Missions Giving Report
We believe in these words of Archbishop Desmond Tutu, himself paraphrasing a longer statement by St. Augustine: “Without God, man cannot. Without man, God will not.”

The first quarter of 2018 has been extraordinary as we have collected and disbursed almost $13,000 to mission projects.

Our Christmas Offering, in the amount of $7,334, paid for BUMC’s Habitat for Humanity contribution to Apostle’s Build. Additionally, we helped another church with a portion of their contribution to this cause.

We also collected more than $5,000 for UMCOR with disbursements to Disaster Relief, and the Special Sundays for Human Relations Day and UMCOR Sunday.

Almost $300 was given to the Brookside Food Pantry for the dinner we served in March.

The generosity of our church congregation in giving to these important causes can be felt locally, nationally and worldwide. We have set ourselves up for a great year of mission and service!
