March Monthly Mission Project - Each month our church family works together to collect items and funds for a specific mission project, chosen by the Mission Committee & Church Staff. This month, we are supporting the LaGrange Community Nurse's baby and new mom program, as well as Heifer International.
The United Methodist Book of Discipline defines outreach as giving attention to the local and larger community ministries of compassion, justice and advocacy. Every summer, our senior high youth travel to Appalachia to work in teams with the Appalachia Service Project. In recent years, we've also sent multi-generational teams to New Orleans, Haiti, the Bahamas, Henderson Settlement, ASP Flood Relief, and Kenya.
