June 2017 - Advent UMC

Extending the Table Offering for July

Extending the Table Offering on July 2nd to support Mission Guatemala

The Class of 2017 is preparing for their mission to Guatemala to serve with Mission Guatemala. The mission is scheduled July 29-August 6. Mission Guatemala is an UMVIM site that works in the highlands of Guatemala to help meet the basic needs and improve the quality of life of the under-served and impoverished Guatemalan people. They are passionate about health, education and nutrition.

Our July Extending the Table offering will provide SHOES for the Christmas baskets that Mission Guatemala gives each year! Please bring CROC or Flip Flop styled shoes for children ages 3-10 on Sunday, July 2. Monetary donations are also appreciated.

Thank you in advance for helping with this awesome mission!

Volunteer to Build with Homes of Hope

Our Christmas offering in 2016 was given to Homes of Hope through the South Carolina UMC Poverty Initiative. Advent’s offering will help specifically with the Men’s Ministry of Homes of Hope. This amazing ministry offers a second step for men recovering from addictions. Through the ministry, men live in community, participate in Bible study and also learn skills through the building of homes that earns them a certification from Greenville Tech. Homes of Hope has invited us to help with the building of the homes that our Christmas offering will help build!

Dates for the build include June 22, 23 & 24; July 6, 7, 8, 13, 14, 15, 20, 21, 22, 27, 28, & 29; August 3, 4 & 5 and September 2.

Please use this sign up to let us know if you can join us! Volunteers must be 16 years or older. Thank you!   Sign-up to Volunteer!
