Central UMC supports almost 20 local missions and nonprofit organizations with our missions budget, but how can we, as individual church members, make a difference? To help, each month we will spotlight a ministry that we support and give you ways that you can get involved.
An update on Missions
-Kathy Littrell, Mission Chair
What a load of shoes we collected! CCC and NCC were not accepting donations at this time and recommended we check with Hands across Decatur. They were thrilled to receive the shoes! In fact when we delivered to them, a client was barefooted and was in need of a pair! Thank goodness for your donations… You have blessed many people who are in need in our community. Thank you!
Our missions team has been pondering how to help others during the pandemic. We missed out on the Christmas in July ornaments since our building was not open, we hated to ask for food items which would require people to visit stores, and clothing items are not being accepted at this time at most places. Ugh! What to do?
Wait… you can and do help when you tithe to the church! Every time you give to CUMC, part of your donation goes to missions! YEA!
Listed below are the organizations that receive money from our church each quarter:
PACT (Parents and Children Together)
Meals on Wheels
Habitat For Humanity
NCC (Neighborhood Christian Center)
Mental Health Foundation
Community Free Clinic

We appreciate every penny and encourage each of you to consider giving your tithe or increasing your tithe during this difficult time! Our church missions helps so many people in so many places! God has blessed us richly and we can bless others! He takes our offering and doubles it! Give a blessing and receive so much more! Thank You!
