Doing Justice, Loving Mercy, Walking Humbly with Our God
If you have a passion for serving others and being part of something bigger than yourself, join with KUMC in supporting missions at home and abroad!
We describe God in three persons. Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are commonly used to refer to the threefold nature of God. Sometimes we use other terms, such as Creator, Redeemer, and Sustainer.*

August Monthly Mission Opportunity
The Oaks of Righteousness
“They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of His splendor.” Isaiah 61:3
The Oaks of Righteousness is a faith-based living facility, located in Humble, TX, that provides formerly incarcerated women a second chance for a successful and productive life following God’s path.
Currently the Oaks house is full of residents. Even with the Covid-19 shutdown, dedicated Christian staff, mentors, Christian counselors, and teachers continue to pray and teach the women in the 9-12 month recovery program. While living at the Oaks, the residents learn tools for recovery and learn the love and forgiveness of our Lord for each of them. Classes are required each day as the women learn about codependency, relapse prevention, spiritual 12-step recovery, and money management. By graduation, the ladies have received skills to enable them to be successfully employed, know the value of saving, and able to acquire transportation, housing and more.
If you have any questions on how to support this month’s Monthly Mission Offering, please contact Chris Harrison at email@example.com.
