Global Mission

  Missions Chair ~Kathy Littrell
 
   Our global mission is the “$1/Member Campaign” for the Clergy Support Initiative in the United Methodist Church’s North Katanga-Tanganyika-Tanzania area of Africa. Most of the pastors receive less than $30/month as salaries. They live in parsonages that collapse in storms. They must divide their energies between survival of their household and the needs of the communities they serve.
Missions 1
   The initiative aims to provide clergy with wages of $100/month for full-time pastors, help with housing and continuing education.

   You can help by giving to the“$1/Member Campaign” in the month of September. No gift is too small. If each member of CUMC would give $1 we could improve the circumstances of these pastors and help them with basic needs: food, housing, health care, and school fees for their children. These pastors are bringing the word of God to the people. We can partner with them to help! How awesome is that? Place $1 in an envelope and put it in the offering plate marked $1/Member or place $5 or $10 in the envelope. This initiative has been approved by the UMC and we know the money will go to Clergy Support!

   Thank you again for supporting missions!
