Victor UMC Invites You to Summer Ministry With Children

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ:

We hope that you are well and that things are going well in your local church ministry setting.

It is hard to believe we are talking about Summer 2017 but we are! And we would like to include you in the invitation to a local mission opportunity this summer at Victor UMC. We are reaching out to see if you have some people in your local church setting who might want to hear about the opportunity. We have learned that if there are some laity you have that lead such efforts they make the best ones to talk with along with any staff that oversee.

This opportunity involves primary adult leadership and is perfect for those adults to partner with youth (if you are looking for a youth opportunity) and serve together. It is a week-long Monday through Friday (8:30am-1:00pm) commitment in ministry to children elementary age. The weeks we are needing to staff include: July17-21; July 24-28; July 31- August 4.

It is intense and is just as big a commitment as leaving on a mission trip going out of the area to serve. You will be serving children in an under- served community and these children look for consistency in those who come during the week.

There will be a mandatory training for all serving, both adults and youth. This will be scheduled per group and we will work with your schedule.

We would love to meet with you and those you think would like to hear more. The number of people is not our concern, a sense of call is the key. Meeting with us does not obligate you. We will ask for a prayerful decision. Churches with small groups of volunteers are welcome, we can combine groups. We are also happy to accommodate an individual who is senses this as a call to serve. Those serving must love God, love kids and love to serve God.

Please let us know if hearing more is of interest by April 7 by your response to this email. We will then contact you.

We are scheduling these meetings at your convenience to happen by the first week of May.

Together in Christ,
Rev. Pat Gannaway, Pastor
Rev. Debbie Pisor, Minister of Community Engagement
