HarlessIMG_9486Habitat for Humanity

FUMC Allen supports the North Collin County Habitat for Humanity, a  nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing ministry, seeking to eliminate poverty housing and homelessness from the world and to make decent shelter a matter of conscience and action, with funding and volunteers for annual builds in Collin County.

Legal Aid Clinic

Sponsored by the Legal Services of Northwest Texas, the Legal Aid program provides pro-bono services with civil cases for qualified applicants on the second Thursday of each month. The Legal Aid mission is an amazing avenue for people in our community to find help and even comfort in God’s house where lawyers and paralegals use their gifts to offer legal advice and assistance. To learn more about FUMC Allen’s role with Legal Aid and how you or your small group can help, call Kim Klieger,  972.679.7768.

Juntos Servimos (Together We Serve)

A volunteer organization that provides medical care, food, construction, and education in the Colonias of Matamoros, Mexico.

Kairos Outside

Kairos Outside supports female members of families who have or have had loved ones incarcerated in county, state or federal correctional facilities, as well as county jails and youth offender programs. These women often “do time” right along with their incarcerated relatives/friends. It is important for them to know that they are not alone and that there is a Christian Community that cares about them.

Project Transformation

A day camp program hosted at 14 inner city churches in the Dallas area. Children who take part in this program often come from broken, low income families who would be at home by themselves or with siblings, eating whatever they can find, which is often not much. At the day camp, children experience the love of God through the interns and volunteers, doing crafts, reading one-on-one, bible stories, play time learning different sports/games as well as getting a nutritious balanced breakfast, lunch and snacks.

Circle Ten Council Boy Scouts of America

FUMC Allen is the charter organization for Boy Scout Troop 306, which meets on Mondays at 7:00pm in Fellowship Hall, and Boy Scout Troop 328, which meets on Tuesdays at 7:30pm in Fellowship Hall. More than a dozen cub scout dens meet in the church building each week.

Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas
