Madison UMC has a designated mission weekend, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 2nd-SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 4th, 2018.
 
Missioners may serve with the team either:​
  • the whole weekend, or
  • for just one day (either Friday or Saturday)
  • Team members are encouraged to stay through Sunday morning to share in worship with Sunflower UMC (who serves as the hub for Delta Grace)
This is an intergenerational mission opportunity where anyone 7-97 years old (18 years old and under 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 $5 per person per day for meals. There is no mission fee for Kids/Students 7 years old to 16 years old accompanied by a parent or grandparent, but we do ask for $5 per kid/student to cover the daily meal cost. 
  • (3) PROVIDE AND/OR PREPARE food for the missioners for meals and snacks. 
  • (4) GO SERVE as a missioner (please sign-up below).

Transportation will be determined based on availability of church vans and the number of people who sign up, so please sign up ASAP! You can also drive up on your own or carpool.

PLEASE SIGN-UP ASAP (but NO LATER THAN OCTOBER 15, 2018) with a commitment to serve and what skills you have (see online submission form below). The number of team members who sign up along with skill levels we have available and including the financial support we obtain helps determine the work projects we can do.

Having a mission budget estimate (based on the $45 per day 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 (cschuss093@gmail.com).
