Service to others is foundational and non-negotiable in the life of a Christ-follower. It is through mission and giving oneself away that God truly transforms our hearts. The AUMC College Ministry is dedicated to continually finding ways to spur one another on to greater action and love. Each summer we spend a week serving in another country. There are several local mission days throughout the school year. We also visit a local retirement home each month. A group of students tutors elementary school kids at a Loachapoka school each week. We have students who serve in ministries around AUMC. Join us in following the example of Christ and serving those in need!
***We are planning on sending several teams to do hurricane relief over the next year. Let Duff know if you’d like to go!***
December Hurricane Relief Trip
The Wesley Foundation is leading this trip and working with UMVIM to do basic home mucking and repair. December 16-21, 2017 are the dates for the trip. The location will be finalized once the team is finalized and UMVIM can assess where our skills and team will be best utilized. Cost is approximately $50. Please contact David Fischer (dsl0007) or Megan Swanson (mcs0055) if you have any further questions. Applications for the trip are available at Wesley or Nick’s office.
All fundraiser proceeds go to the AUMC College Ministry Missions Fund, which helps reduce the cost of international mission trips. These trips are times of incredible growth in the lives of college students because they often are a student’s first glimpse of life outside of how they grew up. Experiencing this while showing God’s love and compassion yields powerful insights into how we live every day. Your financial support empowers this!
The inaugural On Par With Missions golf tournament at Indian Pines Golf Course was an amazing success! We raised enough money to cover one person’s fee for a Panama trip. Everyone loved their time on the links and is excited to build it up next year!
