Mission and Repair Ministry

Mission and Repair Ministry

Throughout the Gospels, Jesus emphasizes that his disciples have to care for the poor and disadvantaged. We have embraced this mission! Utilizing the skills of members of the congregation and friends of PGUMC, we have embarked on a multi-faceted mission and repair ministry. Hopefully you will find a mission project that will fit your desires and skills to serve Jesus through Pleasant Grove UMC.
