The prayer for First UMC McAllen Women is to create a community of women, who through fellowship, activities, scripture, prayer and service, draw closer to each other and closer to Christ.
"Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing." Thessalonians 5:11 (NIV)

As a teenager Katie moved to Uganda, founded a successful humanitarian organization, became a mother through adoption and served where God called her. However, after an unexpected tragedy rocked her family, she felt the first stirrings of doubt in God's goodness. Yet in her doubts, Katie continued to turn to God. Here, she shares what she learned during that time and offers encouragement to readers to seek God even in those unexpected painful places. It's there that you can hear God's whisper of love, His filling of peace, and surprising gifts of joy.
With Marlene and Sparky Steiner
January 20th at 10:00 am
The Steiners will share their experiences and the blessings they have received as foster parents for many years.

People from all over the community, woven together in Christ, are gathering to weave plastic bags into blessings for those living on the streets in need of a mat to sleep on. Initiated by Susan Turlapati and the Woven Women of FUMC McAllen, God is using this ministry to bring people together from all different walks to take care of those who have so much less. People in mobile home parks and neighboring cities are weaving. Our friends at C.A.M.P. University and Bridges Assisted Living are sorting and cutting bags. High School and Scout groups are weaving. All are welcome to come join us in this opportunity to serve others and recycle plastice grocery bags.
FUMC McAllen has the priviledge to be a part of Emily’s Meals, a ministry which began as a young girl’s Lenten project almost three years ago. This ministry feeds a meal every single day of the year to 40 homeless people in McAllen. We are thankful for the opportunity to help share God’s love through the kindness of a meal to those who need one. Pictured are a few of the cooks and delivery people from FUMC McAllen. Anyone interested in being a part of this ministry is welcome. We will be delivering every other week beginning January 4.
