Central UMC has a long history of being in relationship with Fulton High School. Located less than two miles from the church, Fulton has a long and rich tradition in our community. In recent years, the leadership of both Central and Fulton have reconnected and restarted the partnership that was present for many years.
Since we reconnected in July 2014, we’ve been involved in the annual Fulton Frenzy by providing dinner to hundreds of students and families. Since 2015, we’ve hosted the Baccalaureate service in May, and throughout the year we find opportunities to extend hospitality and serve the Fulton community with food and other gifts.
Why is this important? While we may not always directly interact with students, the teachers are on the front lines every day. We look for ways we can encourage and bless the teachers as they do the difficult task of educating.
Plans for the 2020-2021 school year include:
- Lunch for teachers and staff
- Thanksgiving baskets
- School supplies via an Amazon Wish List
