Our Mission Partners

Food Pantries

Our relationship with the Leavenworth Mission at 1140 Spruce provides food to people. The food pantry is held multiple times a month.  Through a suggestion by FUMCL, we started one night a month where people can pick up food after work.  FUMCL provides deliveries to apartments.  We also help with their recycling.  The donation of a laptop helped with administration.  We also support Trinity House, the food pantry at Trinity Lutheran Church at 2101 S. 10th Avenue.

Deeper Windows

Deeper Windows Association supports and advocates for people living with dementia and their care partners.  While they were dormant due to pandemic restrictions in the past, FUMCL was able wot work with them on several opportunities.  Our commercial kitchen is used to help create baked goods for an annual bake sale that net over $45k.  That’s a lot of cookies and cakes!

More food options

A school partnership developed with Anthony school that includes encouraging notes for staff, food distribution, Christmas angel tree for needy families, book fair purchase, staff appreciation meals and cookies & milk for the entire school.

FUMC expands our partnership with the following mission partners through time, talent and treasure:  Backpack BuddiesSt. Vincent ClinicSamaritans BuffetCommunity of Hope homeless shelter, Council on Aging, Seventh Street Feast – community-wide Thanksgiving meal, Anthony Elementary school and Leavenworth & Lansing High Schools.

The Hub

We’re partnering with the HUB, a United Methodist mission in Argentine, by collecting supplies for their free food and necessities pantry.  The church’s response has been amazing. This year we’ve taken carloads full of toilet paper, paper towels, soap, shampoo and conditioner.  Thank you for your generosity.  In May we are continuing to collect any type of canned beans, soup and ramen noodles. Drop donations in the wooden chest in the foyer or in the church office.

Romania has overwhelming needs for Christian homes.  This includes a new home with twenty-eight Ukrainian children.  In May 2022, Pastor Dave went with two other pastors from Colorado.  His goal was to see about the possibilities of partnering with a mission group called Global Hope.  Their mission is to provide Christ-centered care for orphaned and vulnerable children through global partnerships.  Started in 1995 with a single home in Romania, Global Hope has grown to three nations including Kenya and India.  Almost 500 children are cared for through providing shelter, food, clothing, education, medical care and most of all, LOVE.  With the war in Ukraine, the need is increasing daily.
