MUM in Mission

MUM Mission Outreach December 2019 - December 2020

Throughout the year MUM's Holy Hands quilters give several people warm "hugs" from MUM in the form of prayer quilts blessed during worship servIces as well as hand sewn bears for new babies.

 Our Outreach Ministry provides 6 dinners a year for the people at the EECM shleter in East Liberty. Different groups from the church prepare, serve and sometimes donate the meals in February, April, June, August, October and December. 

Our Christmas Offering of $2,337 was divided among UMCOR Material resources, Bethany House Academy, and our missionaries in Africa.

The UMW raised money for missions through the Pecan sale and Apple Pie Sale.

In December, Outreach ran a coat drive for coats and cold weather gear which were given to the GC Pantry in January 2020.

MUM Cares

Our Outreach Team collects donations of food and supplies on the first Sunday of each month for the Garden City Food Pantry. What a joy to see our shopping cart overflowing each month. Through the changing conditions this year, we have greatly increased our monetary donations to the pantry (especially when we were unable to meet at church) and have contributed money to the Pitciarn Food Pantry, in addtion.
