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.

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.
