Missions

As you can see from reading our history, the WUMC has always been very mission-oriented - both locally and world-wide.  This emphasis on missions carries out, in part, the legacy of our church's founder, the Rev. George S. Brown, who was a missionary to native Africans in Liberia from 1837 - 1843, before coming to Vermont as a pastor.

In recent years, we have held indoor yard and bake sales to raise money for the Capstone Community Action's Warmth Fund and for the Lamoille Area Lacing Up for Cancer program, as well as other mission projects.  During our construction phase, we will, by necessity, be unable to hold those sales, but we will continue to support our mission projects by other means as well as continuing such projects as listed below.

Every first Sunday of the month is Food Share Sunday when we collect canned goods and other food items for the Lamoille Community Food Share.  The food is blessed as a part of our regular offering and then delivered by various members to the Food Share.

Every fall we give a donation and collect backpacks and school supplies for area programs that provide these supplies to students whose families are unable to provide for them.

At Thanksgiving and Christmas we collect food for Thanksgiving and Christmas baskets which are given to area families and also purchase gifts for children whose families may find it difficult to provide Christmas gifts for them.  We also support the Lamoille Family Center's Christmas gift program on an on-going basis and have participated in their Diaper Drive.   We have provided hats, socks, boots, coats and gloves to school children in need and have provided Christmas gifts for children and families at the Wolcott school, as well.

We also participate in United Methodist Mission projects such as Imagine No Malaria, World-wide Communion Sunday, disaster relief through the United Methodist Committee on Relief, and other projects the UMC may be sponsoring at one time or another.

Over the years, we have assisted a veteran whose home needed to be remodeled to accommodate his physical limitations, have provided funds to assure that electricity would not be shut off for individual families, provided gas cards, assisted with tax relief, and other individual needs, as requested.  

These are only some of the many mission projects which have been undertaken in recent years.

In addition, three of our members volunteer on a weekly basis at the "Breakfast Are Us" program at the United Community Church in Morrisville, and on occasion some of our members volunteer at the United Community Church's monthly free community dinner.

Keep watch for whatever our next mission emphasis may be and join us in these most rewarding projects.  When your purchase food at a food sale or purchase goods at one of our indoor yard sales, you are participating in these mission projects with us.

On March 1, we presented a check to Captstone Community Action in Morrisville for $650.00 to be used for the Fuel Your Neighbors project to assist with food and fuel for those in need in Lamoille County.

If you have a pastoral care need, you may call or text Pastor Mike at 802-355-9574.
