MISSION TRIP TO PUERTO RICO
The CUMC Mission team is organizing a construction trip to Puerto Rico to help in the hurricane recovery. The trip is planned through UMVIM. Dates January 1/8/2019-1/16/2019. At this time UMVIM is not accepting anyone under 18 ( 18-21 will need a Power of Attorney for the team leaders). It is possible that we will be repairing roofs. Housing could be a local church. There will be no internet, electric or AC. ( Just want you all to have a heads up on these!) The proposed cost of the trip is $1200 ( we're hoping to get it less than that - airfare is an uncertain cost until we order the tickets). Mission funds may be available to assist as well as some fund raising.
We would like to meet with anyone interested in joining the team on Sunday July 29th @ 11:00am after the 10:00 service. IF YOU CANNOT MEET at that time, but are interested, please contact Tom or Donna.
We have sent teams to West Pittston after a flood, Atlantic City, NJ, after hurricane damage, and Tuscaloosa, AL for tornado relief.
There have been youth mission trips to Michigan, New Hampshire, West Virginia as well as a number of others. We hosted a Group Workcamp right here in Honesdale in 2007. This organization brings groups of youth into an area to do small repairs, build wheel chair ramps, etc.
We support the local food bank, supply new backpacks already filled with necessary supplies for the local school,
and also prepare flood buckets & health kits to go into needed areas after a disaster.
Recently, we went on a Mission trip to help ease the devastation in Houston, TX,
after providing over 140 flood buckets to the area immediately after the flood.
God has blessed us all and we choose to share those Blessings with others in need.
Our Mission Team has built a "Blessing Box", located on the 11th St. Entrance of the Church. It holds items for basic needs, such as food and hygeine products. The purpose is so that the community can have access to these items in times of need or emergency. We are ALWAYS accepting donations to keep our Blessing Box full for those who utilize the products within.
Our summer list includes Tuna, Tuna Helper, Mac N Cheese, Rice Dishes,
Tomato and Chicken Noodle Soup, Spaghetti sauce in Cans only NO GLASS
Pasta, Crackers, Bottled Water, Small Coffee Containers, Canned Tomatoes
Small Juice Containers,
