Fairbanks UMC Makes a Difference Through Local School
In August, Fairbanks United Methodist Church hosted a luncheon for the staff of Dean Middle School. Over 150 people went to Fairbanks to eat, fellowship, and receive a back-to-school blessing before beginning another year.
Dean Middle School is Fairbanks UMC adopted school and church staff are working to be a greater presence in the school and community. The church also presented Dean MS with a $500 worth of needed school supplies. In addition, Fairbanks Assistance Ministries gave away 50 backpacks full of school supplies to children in the community.
The artwork of Dean Middle School students will be on display at the Fairbanks UMC Annual Community Barbeque on October 17 from 11:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.
