Our congregation is involved in mission initiatives locally, across the nation, and internationally. Examples of our local outreach include: Habitat for Humanity, Love’s Cupboard Community Food Pantry, The Eastside Soup Kitchen, Old Town Christian Outreach, The City Rescue Mission and The Underground Railroad. Our Youth Fellowship participate each year in a summer mission trip. Our United Methodist Women do a tremendous amount of mission work on behalf of our congregation. From supporting children and families locally to support of mission initiatives in Haiti and Liberia. Our United Methodist Men’s fellowship take on many hand-on endeavors for the church and community. We have annual Miracle Offerings at Christmas, raising as much as $14,000 for a specific response to the needy. We have a unique program called Community Connectors that supports the public schools with volunteers and additional financial resources as well as offering volunteer support to community groups like the Saginaw Youth Symphony. We support the mission endeavors of the larger United Methodist Church through what are called Apportionments at 100%. We have been actively involved as mentors in Big Brothers/Big Sisters since 2007.
