The Ministry of Missions reaches out in love to the community & the world through involvement in: UM Women, Meals On Wheels, Visitation of New Members in Community & Various Conference Ministries.
The goal of the Mission Team is to raise funds that can be given to various charities and individuals in need. We raise funds through "Second Mile Giving" pledges and various fundraising events.
The Mission Team also sponsors the "Souper Bowl Sunday" lunch to raise money for the Society of St. Andrew.
We are now making plans for the annual Harvest Festival.
We will also be sponsoring children for this year's Festival of Three Kings, which
provides a Christmas party and presents for children in need in our area.
In the past, the Mission Team has made donations to the Jimmie Hale Mission, Salvation Army, The Foundry, Heifer International, UM Children's Home, BabiesFirst, Presbyterian Orphanage, Urban Ministry, Southwest Center, UMCSC, localnursing homes, Society of St. Andrew, missionaries Tim and Carol Crawford, HomeMission Fund, and the health rooms of 3 local schools.
We are thankful to church members and others who have supported our fundraising efforts. It is through their generosity that we are able to help those in need.
