Mission Matters At Chapel Hill

The Mission Statement of the Missions Ministry Team is:

“To educate and ignite a desire in our Congregation to actively do Christ’s work locally, nationally and globally.”

Are you a person whose life has been changed by your service as a mission volunteer? As the Albion District of the UMC comes to a close, they are seeking a legacy in the form of an Albion District Scholarship for Volunteers in Mission (V.I.M.). District funds will be used to match individual donations to form a scholarship fund. If you are interested in supporting this effort, please indicate Albion VIM Scholarship on your envelope,
check or electronic giving memo line.

Elementary School Backpack Program

The Riverside Neighborhood Weekend-Backpack Food Program is serving both Riverside and Minges Brook elementary schools – and working with Central Christian Church. We are currently serving 60 children each week. You may shop and donate - or designate giving to the ‘Backpack Program’.

Here’s the list of what is used:

  • microwave or boxed mac and cheese
  • canned soup, ravioli, spaghetti, etc.
  • cereal – regular and single-pack boxes
  • granola, Nutri-grain and other snack bars
  • fruit cups – light syrup or in own juice
  • instant oatmeal packets
  • juice boxes – 100% juice preferred
  • peanut butter – snack cups or jars
  • pudding or gelatin snack cups
  • single-serve packed snacks
  • applesauce, single serve cups – plain
  • ramen packets or bowls

Look for a well-marked collection container in the upper level hallway. Want to volunteer? Indicate your interest on a Connection Card!
