MISSIONS

At First Washington UMC, we live by the words "what breaks Jesus' heart is breaking ours. " Many people think of the word mission as being far, far away and it is. We also believe missions happen in our own back yard.  With God's help we are looking for those opportunities to not just talk about it but really DO SOMETHING about becoming invested in the lost, weary, and the weak of this world.  We have mission ideas lined up for children's ministry, youth ministry, family ministry, and adult ministry.  Currently, we are serving a local elementary school through our Community Garden.  We are investing in those who work and who are coming to Loving Hearts Outreach and the Homeless Task Force. We will be investing in blessing bags for the homeless and will be participating in Operation Shoebox to reach out to those children around the world who may not receive a present this Christmas.  We will be taking some adult mission trips with Puerto Rico and Alaska as possibilities next year. The mission of God's church is to love God and to love neighbor.  We at First Washington invite you to participate with us in doing both.  

OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD

First Washington will be participating in Operation Christmas Child this year.  For 25 years, Operation Christmas Child have collected shoeboxes filled with gifts and have delivered them to children around the world.  Each box is an opportunity for a boy or girl to experience the love of God in a tangible way and hear the Gospel.  We are currently collecting items.  If you would like to donate an item or a complete shoebox, you may do so by stopping by our office from 8 am to noon Monday- Friday or bringing to church with you on Sunday.  You can make a huge IMPACT on a child this Christmas and share God's love with someone you may never ever meet.
