1 Corinthians 16:14 NASB
Mission giving in our community and beyond our local church is important to us. We are a medium sized church with an average attendance of 180 in our combined worship services. We provide financial help to local organizations throughout the year such as:
Faith in Action
...and many other organizations within the Methodist Conference and beyond.
Rev. Delbert Groves and his wife Sandy are our new missionaries!
Rev. Groves is a United Methodist missionary with the General Board of Global Ministries based in Kitwe, Zambia. His wife, Sandy is also a missionary; they serve at the New Life Center.
The center, established in 2001 through Delbert and Sandy’s efforts, has grown into a resource for the young United Methodist Provisional Conference of Zambia. It has numerous outreach ministries, including New Life Press, health education, PET Zambia, a computer lab, English instructions in new church construction, and other training ministries.
Addition information is available online at . The couple also hosts volunteer-in-mission work teams.
KIDS IN MISSION
The Kids in Mission Loose Change for November will go to Lessie Bates Davis Neighborhood House. Lessie Bates Davis Mission is “improving the lives of the children, families and elderly persons throughout the greater East St. Louis community.” Every penny helps those in need.
Thank you for your generosity of dollars (total not yet available) given to loose change in October. The money will go toward postage for Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes.
Rev. Delbert and Sandy Groves are the United Methodist missionaries we help support in Zambia, Africa. Rev. Groves reflects on his work in Africa as “Christ not only saves us from our sinful, selfish nature, but He heals the body and mind so we can discover all that He has for us to live out a new life filled with purpose and hope. I love watching God work!”
Delbert and Sandy have four adult sons: James, Nicholas, Seth, and Nathan, three daughter-in-laws: Kellie, Lisa, and Amanda, as well as four grandchildren: Charles, William, Taylor, and Del.
