Greetings,

Have you heard about our Identification Ministry?

FMC's Identification Ministry provides assistance to individuals needing to acquire an official state ID. For various reasons, such as homelessness, incarceration, or even robbery, an ID can get lost. Individuals cannot get jobs or services without proper identification. Our ID teams help these folks take a step down the road to self-sufficiency by walking them through the process of getting new identification. 

Our Tuesday and Thursday morning teams meet at the Crisis Assistance Center in Conroe where they have a space set up for this work and begin serving others in a way that brings real and lasting benefits. 

Be a part of this team! Training is provided and basic computer skills are requested. If you are interested, contact me at jstilwell@fumc-conroe.org.
