Mission Projects

United Methodists are mission oriented and socially conscious. This is important to our faith. We are aware of world events and strive to help those in need.

 

Here's how we at Acushnet-Wesley are working to do our part. If you can contribute, it would be greatly appreciated!

Clean refundable bottles and cans for missions.

Cell phones for the soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Prayer Shawl Ministry- Prayer Shawls are prayed over and given to those who need comfort. Anyone who would like to knit or crochet a shawl and donate it, it will be greatly appreciated. If you know of anyone in need of a Prayer Shawl let us know!

Eye Glasses- We are collecting old eye glasses to be given to those in Third World Countries. Drop them in the box in the meeting room.

Computers for Seniors- We have some computers to give to Seniors in need. Let us know if you know someone that would like one.

Children's Wish List for kid's in Shriners' Hospitals- Collect and bring in your soda can pull tabs.

Greeting Card fronts and Campbell labels, and coupons are collected in containers in the fellowship hall.

Disability Aids- There is a sign up sheet in the fellowship room for anyone who might have any disability aids that they would be willing to lend to anyone in need. Items such as crutches, wheelchairs, walkers, shower seats, toilets seats, tub handles etc, are always in need. Please do not bring them to church as we have no place to store them. If we know of a need we will contact you and arrange to have them picked up.  

 

Our Community Outreach Committee is collecting non-perishable food items which will be given to families in need.  There  is a bin in the Fellowship Hall.

 

 
 
 
 

The United Methodist Women around the country was asked to join in the "United Methodist Women's Umbrella Defense" photo campaign to raise awareness of human trafficking.  The photos will be joined together to form a virtual line of defense around Levi's Stadium on Super Bowl Sunday, February 7, as part of a circle to intercept human trafficking.
 
Acushnet-Wesley United Methodist Women have taken part in the photo campaign.
