Other global mission opportunities…
Imagine No Malaria. We are proud to support this dynamic and effective ministry through the global United Methodist Church. Throughout the year, we raise money to aid in the fight against Malaria. Through the education, better medical intervention and the distribution of bed nets, this program has lowered the death rate of this illness by 50% in just a few short years.
Operation Christmas Child This is a great opportunity for families to be in mission together. Each year, just before Thanksgiving, we fill shoeboxes with small gifts, school supplies and other items and donate them to needy children affiliated with Operation Christmas Child. The objective of the program is to demonstrate God’s love in a real and tangible way to children in need. We will collect our boxes in November each year.
