Mission Activities and Projects

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.

 

Help at Gleaners

Warren First UMC and Volunteers from Green Acres Elementary are pairing to work at Gleaners on October 21,  11 am-12:30 pm.  If you are interested in helping out, contact the church office or Molly Fox, outreach coordinator.

 

Food Drive

 A church wide food drive will be held starting October 27.  Food will be collected at the church and will be distributed to area food pantries for Thanksgiving.

 

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 will be erected in the hallway near the main entrance to be decorated with these donations.  The hand made and purchased winter ware will be distributed to those in need.

 

Layette Project

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.
