The United Methodist Denomination’s Rainbow Covenant plan asks us to support mission projects within our local area and radiate outward to projects in our district, conference, nation, world, and include the partial support of a missionary. This giving is over and above our apportioned giving to the United Methodist Church. 100% of all money donated goes directly to these projects.
Our current projects include:
Local – the Joseph Buckles Scholarship, currently given to Sarah Casey, who is from our congregation and is attending Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary
District – Child Serv // Read Current Child Serv newsletter.
Conference – Marcy Newberry Association
Nation – Red Bird Mission in Appalachia
United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR)
Mother and Child Immunization Project
Heifer Live Gifts
The missionary we help is Sandra Raasch, serving in Honduras.
The White Band – Sister Church, Trinity UMC in Joliet
Yellow Band – International Children’s Fund.
