Adopt-A-School Partners

  • Bellaire Elementary
  • Harrison Lane Elementary
  • Donna Park Elementary
  • Hurst Junior High
  • LD Bell High School
  • FUMC Hurst is also a HEB ISD District sponsor with a pledged gift of $15,000 between 2020-2022 to the HEB ISD Education Foundation.

We love our neighborhood schools! From school supplies, teacher support and appreciation, the Hot Dog Extravaganza, Empowered to Excel Grants through the HEB ISD Education Foundation, a backpack feeding program, spirit shirts, mentors, and more, we are doing everything we can to show the teachers, students, and administrators in our communities that we are with them and we love them.

The Village Library after-school program supports the Hurst-Euless-Bedford Independent School District (HEB ISD). The program has served students with academic and financial needs for over 20 years. Students enter the program with a C-average or lower and we consistently see more than 80% of students end their school year with a B-average or higher. Volunteering just one hour per week can make a difference in the lives of a student. Contact Rev. Matt Ybanez at  for more information.

If you cannot invest your time, please consider a financial investment. Every gift is used to help our students thrive. Visit Be sure to mention "The Village Library" when giving.

Project Transformation is a daily summer reading program for children who are at a high risk of falling behind in school because of an inability to read on-level. Every summer, many reading volunteers are needed to help provide a one on one reading opportunity for every student.

CarePortal connects our church to families in the child welfare system. The support we offer as we walk with these families can help prevent them from going deeper into the child welfare system or from being separated. Most often, families need beds, but there are other needs as well.


"Serving Our Seniors" has operated in Hurst for over thirty years to provide Hope, Help and Healing to resident Seniors.
