Serve Our Community
Our congregation recognizes that the mission field is everywhere. Our trips, gifts, and work efforts offer all involved the opportunity to learn that compassion requires more than a group of those who "have" giving to those who "do not have." Most every person who participates in mission projects learns quickly that the compassion of Christ can be offered by any person to any other person at any given moment, and that every act of giving is also an act of receiving.
There are many service opportunities for both individuals and groups. If you would like more information, contact Brooke Roskop, or 816-229-8108 ext 139.
Current Mission Projects:
Each month our church focuses on a different mission projects in which we can serve our mission field.
Letters 4 Teachers
Our church wants to Bless in the Mess! Teachers have been on the front lines of working with our young people as everything has looked different this year. We want them to know they matter. We will be writing letters to teachers and support staff of Brittany Hill Middle School to practice being "Present" with others. Will you support us in this mission?
The Community Service League offers a Christmas Store that is opened to families in the Blue Springs area that need a little help making a merry Christmas. Throughout the month of November we will be collecting gift cards listed on our Giving Tree for these families. This is a great opportunity to help area families have a merry and bright Christmas.
First UMC support several local organizations including CSL, Hillcrest, and the BSSD School District.
