Change The World

UPCOMING OPPORTUNITIES

Project Transformation

Is a ministry that connects young adults in purposeful leadership and ministry to underserved children and families and connects churches to their communities in need. During the summer, children gather at churches with college interns as their leaders. In the mornings, the children spend their time reading or being read to by volunteers from local churches. We will be looking for volunteers this Summer during two designated weeks, to go to Casa Linda UMC and work with the children, Monday-Thursday, 9:30-Noon. Watch for more details.

Nothing but Nets

In the poorest parts of the world, where effective window screens are lacking, insecticide-treated bed nets are arguably the most cost-effective way to prevent malaria transmission. One bed net costs just $10 to buy and deliver to individuals in need. One bed net can safely last a family for about four years.

Fair Trade Coffee

When you purchase Equal Exchange coffee, tea,and other products, you join a network that enables farmers in Latin America, Africa, and Asia to stay on their land, support their families, plan for the future, and care for the environment. Through Fair Trade we can create a more equitable world.

Youth Mission Trips

Our Junior High and High School Youth Groups travel to different locations to help rebuild and repair homes for those who do not have the resources to make the repairs themselves. Youth are welcome to join our team. Contact Sara Orr

Food Banks

Since we share communion with each other each first Sunday of the month, we also share a meal with those in need. You may bring canned goods and/or staple food products for delivery to area food banks.
