Missions Update

The Missions & Social Concerns com-mittee of the Willoughby UMC exists to provide and organize mission opportuni-ties for you, the congregation, to be Jesus’ disciples as you provide the resources and manpower to help our community, our country, and our world.

There is currently one vacancy on our team. If you have a heart for the mission of WUMC, we can use your ideas and energy! We meet 6 to 8 times a year and organize mission opportunities such as CROP walk, Angel Tree, support for global missionaries, the local Day of Car-ing, and adult mission trips. To learn more or join this team, contact Mary Huey at 440-227-6391 or mary.huey(at)sbcglobal.net

Looking ahead, we will once again collect new items for babies and young children during Lent in support of the ministry of Lake County Birthright which provides support for young families in need throughout the county. It’s a won-derful opportunity to indulge your “grandparent” instinct to buy or make cute things for little ones. The collection will being Sunday, March 9.

Please continue to bring in your labels from Campbell Soups and other products! We are collecting them to pass along to Red Bird Mission in Kentucky where they are put to good use purchasing supplies for the center and the school.

SAVE THE DATE – Sunday, March 16, 5 PM the Adult Mission Team will host an Irish Dinner Party (with Silent Auction) to raise funds for this summer’s trip to Red Bird Mission. More details to follow!

In closing, if there are “mission” and “social concern” issues that are near and dear to your heart, we invite you to share those so that we can continue to provide meaningful opportunities to you, the con-gregation of the Willoughby United Meth-odist Church. Contact Mary Huey at mary.huey@sbcglobal.net or 440-227-6391 with ideas and suggestions!
