Respond with action!

Every month, we have an activity for the church to come together and do some good here in Asheboro, or around the world. From packing meals for Rise Against Hunger, to helping at Lydia’s place shelter, be part of God’s kingdom of love!

April 1st at 9:00am, we gathered to package meals to help Rise Against Hunger! It was a great program, and a lot of fun. Keep an eye out for information on next years event!!

FUMC has a small food pantry that we keep stocked all year long with basics for those that are in need who stop by the church. We are always collecting food for those in need. Please check our weekly newsletter for must-need items!

In 2016, FUMC received a grant from the Randolph Health Community Foundation to plant a community garden. Since then we have provides thousands of pounds of fresh vegetables to programs throughout the community. Organized work dates for the garden will be announced over the summer. Check out our Facebook page, First Garden, for frequent updates!

Habitat for Humanity seeks to provide everyone a safe, decent place to live in Randolph County and beyond. FUMC supports Habitat through donations and through participation with building projects throughout the year. Check out the church newsletter for the next organized work date!

FUMC is partners with McCrary Elementary School. Our volunteers tutor children, collect school supplies at the start of the school year, give grants that allow students to attend school trips, and support the staff with an annual appreciation lunch. In 2017, FUMC started a new project; we received a C4C [Congregations for Children] grant from the Western North Carolina Conference of the United Methodist Church to help children in poverty reach their corresponding grade levels in reading. Some of our tutors work with children from Kindergarten and First Grade. As part of our commitment to the schools in our community, we participate in the Communities in Schools BackPack Program by providing bags of food for children to take home over the weekend. If you would like to volunteer at McCrary Elementary School, please contact the church office, or email
