A portion of the operating budget is dedicated each year to Missions work. The committee has a budget of $9,000 to sustain our local missions efforts. In addition, a portion of our apportionments is dedicated to support mission programs and administration of the UMC Conference. Finally, we have some major fund raising events:
Youth Mission Auction: Plain, fancy and sometimes downright weird items are donated to the silent and voice auction each year. We gather for a meal and then the bidding begins. It is an evening filled with laughter and fun and it raises funds for youth work missions projects.
Habitat for Humanity: Our Habitat program support is funded through individual donations solicited in the spring of each year.
Harvest Brunch: Each fall the Missions Committee and the Kitchen Klub present a sumptuous brunch with breakfast and lunch choices. The proceeds of the ticket sales fund missions projects identified each year. In 2009 we were able to purchase a springing heifer for the farm at Mujilla Falls, Zambia.
Mission Support Fund
: Through the generosity of private donors the Missions committee is able to supplement its programs and initiate new efforts.
