Churchwide Musical Dramas such as “My Favorite Christmas Card” and “The Light of that City” have created powerful moments of worship that cross all barriers to exalt Christ.

Offering both Sanctuary and Contemporary worship options has been a key to reaching over 550 first time visitors and over 200 new members so far in 2012.

Pastors Tim Thompson, Patrick Quinn and others proclaim the word of God consistently to the 2,300 to 5,000 adults present in worship on a given Sunday.

Worship starts early at Frazer with our Children’s and Youth Worship Arts programs. YWA’s annual mission tour has spread the gospel in song from New York to Miami.

Frazer’s Hispanic Congregation volunteered countless hours after work to renovate the old TJ Maxx location as their new sanctuary this year. The new location better situates Frazer to continue reaching out to Spanishspeaking people in our community.

On Christmas Eve, 2011, the Frazer family raised over $147,000 in one night to fully fund construction of a church for the Deaf Community in Leveque, Haiti. Along with our partners at 410Bridge and Mission of Hope, almost all of the 168 deaf families have now moved from temporary housing to new homes, education is being provided for their children, adult education and job training programs are underway, and the love of Jesus is being shared. And Frazer doesn’t just send money: 17 Frazer teams have gone out to 6 different nations this year including several to Haiti.

305 students have participated in mission trips over the past for years, and those students are continuing to serve God once they move into college—proof that Frazer’s Crave Student Ministry is not only fun, it truly makes disciples of Jesus Christ among the upcoming generation.

Frazer’s Men’s Ministry expanded this year to include providing care to over 80 widows in the church family, completing 100 projects like this fence repair.

Frazer has over 100 small groups and classes, such as the Family Teams for Christ class shown here, which provide a connection to in-depth Bible teaching focused on transformational life application, all in the context of supportive and accountable Christian friendships.

Frazer’s ONEFamily initiative grew this year under the leadership of Leslie Word. Since starting in May of 2011, 24 Frazer foster families have been trained or licensed, 35 children have been cared for in Frazer Foster Families, 25 Foster care bags have been delivered, 100 meals have been supplied, 5 families are in the process of adopting domestically or internationally, and 1 child was adopted out of foster care by their foster family.

Participants not only learn good sportsmanship, they hear the gospel through their coaches and half-time witnesses.

Giving to pay the power bill, clean the restrooms, and pay off the building loan may not sound very inspiring, until you consider how the growth of Frazer’s campus over the years has literally made room for thousands of people to encounter God’s presence in worship, created a safe, loving environment for children to learn, provided classroom space for adults to study the Bible, created a place to share meals and activities and build relationships that outlast the storms of life, and established a base of operations from which all of our mission efforts to the city and the world are based.

After launching in 2011, this year God has begun opening doors left and right for project Transform Montgomery. We have now purchased or put contracts on eight houses in the Garden Square neighborhood and a large commercial building. Volunteers have begun cleaning the yards and renovating the houses. Ultimately, the plan is to provide affordable housing to the working poor and a Christ-centered path out of poverty through an innovative mentoring process—spreading hope to our city one family and one neighborhood at a time.

Through our investments in technology in WFRZ Television and FrazerUMC.org, and the many volunteers in our Communications Ministries, we are able to spread the message of Christ by television, radio, podcast, and livestreaming to all of Central Alabama and around the world.

Notes 1. Apportionments are how United Methodist Churches cooperate to fund missions and ministry together. Frazer’s apportionments were reduced this year due a lower budget request from our district. 2. Individual missionary support was reduced, but mission project support was increased this year, for an overall increase in our missions support. This change reflects an effort by our Missions Board to focus more resources in a few key areas so we can make a greater long-term impact—in other words, going deeper instead of wider. 3. The Asbury Campus of Frazer requested this year to launch out on their own as a new church, Zion Fellowship United Methodist. 4. Discipleship staff added a new position for college/young adult ministry director. 5. New furnishings and equipment will be purchased this year out of any surplus funds after the end of the year rather than be a budgeted item. 6. Serve team program staff reduced by attrition; mission staff increased by addition in Community Ministries. 7. Communication staff reduced by contracting out services for web design. 8. The budgeted amount for Debt Retirement is sufficient to continue paying off our debt by the first quarter of 2015. Giving above and beyond the budgeted amount would allow us to pay the debt even sooner, reduce the overall interest paid and free more money in the future for investment in ministry and mission. †

Staff expenses were reduced in several areas due to savings in health insurance costs.

Frazer’s Prayer Ministry has received and prayed for over 2,900 prayer requests this year. Requests are taken at the church, by phone, and online. Prayer Shawl Ministry volunteers stitched over 700,000 knots in shawls for 250 individuals in special need—every stitch representing a prayer. 8 | 2013 Frazer Budget
