The church is involved in several missions. Please note the following:
JULY/AUGUST MISSION PROJECT
“Nothing but Nets”
The people of the United Methodist Church are being invited to participate with the Nothing But Nets partners to help stop a deadly disease – malaria. In sub-Saharan Africa, a child dies every 45 seconds from this preventable disease. This is a statistic that the world must pay attention to according to Bishop Joao Somane Machado, leader of the United Methodist Church in Mozambique.
“This is not an African issue,” said Machado. “It’s not only for poor countries. It’s global.”
Just $10 buys a bed net, distributes it to a family and provides education on how to use it.
By answering Jesus’ call to “minister to the least of these who are members of our family,” we can beat this awful disease and save future generations. So give a child the opportunity to live a life of health and happiness. Pray. Communicate the need. Buy a bed net. And save a life.
