One Great Hour of Sharing Inside-Outreach Collection.
Our monthly collection taken during Holy Communion will be accepted to benefit One Great Hour of Sharing, which is used to lay the foundation for all of United Methodist Committee On Relief's work by covering the cost of doing business. This means that all gifts designated to specific programs can go 100% to those programs because UMCOR's basic expenses are covered. Please give.
Arise Church Missions
The Arise United Methodist Church Missions provide support for families in need overseas, here in the United States, local communities and our own Arise congregation. One of our church "Strategic Initiatives" is to do "Meaningful Missions", and "Participate in hands-on missionary work." This missions webpage provides a calender of upcoming Arise missions, a list of missions committee members and contact information and examples of the ways the church provides hands-on support.
