Missions

Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me. ~ Matthew 25:40

Middleton Community Church is engaged in a wide variety of mission projects throughout our community and beyond. Through everything we do at Middleton Community Church, we seek to offer help and hope in material and spiritual ways.

Described here are some of the many mission opportunities available through Middleton Community Church. For more information about these or other mission opportunities, please contact our church office at (608) 831-4694 or at mccucc@middletonucc.org .

 Thanksgiving Offering Details

This year’s Thanksgiving offering will go to West Middleton Elementary School, which is seeking to create an after-school program that will allow all students in the school community to participate in fun, safe activities that will build community and enhance their learning.

The West Middleton attendance area includes students from the Elver Park area.  Students from that neighborhood face transportation challenges, substandard housing, and a high incidence of crime.  This program will provide safe, enriching activities for students both from Elver Park and those from other neighborhoods in the school attendance area.

The after-school program will be made up of clubs, each one centered on an area of interest– sports, cheerleading, beading, yoga, nature, etc.  Each club will meet for a six-week session, serving about 100 students each day, Monday through Friday.  After the initial six weeks, students may sign up for a different club.  Staff and volunteers will provide supervision, activities, and homework support.  The school district will provide transportation.  The West Middleton Parent-Teacher Organization will help with supplies.

They hope to raise $23,000 from residents and stakeholders in the school district and west Madison to fund this program for the second semester of the current school year.  They will seek funding from other sources in future years.

Spearheading the fundraising effort is the Middleton Equity Team (MET), a group of community leaders who have been working to overcome barriers in our community and providing opportunities for all citizens to succeed and thrive.  Pastor Jim is a member of the Equity Team.

As well as monetary support, volunteers are also need to help lead or supervise activities.  If you have an interest that you are willing to share, let Pastor Jim know.  He can put you in contact with the program leaders.

Special offering envelopes will be available starting November 19.  Please be generous in your support of our area children.

Thanks from Sandy’s Ministry in Jamaica!

This spring our church sent $1,325 to Jamaica, from designated gifts and the Thanksgiving offering.  It has been received with great gratitude by Sandra Walters, who helps impoverished families in St. Ann Parish, which is where our Jamaican Mission team goes.  The money is being used for building materials to repair the home of Latoya and her children, and to give a partial college scholarship to Justine Grant, who is in her final year at St. Joseph’s Teachers’ College.  Take a look at the photos on the Mission and Stewardship board! 

Thanks from the Philippines!

Last year, members of our church provided funds to a high school on a remote island in the Philippines, so they could install solar power to provide electricity for their new classrooms.  That is now up and running!  Their school principal writes:

“We are proud to say that Concepcion National High School is not anymore behind but is now at par with the city schools in offering the 21stCentury Mode of Learning instruction.  That is once again due to your help.  Classroom instruction has become more lively and dynamic since teachers can now provide updated information using digital projectors hooked on to the internet.  

Above anything else, we thank you for your gift of sustainable renewable energy source. This source of energy for the school was once a dream we taught our students in the classroom. Now we can directly teach them of the best example of energy source that is free of pollution, not hazardous to the environment, and most of all sustainable for the future generation of students.

The 1952 Nobel Laureate for Peace, theologian, and French physician Albert Schweitzer, once said in his lecture and I quote, “The purpose of human life is to serve, and to show compassion and the will to help others”… this message of service and compassion reflects your mission. Your desire to come to the aid of schools and communities who are badly in need made your goal so noble and we are in deep gratitude for this.”
