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 mission for December

-Kathy Littrell, Mission Chair
UMCH White Christmas2 2019
    As we come to the end of another year, we hope you have enjoyed participating in many of the local and global mission opportunities we have highlighted during 2019! With the busyness of December, we would like to offer mission suggestions that you may choose to fit your family and your lifestyle.
   Our church-wide mission is one that all of us can participate in, and that is the United Methodist Children’s Home White Christmas offering. Unfortunately, there are children in our commu
nity who have been abandoned, neglected and left without support. But with United Methodist Childrens Home 2019your offering, we can give them the greatest gifts of all… hope, love and a place to call home. We will have a special offering at CUMC’s Christmas Eve services OR you can donate online at UMCH.net/donate or use the Venmo app @UnitedMethodistChildrensHome. Please remember to bring a donation Christmas Eve or go now and donate online or through Venmo today!
