National/International MissionsNational/International Missions

     John Wesley said it best "All the world is my parish".  Our committee focuses on being open to the world around us by providing opportunities for mission experiences, sharing the mission story with others, communicating mission needs to our congregation, and exploring ways to be a true disciple of Jesus Christ. 

     The National and International Missions Committee meet on the 2nd Monday at 7:00 p.m. of each month in the Parlor at FUMC.  We welcome anyone to join in our monthly discussions.  

     Visit our missions blog! It is the best way for you to stay up-t-date with where our church is serving both nationally and internationally. 


NOVEMBER 2020 Monthly Mission Focus

The November Mission has been designated by our Local Missions Committee to support Housing Opportunities, which provides housing for the homeless in Porter and LaPorte Counties.  Their purpose is not to enable people, but to educate, empower, and equip them to get back on their feet as quickly as possible.  Your gift to Housing Opportunities helps break the cycle of homelessness and invest in the future of our community.  If you would like to donate to this month's mission effort, you may write "November Missions" on your donation check.  You can also give online through our website, or, if you have offering envelopes, there are special envelopes for the monthly mission.  Thank you in advance for your support!

Please contribute and support our mission teams through our November Mission Focus.   


Make health kits for UMCOR.   Volunteers go to Sager Brown and Midwest Mission Distribution Center each year.   They are always pleased to take items for the various kits that are gathered, checked, assembled and send out through UMCOR disaster relief.  The key is to follow the directions exactly.  

Good Samaritan Sewing Circle    If you can sew, press, cut, or knit, this group is for you.  They meet the 3rd Saturday morning in Tower Chapel from 8:00 - noon.
