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
2019 has gotten here quickly, and as you are planning your summer activities, do not forget about CUMC’s annual Summer Mission Building Trip to Plymouth, N.C. We will be working for Cross Ministries or Cross Coalition, LTD. This is the third year that we will be working for Cross Coalition, and we will be doing repair work to homes of deserving families. I have found the work in Plymouth to be very rewarding, and I think that if you choose to go, you will also find it to be rewarding.
This year CUMC’s week for our annual Summer Mission Building Trip is set for July 21-26, 2019. The cost of the trip is $250.00 per person. All kinds of help are needed from the best to the least experienced carpenter, cooks, and drivers to gofers. Even if you think that you do not have any of these talents, please reconsider and go with us. You will find out that you have everything to give.
Please look for sign-up sheets in the future, and if you have any questions call Bob Blake or Bruce Shuping. Take the time to talk to someone that has already been on one of these trips, and find out how much the trip meant to them.
ROWAN HELPING MINISTRIES –
Putting God’s Love Into Action
There are opportunities to help Rowan Helping Ministries in many different areas: Reception Desk; Interviewer; Clothing Center; Food Pantry; USDA Food Packing; Loading Dock; 2nd Helping Driver; Meal prep and serving. You can volunteer as an individual or go as a group. Our church provides meals at RHM four times a year. You are always welcome to bring canned and dry good food donations for RHM. We have a bin in the back of the sanctuary for this purpose.
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.
