Lots of Missions, Lots of Service
Happenings at SUMC
Swansea UMC is participating in many missions. Join as many as you can!
Children’s Ministry: Perhaps you’ve seen all the “construction” going on in the old fellowship hall in the basement. SUMC received district grant funds to purchase new educational materials, new technology, and to upgrade the physical facilities for our children. The purpose: to provide our children resources and spaces to become young disciples for Jesus Christ.
Salkehatchie: Our older youth continue to be models of Christian service through the Salkehatchie mission. Each year the youth (including those in college) spend a week doing hard, physical work repairing homes for people in need. The purpose: to do God’s work by helping others.
NETWorX: This mission, called Pathways to Prosperity, will provide instruction and means for those in need to rise above and out of poverty. Some of you attended the introductory information session given by Dr. Alan Rice. There are many ways for all of us to serve. You will continue to receive information about this mission. The purpose: to provide means and personal support for bringing people out of poverty.
Holy Communion will be observed October 2nd during the worship service.
November 20th during the worship service with George and Cindy Tifft. Big music event! Plan to attend and bring friends! Covered dish following the worship service.
