Faith UMC is seeking to answer God's call to be a witness throughout our world. From being a Hope Companion in support of a group of orphans in Zimbabwe through Zoe, to our collection of food on a weekly basis for the Montgomery County Food Bank, we have a desire to be the hands, feet and heart of Christ.
Here are some of the missions we have been supportive of in the past year:
The Buddy Backpack Program of Montgomery County
Did you know that one in four children are food insecure in Montgomery County? The Buddy Backpack Program provides nutritious kid-friendly food during the weekend for children who are at-risk of hunger.
Faith UMC is collecting individual packages of tuna fish or chicken, ravioli, chili, mac & cheese, breakfast bars, granola bars, along with shelf stable milk, cereal and soup. We have a collection bin over by the kitchen. Learn more on their website.
Zoe helps orphans and vulnerable children to be secure, healthy, connected and prepared. Zoe is committed to "helping children help themselves" by empowering and enabling them to have skills so that they move from poverty to productivity. Learn more about Zoe here: Zoe Helps.
SAGER BROWN (UMCOR)
Sager Brown (UMCOR) is a supply depot in Baldwin, Louisiana that helps to distribute relief supplies throughout our nation and our world at times of need. Each year, a team from Faith UMC spends a week in organizing relief supplies and putting together kits to be shipped out. At the present time, another depot is being built in Conroe, Texas that we look forward to assisting upon it's completion. Learn more about UMCOR here: UMCOR and Sager Brown.
WATOTO MINISTRY, UGANDA
Watoto is a ministry based in Uganda that rescues orphans and places them in orphanage communities. To promote their ministry, a children's choir of Watoto travels through the U.S. each year to share their story. Each year that they are in the Houston area, Faith UMC hosts this event while providing homes for the choir while they are here.
Additionally each year, we have other mission opportunities that our children, youth, and adults participate in including UM ARMY.
