Concern and Action Ministry Team

The Concern & Action Ministry Team puts faith into action through programs to address social and cultural challenges, including: poverty, discrimination, mental illness and environmental stewardship.

Through local mission work and education, we strive to incorporate John Wesley’s three simple rules, including

1. Do no harm

2. Do good

3. Stay in love with God

Our ministry team is focused on spreading God’s love in our community and congregation while demonstrating Open Hearts, Open Minds and Open Doors to all people.

For more information, please contact Heather Baker at 920-954-6971.

 

 

Local Missions

Adult Mission Trip

Volunteers in Mission (VIM) usually travel in the fall for a week of mission work. In 2018 the VIM team went to UMC Pine Lake Camp in Wisconsin where we worked on the camp grounds, and buildings. If you would like to find out more information about the next adult mission project, talk to Jeff or Shelby Knezel, 920-734-1001.  To see a powerpoint of the 2019 Mission trip play the video below.

Connectional Missions

Through The United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) we are in mission with God’s people here in Wisconsin, in the United States and around the world. We have sent boxes of supplies to Russia and Sierra Leone; raised funds to help eradicate malaria as part of Imagine No Malaria, shared in relief efforts for victims of tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes, and floods. Through the General Board of Global Ministries (GBGM) we provide on-going support to Mbwizu Ndjungua who, with her husband Nkemba, serves as missionary in Camaroon.
