The mission ministry of The First United Methodist Church of Warren is involved, engaged, and inspired! We interpret missional needs locally and abroad. We raise funds for mission projects and personnel in southeast Michigan and around the world. We also provide opportunities to learn about ministry and mission projects and schedule regular days to serve in the metropolitan Detroit area.
Hat, Mitten, and Scarf Tree
Free yarn is available to be used to knit/crochet hats, mittens, and scarves for the annual Hat, Mitten and Scarf Tree. In December the tree is erected in the hallway near the sanctuary to be decorated with these donations. The hand made and purchased winter ware is distributed to those in need.
Although the layettes are collected at the church building only in the late winter to early spring, we encourage everyone to pick up articles year round that can be used to assemble them. Keeping knitting, sewing, and crocheting blankets and booties. Watch for sales on sleepers, outfits, onsies, bottles, and diapers. Layettes are assembled from these donations on Mother’s Day weekend and distributed to new mothers in need.
