Our Mission Statement:

We are Christians engaged in ministry to our community, the nation, and the world.

ACTC Collection Schedule for 2016

- The November collections are Peanut Butter (18 oz.) Jelly, Rice, and Cereal
- Also, we will be collecting monetary donations to purchase gift cards for perishable
  items. Please put cash in the envelopes in the pews marked "Thanksgiving Baskets"
  or make a check payable to LRUMC and mark the memo "ACTC."

Send a Christmas Blessing

Send your church family a group Christmas card and donate the money you
would have spent on more cards to Lifewater Canada. Last year the money
raised helped provide clean drinking water in towns where people had
previously died from water related disease. Just sign one card and post it
on the big board in the arcade, starting the 1st week in December. Make your
donation by using the envelope in your pew marked "Christmas Cards."  Checks
should be made payable to LRUMC, and put "Missions" in the memo section.
Thanks for being a blessing to others.
 
We also support the mission at Essex UMC and the Board of Childcare.
  • The collection of hotel/travel size toiletries for Essex UMC is ongoing.
    There is a box for these items on the hospitality desk.
