AS YOU GO…..MISSIONS & OUTREACH
The Methodist Church has stated its purpose: The mission of the church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. It is our goal at The Plains UMC to encourage and mobilize our congregation to participate in local, national, and global mission and outreach opportunities.
We partner with several local groups such as Good Works homeless ministry by opening the church for the Friday Night Life free meal and Discovery Kids Club and free lunch program in the summer. Also, we serve as a disaster relief and blood mobile site for the local chapter of the American Red Cross. Jackson Area Ministries, Church World Service and Samaritans Purse are other groups that we support. We also have an ongoing emergency food pantry that assists many families in need throughout the community. Special opportunities include events like Vacation Bible school, 5th quarters, and the ice cream social.
