Mission Read, FUMC's newest mission endeavor, began in January 2018. Its purpose is to help students with reading deficiencies read with fluency and understanding. To that end, 12 children who meet the school's criteria, come every Tuesday and Thursday afternoon to read for 45 minutes to 12 volunteers from our church and community. These volunteers listen, correct words when necessary, and discuss content with the children. Back at school, their progress is measured by weekly testing. If you would like to be a part of this mission program contact Carlene Pigott or Barbara Lott at 601-736-7121.
