Who We Are
Fern Creek/Highview United Ministries (FCHUM) is a not-for-profit social service agency founded in 1988 by 10 local churches in the Louisville, Kentucky area. A group of representatives from 10 different churches met and made a commitment to move beyond their denominational ties to work together to meet the needs of our community. Today, FCHUM is supported by area churches representing a large cross-section of different denominations working together who help make many significant contributions within the community on a daily basis.

St. Ignatius Men's Group
Many thanks to the St. Ignatius Eagles Men's Group who hold a once-a-month Chicken dinner at St. Ignatius on Rangeland Rd. They serve dinners September through April with all funds benefiting local charities. Since 1997 they have awarded $1,000 grants to the FCHUM Adult Day Health Center. Some years, including this December 2014 those grants have been for $2,000. At the awards ceremony this past December, FCHUM Executive Director Rev. Ron Lou ghry was also presented an Eagles shirt with “Rev. Ron” imprinted, along with the honor of being declared the group’s “unofficial/official” Chaplain.
Here are the winter/spring 2015 Chicken dinner Dates; 2/1, 3/1, and 4/12 (please note the change for April due to Easter). We really need people to come out to eat chicken in order for this giving to continue. Remember to say thanks to these folks as you pass through the dinner line or see them serving in the dining room. See you at St. Ignatius!
From Rev. Ron Loughry, Executive Director of FCHUM
