Midway United Methodist Church Donates $10,200 to Family Promise of Forsyth County
By: Midway United Methodist Church
The financial support is dedicated to continuing the work Family Promise is doing in the Forsyth County community to change the lives of families experiencing homelessness.
Funds will be used for increasing services in the organization's new Community-Based Services (CBS) program. This new program serves families who may not need or may not qualify for Family Promise's traditional program which includes shelter and meals.
A small ceremony took place at Midway United Methodist Church sanctuary, on Wed., Dec 8, at 7:00 p.m., during a check presentation to celebrate this donation.
"We are so appreciative of the Midway UMC community," said Tina Ferrario Huck, Executive Director of Family Promise of Forsyth County. "Not only are they providing these much-needed funds, but they have also been an integral part of the FP family since we opened our doors five years ago serving as a Host Congregation providing families with a safe place to stay, meals and most important, loving support on their journey from homelessness to sustainable independence."
Midway United Methodist Church is also a host church for Family Promise of Forsyth County. The parishioners provide food, clothing, voluntary work hours, hospitality, and security for families under their roof. The members and visitors of the church also donated to numerous local nonprofits and several charities other countries, including Haiti and Venezuela. Midway Mission Possible 9: A Dash of Hope, 5K Run/Walk Peachtree qualifier and Kids Fun Run dedicated all its proceeds this year to Family Promise.
"The Mission Possible Midway 5K is in its nineth year and is a Peachtree Road Race qualifier. The proceeds from the race are always donated to a local charity. The race is in late September or early October" said Jeff Behrhorst, Missions Chair at Midway UMC. "The race begins at MUMC and weaves its way through the area around the church. It's always a fun event with great energy."
Midway United Methodist Church has been a part of the community since the beginning. In the 1830s – about the time Forsyth County was incorporated – the first congregation came together and built a small wood-frame church where the current chapel stands today.
