Mission of the Month
How Can I Help
Central UMC supports almost 20 local missions and nonprofit organizations with our missions budget, but how can we, as individual church members, make a difference? To help, each month we will spotlight a ministry that we support and give you ways that you can get involved.

Local/Regional Mission 

Wesley Foundation at UNA

 -Kathy Littrell, Missions Chair
  The Wesley Foundation at the University of North Alabama is a United Methodist Campus Ministry that provides opportunities and programs for all students and campus-related persons.

   The Wesley Foundation strives to 1) provide a home away from home for students 2) raise up Christian leaders on campus and 3) Meet the physical and spiritual needs of students by providing free meals and free Bible studies. They encourage student participation in the planning of activities from Christian Retreats to social events including bowling, movie nights, games, day trips and just hanging out!

   We can help by collecting gift cards to fast food places like Chick-fil-A, Taco Bell, Subway, Wendy’s, etc. Remember you can buy almost any kind of gift card at your local grocery store! So next time you are shopping for your family, please take time to purchase a meal card for a hungry UNA student. We will collect cards during the months of June and July. You may place them in the envelope in the Missions Box in the Coffee Nook! Thank you!

Global Mission

Christmas in July

  The Mission Team will be hosting  an ornament party the month of July for the Ornaments 4 Orphans Project.

  Ornaments 4 Orphans is a fair trade social enterprise dedicated to providing critical support for orphans and vulnerable children in Africa. They use ethical and sustainable practices to advance the society by creating jobs, fighting poverty, preserving families, and empowering impoverished communities. 100% of the profits are invested back into the communities they work with through trade and charity.

   The fair trade items they sell are handcrafted by local artisans that are employed by Ornaments 4 Orphans. They pay them a reliable income that provides them with food, housing, clothing, and the medications they need. Because of these efforts and those who support O4O, they are continually improving their standard of living, their education and their future.

   You will LOVE these ornaments! You may check them out on Instagram, Facebook, or their website, Ornaments4Orphans.org.
