Missions- Part of our mission statement is to minister to others. Different groups in our church are always looking for ways to implement this part of our mission statement.
Yearly Hog Feed Fundraiser: For several years the Ellinwood United Methodist Church and the United Church of Christ have joined forces to raise money for missions. We have supported the St. John Child Development Center scholarship fund for preschoolers, local food bank and our Commission on Aging to assist with their transportation. A mission trip to Texas to help a couple rebuild after Hurricane Harvey was a great way to share our talents.
United Methodist Women: The UMW has supported several different missions. A program is presented at their quarterly meetings. We have shared resources with the Dream Center, Prairie Godmothers, Days for Girls, Kans for Kids.
Trick or Trunk: Our church family provides a safe and fun place for families to take their children on October 31st every year. This reaches over 300 children and has become a tradition we all look forward to.
FLAME: Our youth were able to assist Ember Hope (Youthville) and New Jerusalem mission in Newton with some remodeling projects. They also do our yearly Christmas shopping for children and families in our community.
