District Ingathering Kits:  UMCORE

Remember, it is that time of the year to be gathering and making our various ingathering kits.  There is a list of all items needed HERE.  Kits need to be at the church by the end of October.  Check the newsletter for the exact date.



Hope United Methodist Church is a mission-minded church committed to sharing our resources with those less fortunate in our community, in Iowa, in the United States, and around the world.  In 2013 our church generously supported:

• Missionaries Larry and Jane Kies

• Pastor’s discretionary fund for local needs as they arise

• Upper Des Moines

• Bidwell-Riverside Center, Des Moines

• Flood buckets for US disasters

• Church World Service

• Thanksgiving Ingathering kits

• Disaster in the Philippines

• Imagine No Malaria (nets)

• Special offerings

These and other miscellaneous mission giving totaled over eleven thousand dollars.  We respond to Jesus’s calling, “For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was in prison and you visited me.”  (Matthew 25: 35-36).
