Hope’s Door

The Ruth Circle from First United Methodist Church Allen has chosen to support the Change The World weekend by donating to Hope’s Door. Each member collects personal items and fills a creatively decorated shoe box along with a small toy for a child. They deliver these boxes to Hope’s Door for distribution to residents.

Military Support Group

Help us build care packages for our troops. Buckets are available beginning April 28 at the East Entrance at First United Methodist Church Allen to collect items to package on Sunday, May 19.

Cash donations to help pay for the shipping costs can be dropped in the offering plate (mark the check for military support) or left at the church office.

Direct any questions to Betty Matthews (214.734.656) at phizliz@yahoo.com
