Mission of the Month

You Are God's Co-Worker in Missions

                                                -Kathy Littrell, Missions ChairRed Cross
 
What a joy it is to be working with God! We collected over 150 books and a huge box of school supplies for the EXCEL Center and the Shoe Box supplies are overflowing! Thank you to everyone who contributed to these two projects!
 
  This month we have two more mission opportunities- one local and one in the global community. Our local mission for the month of September is the Red Cross. We will be hosting the Mary Shaw Ozier Blood Drive on Wednesday, September 19 from 2:00-7:00pm in the gym. You can help in the following ways:
Take a poster to a business to help advertise
 
Volunteer to help set up Tuesday/Take down Wednesday
 
Volunteer one hour during the drive         
 
Donate Blood!
   This is an awesome way to serve our community AND honor the memory of Mary Shaw Ozier’s desire to give back to those who donated blood for her.
 
   You may call/email Kathy Littrell to volunteer or to ask any questions at 256-654-6398 or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
 
  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!
