Missions

Welcome.  Currently there are 29 active mission efforts within the Church ranging in scope from local to international. CSUMC is an enabling body of believers when it comes to missions. For those who are lead to participate, or start a new mission group, we welcome your participation.  Your ideas based in scripture and that Glorify God, for new or expanded mission work are welcome! 

The administration of Missions within CSUMC is structured to allow efficient flow of information.  Individual Missions report to the Mission Team Chair, who are overseen by our Ministry Chair.   

 It is the goal of the Mission Team to:

  • Continue to increase the Congregation’s awareness of the various missions
  • Increase the Congregation’s support of our Missions’ field financially by continual giving or participation in special fund raising events
  • Reach a level of funding that would enable full funding of most if not all of our wonderful Sponsored and Supported Missions. 

Below is a listing of the current Missions. As a work in progress, here are summaries of and information on our Missions. Please click on the hyper-linked titles for more information.  As you read about the various Missions, we hope you are called to help.  Please feel free to contact the Mission Leader or the Church’s Mission Chair.
