First United Methodist Church of Coppell celebrated 136 years this past weekend. The entire mission weekend was devoted to serving the community and the globe. There were hands on deck preparing food kits for the food bank, hygiene kits for Austin Street Shelter, clean up at the nature trail, gardening at Wilson Elementary, goodie bags for the Fire and Police stations, and more. My favorite event was “Stuck in the Boat,” which raised funds for an upcoming mission trip to Africa to help children who were trafficked and enslaved in the fishing industry in Ghana.
Congratulations FUMC on 136 years. Keep up the great service!
