Faith United Methodist Church is very “missions minded”! We contribute to many needs within the community of Coleman, throughout the state, the country and across the globe.
We have a new mission each month that we contribute to. Anywhere from camp for special needs children to helping the hungry. On the third Sunday of each month we have a noisy offering, that is -the congregation opens up their “piggy banks” and gathers up their extra change for the mission of the month.
We support missionaries:
Dr. Chris Hena – who is establishing a medical clinic in the Kakata Farmington district of Liberia.
John and Kendra Enright -who are serving The Kafakumba Training Center and the Pastor’s School in Zambia.
The Smallwoods-serving at Red Bird Mission in southeastern Kentucky.
Once a month, we provide a free meal to those in need. This meal is offered the last Saturday of every month.
One of the strengths of the UMC is that for every crisis across the globe, we are connected to an organization that immediately goes to the affected area to begin restoration. This organization is called
UMCOR – an acronym for United Methodist Committee on Relief. This organization is a long tradition and a well-established entity. Whenever a crisis occurs, we take collections and 100% go specifically to that relief.
We collect articles for local schools, for service men and women and several church wide projects. We gather food for Midland County Food Pantry and for the Food Pantry at the Railway Family Center in Coleman.
Occasionally we have Volunteers-In-Missions teams of 10-12 persons go to serve specific needs within the state and country.
We appreciate all help: physical help, food offerings, financial, or prayer.
