Doing Justice, Loving Mercy, Walking Humbly with Our God

Micah 6:8

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!

Monthly Missions Opportunities

Each month, the missions committee brings a ministry to the congregation’s attention to support. We prayerfully choose organizations in need of funding that will also provide service opportunities through which we can experience and share the love of Christ.

August Monthly Mission Opportunity: Prison Ministries

Prison Ministry has been a long-standing tradition in the missional life of KUMC. In fact, we finished a Kairos on death row this past month. What a beautiful expression of bringing the light of Christ into the darkness. While we often highlight Kairos Men’s prison ministry, two walks are coming up that need to be filled with faithful stewards to serve inside and out.

During our August MMO, we are highlighting the arms of prison ministry that you don’t often hear about. For example, a group of women goes in weekly to lead ongoing bible studies and Kairos-like weekend retreats called Epiphany for juvenile inmates. These are many opportunities to get involved and bring the life-giving message of Christ to those who need it most. If you are interested in learning more, join us in the Parlor immediately following worship on August 7th to learn about getting involved.
