Even smaller mission projects can make a big difference in the community. Over the summer members and friends of Mabel United Methodist Church and Newburg United Methodist Church decided to collect school supplies to make sure the staff of the Mabel-Canton School District are ready to welcome students back to class. “The people at our churches believe that to have a strong community, we need to have a strong education program,” Rev. David Stoeger said. “This starts with equipping our teachers for the important role they have in the lives of students. It is a joy to support the teachers and students in our community.” The boxes of donated supplies were presented to district staff and were distributed to teachers before the first day of class.

Back-to-school haircuts can be costly for parents. The youth group at Peace United Methodist Church in Virginia thought of a great way to reach neighbors and help those in need to get a fresh look by holding a treasure sale at the church. The congregation, along with some community members, donated household items, clothing, and other goods to the sale. At the end of the sale, the youth had collected more than $2,000 and purchased more than 100 gift cards for students to use.
