At University City UMC, missions is important to us – we want to help make disciples that transform the world! Through a biblical foundation for Christian service; a balance of local, regional, and international mission opportunities; and an emphasis on hands-on support, our missions team seeks to maximize the positive impact to God’s Kingdom and to see lives transformed.

Christmas Angel Tree: Contact Lindsay Gallegly
Through our partnership with the Harbor Light Southern Baptist Church in Oceana, WV we have the opportunity to help children of low-income families in this small town in Appalachia. Each year this church provides a holiday meal for these families with our assistance. This is an opportunity for our congregation to send our love to the town of Oceana between short-term mission teams which visit each summer. To learn more about this ministry, please stop by the connecting center on Sunday or email Lindsay Gallegly at firstname.lastname@example.org or Lee Zeigler at email@example.com.

In October 2015, UCUMC hosted our first REACH missions event with the hope to enlarge the local, regional, and global missions vision of UCUMC. We want to help the congregation find their place in missions whether it be committing to pray for specific needs of missionaries and agencies, serving with local Charlotte missions, being a part of short-term mission trips, financially supporting missionaries or agencies, or beginning a life of full-time missions locally, regionally, or internationally.
