Florida Children's Home
Fifth Sunday Offering during all 3 services. Envelopes will be available in bulletins.
This will be a great opportunity to help support this wonderful organization that makes a difference in children’s lives.
Since our founding in 1908 as the Florida Methodist Orphanage, the Florida United Methodist Children’s Home has enjoyed a strong and vibrant connection with the local United Methodist Churches of the Florida Annual Conference. We continue to seek ways for local churches to be involved in meaningful ways with the total ministry of the Children’s Home. We also continue to rely on the local churches to underwrite the financial needs of this life changing ministry.
The Children’s Home is an extension of your local church. We are here to help you and assist you with those difficult family situations that many arise in your church or ministry. Do not ever hesitate to call on us with questions or concerns about children and families in your church. Many calls we receive are not just about admitting a child into care, but deal with available resources, possible alternatives, suggestions and advice on dealing with issues facing children and families in your community. Keeping families together is always a priority. Moving a child out of their home should always be a final measure once all other possible interventions have been considered.
