“By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”  John 13:35


Operation Love Your Neighbor is the local missions program of the Vero Beach First United Methodist Church. As a church family our mission is "To Know Christ And To Make Him Known." Our Lord has called us to be His hands, His feet and His heart in loving service to members of our community, especially those who are the most vulnerable. We partner with Vero Beach Elementary, a Title 1 school and we serve over 20 organizations in Indian River County that minister to families and children who are in need.

OLYN Service Opportunity to Sponsor Relief Buckets

The hot days of summer are upon us and the impact of the heat and humidity is especially difficult for the homeless. Many of the homeless live in wooded areas around our community. FUMC is looking to provide relief buckets to the homeless and we need donors who are willing to sponsor one or more relief buckets. Each bucket costs $50.00 and is packed with health and hygiene items along with food, water, bug spray, sun screen and other useful outdoor living products. This is an opportunity for our church family to show the love of Christ to those living at the margins of our community. Please make your donation out to FUMC and designate the funds for Relief Buckets. We hope to start delivering buckets to homeless camps within the next few weeks. Thank you for your generosity!

OLYN Service Opportunity Come join us in a prayer walk at Vero Beach Elementary on Tuesday morning, August 6 at 7:00 AM. We will meet at the front entrance to the school and walk the campus together lifting up prayers for the teachers, administrators, students and families for the upcoming school year. We will pray for God’s blessings upon all who enter the grounds of VBE, and for the Lord to be honored and glorified through our church family’s service to the teachers and the children. We will also greet the teachers as they arrive on their first day back to school. We hope to see you at VBE!
