FINANCIAL PEACE UNIVERSITY

We all need a plan for our money. Financial Peace University (FPU) is that plan! It teaches God's ways of handling money. Through video teaching, class discussions, and interactive small group activities, FPU presents biblical, practical steps to get from where you are to where you've dreamed you could be. FPU classes are usually offered every spring and fall. Contact Kathryn Cummings for more details.


GRIEF GROUPS

Grief groups are offered occasionally and follow the material titled Beyond the Broken Heart: A Journey Through Grief. Contact  Brian Yoder for more info.

UNITED METHODIST MEN - Contact Bill Bryant

At FUMC Graham, the United Methodist Men have two fundraising projects a year, a pancake supper during Advent, and a hot dog lunch after worship one Sunday in the spring. Monies raised go toward the UMM Scholarship and to help the Boy Scouts. Any food that is left over from these events is taken to Allied Churches of Alamance County Homeless Shelter for the Good Shepherd Kitchen. The group also honors our graduating high school seniors and their families with a breakfast the Sunday prior to graduation.
