Mission Team Vision Statement

“I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you gave me clothing, sick and you took care of me, in prison and you visited me.” 

 

(Matthew 25: 35-36)

 

      As the Mission Team of the Endwell United Methodist Church, we believe we are called to be the hands and feet of Christ in our church, in our community, and in the world!  We believe we are called to serve boldly in this world, not just in our community with our ongoing mission outreach programs but at both the national and international level as well.  In short, our ‘mission” is to help whoever is in need, wherever there is need in whatever way we can.  Our recipients don’t need to be Methodist nor even Christian.  They only need to be people crying for help.  We are proud to be part of a congregation that enthusiastically believes in and generously supports our missions.

     Our Missions Partners include the Congregation, our Youth Group, Sunday School Classes, Mens Group, our Choir and the United Methodist Women.
