This Week@FUMC Allen
September 20 2020
Greetings!

The staff and leadership of your church are working on plans for an expanded Sunday morning worship schedule.

Cleaning and sanitizing protocols require that the sanctuary not be occupied for an hour after a worship service, so we are considering two worship hours at 8:30am and 11:00am.
We'd like to have your input on preferred worship times and style. Please complete our short survey which will guide us in our planning.

Thank you.
Bishop Mike McKee has required that all participants attending in-person worship in United Methodist Churches in the North Texas Conference must wear a mask during worship except when leading singing or while preaching.

If you do not have a mask upon arrival, we will provide one for you.

Dear FUMC Allen

Thank you for hosting a blood drive in August. Your willingness to open your doors and recruit blood donors is vital to the lives of the patients that we serve. Your support and generosity helps to ensure blood needs are met locally, and, once that is done, assists the Red Cross in ensuring blood is available when and where it is needed the most.

The ongoing fulfillment of our mission depends on you!

Your blood drive held in August is now on its way to helping hospital patients at the following hospitals. You and your team should be proud!

  • METHODIST HOSPITAL-HOUSTON
  • ST JOHN MEDICAL CENTER
  • HILLCREST MEDICAL CENTER
  • HOUSTON METHODIST BAYTOWN HOSPITAL
  • MEDICAL CITY DENTON

*While there may have been other hospitals that benefited from your efforts, these hospitals received the majority of blood products collected from your drive.

On behalf of the hospitals and patients we serve, thank you for your continuing support of the Red Cross!

The journey of a pint
of life-saving blood begins with you.
Here are the latest opportunities to strengthen
your faith and connect with your community.
