“FALL INTO MISSIONS WITH ORONO UMC!”
The OUMC Missions Board invites you to be involved in any of the following mission opportunities this autumn. Listed are opportunities to make God’s loving presence known to those who are in need of help through our gifts of time, talents and finances. For more information, contact our mission board chair-John Maddaus or Pastor Steve by calling the church (866-4605.)
- Help prepare and deliver a meal for the Bangor Area Homeless Shelter on one or more of the following dates: October 20, December 15. We will meet in the church kitchen at 2pm.
- We are raising funds to send to the Lela Family Home Orphanage in India so they may provide clothing and a Christmas Party to the orphans. We need to mail our donation by Thanksgiving; any checks may be written to Orono UMC with “Orphanage” on the memo line.
- In late November/early December we will collect Christmas gifts for Crossroads Ministries in Old Town.
- Pray for Lillie Mayfield as she spends the next 7 months with Global Citizen; Lillie is in Penipe, Equador working with orphans and those who are disabled.
- More opportunities coming this winter: the youth group and adults from our church will work with other UM churches to serve hot chocolate and give away free socks outside in Bangor once per month in December, January and February. Also, a fund raising dinner for “Stamp Out Malaria” will take place. Details to come!
