Our Missions Team seeks out opportunities to improve the lives of our church family and our surrounding community. Many of our missions projects focus on collecting items such as shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child to creating Love Bags for the homeless. We also love to help improve the landscapes and interiors of homes in disrepair. Please contact the church if you or someone you know could use our help in completing a need or repair in our community.
MISSIONS TEAM NEWS
SUMMER MISSION TRIP – JULY 2019
As you may remember, we are gearing up for CUMC’s Summer Mission/Building Trip. July 21st-26th is the Mission/Building Trip to Plymouth, NC. We will be working alongside Coastal Carolina Rebuilding Ministry to help families that need home repairs. This will be the third year that we have worked with Coastal Carolina Rebuilding Ministry, and every year we have come home with so many blessings. We need people that are not necessarily master carpenters, but people who are willing to hammer a nail, work on a roof, use a paintbrush, and join in other experiences that will become available. Please pray about this opportunity, and if you feel like God is wanting to use you in mission work, here is your chance. Ages from high school through the young at heart are welcome to be a part of this Mission/Building Trip. Sign-up sheets are available in the Sanctuary. The cost is $250 per person. All money and information sheets need to be returned to the church office no later than July 7th. If you need some assistance with the cost of the trip, please talk to Bob Blake or Pastor Jill, and they will see what the church can do to help. Please do not let the cost factor keep you from going. If you are unable to go and would like to donate to help defray costs, please mark donations to the “Summer Mission Trip.” There will be short meetings after each Wednesday Night Meal on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays in June and July for anyone interested in the Summer Mission trip. If you have any questions, please talk to Bob Blake or Bruce Shuping.

CAPSTONE RECOVERY CENTER –
Capstone Recovery Center is a Christian women’s rehab center started right here in Salisbury few years ago. Capstone is impacting lives for Jesus Christ. Capstone is helping women get clean and that is changing the lives of their families and loved ones. Consider getting involved with them.
Capstone Recovery Center is in constant need of paper goods, canned food, dry-goods, hygiene items, ladies clothing, wholesome books, instructional videos and tapes. Please donate to this mission if at all possible. Please bring the items to church and put in the Capstone tote at the back of the sanctuary.
