International Missions

Heifer International

Heifer does more than just feed people, it helps people feed themselves.  The goal of the Heifer project is sustainability.  Every year our church raises money to send livestock to families in need. In the coming years, those families then pay-it-forward by giving the offspring of the animals away to others in need. For more details or to get involved click the link below!

Vine and Branches India Ministry

Vine and Branches ministry is all about reaching out in the love of Christ to the Dalit people of Mumbai and the surrounding region, providing fresh drinking water wells, churches, and the good news gospel of Jesus Christ.  Dr. Larry Morrison and his wife Cheryl Sanger-Morrison head up this outreach and travel to India yearly to minister to these people in need.

Jesus Film Project

The Jesus Film Project is an organization created by Campus Crusade for Christ to distribute the film "Jesus" not only in English, but in over 1800 languages of the world to reach as many people as possible. This project partners with local churches and Christian organizations to reach the unreached people of our world by having them view the "Jesus" film.  Our friends, Kathy and Brian,  share with us their passion for this organization as they minister around the world.

CROP Hunger Walk

CROP Hunger Walks are community-based walk events held in cities and towns across the United States raising funds to support the global mission of Church World Service, a faith-based organization transforming communities around the globe through just and sustainable responses to hunger, poverty, displacement and disaster. Twenty five percent of the funds raised are returned to the host community to support local hunger fighting efforts.  Contact Larry Smith  for information.

The Gideons International

The Gideons International is an Association of Christian business and professional men and their wives dedicated to telling people about Jesus through associating together for service, sharing personal testimony, and by providing Bibles and New Testaments. While we are often recognized for our work with hotels, we also place and distribute Scriptures in strategic locations so they are available to those who want them, as well as to those who may not know they need them.  MUMC has a strong affiliation with the Gideons and would like to let you know how you can become involved too!

UMCOR

UMCOR is the humanitarian relief and development arm of The United Methodist Church, the United Methodist Committee on Relief assists United Methodists and churches to become involved globally in direct ministry to persons in need. UMCOR works with vulnerable communities to strengthen self-sufficiency and encourage partnerships. UMCOR responds to U.S. and international disasters, addresses diseases of poverty, ministers to refugees and immigrants, provides clean water and actively works to reduce hunger.

Operation Christmas Child

Operation Christmas Child helped more than 10.5 million children in over 100 countries and territories received shoeboxes full of special gifts. And, for the first time, these children heard that God loves them. This has resulted in evangelism, discipleship, and multiplication as many children around the world have never heard the Gospel message of eternal life in Jesus Christ.  This has become a traditional service opportunity for our whole congregation to donate items for these shoeboxes and Radical Roses prepares them to be sent.
