MISSIONS

“Mission-driven” means we share the love of God in tangible ways in our community & across the world.

Here are some opportunities: 

The Church Has Left the Building
Rather than holding worship services and Sunday School on a designated Sunday in May, the congregation provides a variety of needed services throughout the community.  

Summer Lunch Program
Begun as an outreach to families who participate in the school lunch program, this free mid-day meal has expanded to include fun activities and learning.  Volunteers also deliver meals to three mobile home communities. The program runs Tuesdays and Thursdays from noon to 1:00 throughout the summer.

Capernaum Health Clinic
Started by area churches, this mobile clinic provides free medical and dental care for the uninsured and under-insured multiple times per year in the South Lyon area.  

Valley Below
Our high school mission team, Valley Below, shares the love of Christ in our own hometown.  Youth complete mission projects monthly for local families by doing yard work, home repair, cleaning, and small construction projects.

Active Faith Community Services
Provides long-term and temporary assistance to those who have fallen on difficult times. Offers food bank, clothing closet, utility assistance, case management and counseling.  Members of our church collect items, donate funds, stock shelves, deliver meals, tutor students, and serve on the Board of Directors. 

Liberia Sister Church, Bethlehem Temple

Our church provides assistance with food supplies, agriculture programs, pastor’s salary support, and scholarships for school children.  The John Dean Town (JDT) Health project of Liberia provides clean water wells, traditional birth attendant training, latrines, health education, and immunizations for 18 villages.  Members of our church have done mission trips to Liberia twice to serve the people of of our sister church.

Covenant Missionary - Helen Roberts-Evans

We are proud to sponsor Helen Roberts-Evans, a missionary of the General Board of Global Ministries of The United Methodist Church.  She serves as  director of the Department of General Education and Ministry of the United Methodist Church in Liberia.  Helen was born in Liberia and her return as a volunteer missionary in July 2008 was a lifelong dream.  Her work on staff now includes meeting needs in such areas as teacher training, scholarships, resources, new school construction, and school          building renovation and repair.  

God's Country Cooperative Parish Mission Trip

The God’s Country Cooperative Parish is made up of seven churches located in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.  These churches work together to accomplish great things in this area of isolation and poverty.  Members of our church do a mission trip to GCCP one week of every summer.

Mountain T.O.P. Youth Mission Trip

Our largest youth event is our summer mission trip, Mountain T.O.P.  Our youth share the love of Christ by repairing homes and building relationships with residents of the Cumberland Mountains of Tennessee.  During this week-long mission trip, youth and adult leaders make new friends from all over the country while working, playing games, and worshiping outdoors.  The largest groups to ever serve at Mountain T.O.P. have been from our church. 

Cass Community Social Services

Cass Community Social Services is a Detroit-based agency dedicated to providing food (meals, community garden), jobs (Green Industries), health services (free medical clinics), and housing (shelters, warming centers, & tiny homes).  They truly are living their motto of “Fighting Poverty.
