Our Missions Team explores the expansive understanding we have of our Greenville UMC Purpose Statement:
We envision to grow a loving community while we gather, connect, learn, and serve.
The 2021 Missions Team members are Nick Springsteen (Chairperson), Becky Clark (Secretary), Nancy Finch, Kim Frisbey, Chris Slating, Tammy Youmans, and Pastor Jeff Williams. For 2021, we are scheduled to meet on the second Monday of the month. Check the Church calendar for specific dates.
Each year we invite our congregation to support United Methodist Special Sundays:
- Human Relations Day
- UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief)
- Native American Ministries Sunday
- Peace with Justice Sunday
- World Communion Sunday
- United Methodist Student Day
