Concerns and Action Ministry Team

The Concern & Action committee puts faith into action through programs to address social and cultural challenges, including: poverty-discrimination, mental illness, and environmental stewardship
This team bring the social issues of our local and wider communities to the church’s attention. We respond to these issues according to members’ understanding of faith in action as well as the Social Principles of The United Methodist Church. For more information or to get involved, please contact Heather Baker, 920.954.6871.

Local Missions

Be part of the “Loaves and Fishes” crew to prepare an evening meal. Share your building skills with Habitat for Humanity. Walk in the CROP Walk in October. Weed at Riverview Gardens. Look for notices in the newsletter and bulletin for ways to be in mission locally. And, contact Pastor Jayneann McIntosh with mission ideas.

Adult Mission Trip

Volunteers in Mission (VIM) usually travel in the fall for a week of mission work. In 2016 the VIM team went to Little Rock, Arkansas where we worked on homes, in yards, and in community ministry projects. If you would like to find out more information about the next adult mission project, talk to Jeff or Shelby Knezel, 920.734.1001.

Connectional Missions

Through The United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) we are in mission with God’s people here in Wisconsin, in the United States and around the world. We have sent boxes of supplies to Russia and Sierra Leone; raised funds to help eradicate malaria as part of Imagine No Malaria, shared in relief efforts for victims of tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes, and floods. Through the General Board of Global Ministries (GBGM) we provide on-going support to Mbwizu Ndjungua who, with her husband Nkemba, serves as missionary in Camaroon.
