MISSIONS AND SERVICE
We believe that one of the ways faith expresses itself is through service, both within and beyond the church. In response to God’s love, below are some of the ways we act on our belief in these ever-changing areas of mission.
Along with 38,000 of our sister United Methodist congregations, we help support hundreds of missionaries and thousands of mission projects across the globe. We also support United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR), which provides direct, immediate support for victims of disaster.
