Mission Projects
MISSION PROJECTS

A huge thank you to all who contributed to the Giving Tree. It was a huge success as every resident at Roosevelt Care Center in Old Bridge received a gift.

The communion offering for February is for Peace for Justice. United Methodists relate to this special Sunday by seeking peaceful solutions, creating and supporting peace-related ministries in their conference, and learning about peaceful, just efforts around the world.

The United Methodist Church, with its historic commitment to peace and justice, can and should provide leadership to this social transformation. The General Board of Church and Society Church holds a non-governmental, consultative status with the United Nations. This status allows us to participate in UN meetings, consultations, and conferences. We recognize and renew our call for social transformation, for the quest to open the doors of opportunity for all, to distribute resources more equitably, and to provide better care for persons in need. Donations for this special Sunday support programs and ministries to educate equip and mobilize actions in support of identified Economic, Health, and Gender Justice Priorities.

The Sunday School with our help will be collecting new or gently used shoes to help a local stroke victim pay for a service dog. Please place pairs of shoes separately in bags. We will then place them in large bags to be delivered to the designated location in town.

On March 2nd Missions will be hosting the 2nd annual Chili Cook-Off fundraiser to support our Lenten project with the Sunday School. We are looking for donations of cornbread for the event. Please see the enclosed flyer for more information about the cook-off.

Thank you for your support for the mission projects of our church.
