Rev. David Beam, Senior Pastor at First United Methodist Church (FUMC) (R) spoke at the Franklin Kiwanis meeting recently about feeding Macon County's hungry. Beam reported that the biggest need in Macon County was hunger. CareNet was started by churches 26 years ago.
Today, many Macon County churches continue to work with CareNet to provide food for the hungry. Feeding the hungry is a priority ministry at First United Methodist Church.
Planting a garden this year, the church was able to provide more than 1,000 lbs. of fresh vegetables to CareNet.
