Missions Team

Leader: Mary Cole

The Mission Statement of this team is "to promote awareness for the needs and programs of institutions; supported by the Church locally, nationally and around the world."

There are currently eleven active members that participate in monthly meetings, at which time we discuss information and requests received via mail or word-of-mouth. Most requests describe the financial needs of individuals and/or organizations.   We work within a budget supplied by the church, and disperse funds according to what we feel is the greatest need at the time. 

Each month we highlight a special mission need. Any monies donated are then matched by the mission ministry team to support that cause.

We have several other phases to our ministry. These include Backyard Missions, an emergency fund used to assist individuals or families needing financial help for necessities; Food for Friends, wherein we oversee the gathering of foodstuffs for the Friendly Kitchen in Dunkirk; Helping Hands, wherein a team of committed individuals do home repairs; and Mission Teams, which journey to other parts of the U.S. to work and repair damage in homes caused by natural disasters.

We welcome new members to our team.  We usually meet the second Tuesday of the month at 6:30 PM in the DeLand room of the church or at the Parsonage.
