“If your gift is that of serving others, serve them well. When God’s children are in need, be the one to help them out.” Romans 12: 7, 13

The Outreach Work Area of the United Methodist Church of Fayetteville is based upon these bible verses. Outreach is the steering committee of the church for programs and projects such as: Christmas presents for needy families, Crop Walk, Service Auction for the Syracuse University Chaplaincy, water for the homeless in Syracuse, and many others.
