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
Christ UMC, along with Milford Hills UMC and First UMC will be building a new home in Salisbury with Habitat for Humanity during the months of September, October, and November.
This is a beautiful opportunity for our church to work as one body to share the talent God gave us to help those in need. The family you will be building this home for will be working along side of you, what a wonderful opportunity to show the love of Jesus!
On September 8th and 15th workers from all churches will be needed to work on flooring and framing. After that CUMC will be responsible for workers on 9/29, 10/20, and 11/10 as each church shares in the project. Work also continues during the week if you are available to help the Habitat team. All forms of help, from master builder to clean-up, will be needed to help build this home. Please see Bruce Shuping or Bob Blake for any questions about the work or see Larry Pinkston to find a date that you can help. A sign-up sheet will also be at the back of the sanctuary.
In addition our church will be providing food and drink for workers when we are on site. If you are unable to come to the work site, could you help prepare food and drink for the team? If it just isn’t possible for you to participate in these ways, please consider a donation to help cover food costs. Judy Zirt is organizing the food if you can help. Got to keep those workers hydrated and fueled!!
Please pray for this project and all that will be working at the site. Pray for the family that will be living in this new home and building a new life.
However you choose to take part,

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.
