing area a welcoming place for our refugee neighbors!

The First U.M.C. family was blessed to work alongside volunteers from across the city this morning. Together, we served over 250 families through the Greater Lansing Mobile Food Pantry. What a wonderful opportunity to make God's grace visible in our community!

The people of First U.M.C. thank God for the opportunity to serve their neighbors through the First Feeding Neighbors ministry. On Friday, volunteers delivered 300 lunches to the people of our community. We also celebrated the start of a new minsitry: First Shaing Books. Over a hundred children's books were given away to very excited children following the lunch delivery this week. What fun!
