Current Missions that people at Wesley United Methodist Church Nederland participate in are:
- Third Community Saturdays – Help build a wheelchair ramp or cleanup – Garry Richards & United Methodist Men, and members of the congregation.
- To Methodist Men, Wesley Mission Volunteer group, or anyone wanting to be a part of a small group of volunteers helping with home recovery.We are trying to get people together to help with home recovery work again. A lot was accomplished in the first few days and we thank the many volunteers that began the process of home recovery, but there is still a lot more to do. We have the tools and we have the supplies, now we need to get the group or groups together that can get things accomplished a little at a time. “The harvest is plenty but the workers are few…” sounds real familiar right now. We’d like to have a meeting of any and all people interested in helping with the work and helping to make decisions with what we can do and when we can do it. The meeting is set for Saturday Sept. 30th, at 9:30am at Wesley UMC-Nederland.We have many people in our congregation and in our community in severe need of assistance with this slow process and we need to start addressing how we can be of assistance. This is what we are called to do, so if you or anyone you know would be interested in helping with this, please come by and be a part of small journey on a long road to recovery. Being the hands and feet of Jesus is not only necessary, but also very rewarding.In Christ’s Service,
