Madison UMC has a designated mission day on SATURDAY, JANUARY 20th. This is an intergenerational mission opportunity where children as young as 7 years old (must be accompanied by a parent or adult responsible for their care) can join students, parents, grandparents, and other adults at Madison UMC to do the work of the Lord in the Mississippi Delta.
There are four important ways you can PARTICIPATE in this mission:
- (1) PRAY for the missioners, the mission project, and those served;
- (2) SPONSOR the missioners and mission project financially, whether you can go serve or not. If possible, we are requesting each adult missioner (17 years old & up) to pay a $45 per person mission fee to provide construction/ministry funds plus pay for lunch. However, if that is truly a stretch, please contact Carolyn Schussler. Kids/Students 7 years old to 16 years old can go serve without cost if accompanied by a parent or grandparent.
- (3) PREPARE food for the missioners for lunch and snacks; and,
- (4) GO SERVE as a missioner (please sign-up below).
There will be a church van available for church members to ride up together on Saturday morning from MUMC. It is an option to make arrangements to drive up on your own and spend the night at Delta Grace, and it is also possible for you to drive up on your own on Saturday morning.
PLEASE SIGN-UP ASAP with a commitment to serve and what skills you have (see online submission form below). Having a mission budget estimate (based on the $45 fee along with our 2018 Missions budget) and awareness of available skills are crucial to determining the work project(s) that can be done. For more information, please contact team leader Carolyn Schussler (firstname.lastname@example.org).
