PAPER RECYCLING PROJECT
We take God’s call to be stewards of all Creation seriously at Fishers UMC. One way you can help care for the environment and witness to this commitment is by recycling. Our Paper Recycling Dumpster is located in the South parking lot next to fellowship hall. Please bring your Sunday bulletins, newspapers, magazines, junk mail, and catalogs to be recycled and the proceeds will help support living wages for coffee farmers worldwide. For more information contact the Church Office.
UMCOR COFFEE PROJECT
We partner with the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) and Equal Exchange to serve Fair Trade coffee at all church events. By serving Fair Trade coffee we help to support justice for small coffee farmers around the world who usually make very little profit despite the high prices coffee retailers usually receive from coffee sales. By combining this effort with our paper recycling project (to offset the increased cost of serving Fair Trade coffee), we make good use of all of our resources, and provide a strong social witness to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Throughout the year, Fishers UMC hosts several drives to collect items such as Diapers, Clothing, School Supplies and much more! These drives go to several agencies throughout Hamilton & Marion County. Please check out the bulletin, newsletter, weekly email, and social media for information about these drives.
