Aging Out

After children graduate from high school, we rejoice with you. When in-person fellowship resumes, anyone who is not a parent of a K-12th grade child must have completed Ministry Safe training and have a valid certificate on file with FUMCR to attend. Should you or your adult child need support from FUMCR, please contact Rev. Joy Anderson at 972.235.8385 for options beyond SPAN's limited resources.

Gifts of Money or Time

SPAN welcomes contributions for the monthly dinners and emergency needs. Donations may be made by mailing a check, written to FUMCR, and mailed to the church. Please designate SPAN on your donation.

Contact Hawana Townsley at 972.996.0145 or to volunteer to provide a meal. SPAN is a perfect one-time or recurring mission for a small group.
