Volunteer with Fremont FUMC
Fremont First UMC is dedicated to our neighbors – literally on our block, in our community, and throughout the world. This drives us to offer service opportunities throughout the year and for people with a wide range of skill sets.
During January and February we will be assisting with the:
Tim Tebow Night To Shine Fremont Event February 7th 6-9pm. This event is a prom that is dedicated to people with special needs. This is a celebration for them and a night where they get the opportunity to be in the spotlight.
Contact Edie Ronhovde 402-707-0106 with any questions
There are many ways that you can help on this event.
Edie Ronhovde will be purchasing supplies for the event and if you want to donate to this you can put a check in the offering plate and in the memo write Night to Shine or you can drop money off at the office.
You can donate gently used prom dresses or special occasion dresses. High school sized boys or men’s suits are needed as well. These need to be in good shape and can be dropped off to Thriftology at 549 N “H” Street. If you do not have any ask friends.
You can donate your time at the store when the prom attendees come in to get their dresses and suits. This is at Thriftology 549 N “H” Street. Donations can be dropped off on the following days: Monday, Wednesday, Friday 10-4pm Thursday 10-7pm, Saturday 10-2pm.
You may volunteer for the actual event on February 7th 6-9pm. If you are interested in volunteering, you need to go to this email address http://www.nighttoshinefremont.com/ Once you have filled out the form then you can choose which training session to go to. The training sessions will be on January 14th 6:30pm at the Nazarene Church 960 Johnson Road and the second choice is on February 1st at 9am in the same location.
Here below are some amazing pictures taken by members of our own congregation. Some volunteer activities vary from spending time with children, filling sandbags, throwing sandbags, and even just consoling people that are hurting. It’s amazing how we can show God’s love and mercy, by doing what we can in a time of need.

“Little children, let’s not love with words or speech but with action and truth.”
