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.





The Loose Change Collection for September will go to:

Society of St. Andrew (Gleaning) project

The loose change collected on September 3rd and 10th will go to Society of St. Andrew(Gleaning) project. St. Andrew’s helps volunteers in service in gleaning and bagging fresh produce that would have gone to waste. Each 2 cents will put one serving of healthy food on the table of a needy child or family.

Love Packages (Books for the World)

The loose change collected on the 17th and 24th Sundays will go to Love Packages (Books for the World). This organization collects and distributes Bibles and Christian literature all over the world. One pastor in South Africa wrote: “Thank you very much for the 20 TON container of Bibles and books. We are most grateful for your generosity and for all the hard work in making this possible.” The money we collect goes toward the shipping costs for this material.

Thank you for your generosity of $365.02 given to our Loose Change in July and in August the children collected $241.38 in change.


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.
