Welcome to FMC Outreach

The Purpose of FMC Outreach

The Outreach Commission is the branch of the Leadership Council that facilitates the church's vision with regard to various outreach functions at the local, conference, church-wide and global level. It supports and fulfills the church's mission to follow Jesus Christ and his teachings; to walk in compassion with those who suffer; to seek truth; to wage peace and freedom through truth, love and action and to promote wholeness of life and joyful, abundant living for everyone. 

This drawing shows the many ways folks at FMC are involved in outreach.
