112. Easter at the State Fairgrounds – First UMC, Sedalia

Easter

First United Methodist Church in Sedalia worshiped in the Missouri State Fair Mathewson Exhibition Center in order to open their doors to the county.  They met there because their two campuses could not hold all they anticipated attending.  Plus they wanted those who are would not enter a church building on Easter to be comfortable joining in.  MissionCast was on hand to bring you this collage of the Easter worship service.  We interviewed Rev. Jim Downing the day before while volunteers from the church were setting up for the next days service.  About 400 volunteers from the church were employed in various ways to make the move to the State Fairgrounds possible.

74. The Advance Giving Program of the United Methodist Church

AdvanceThe full name for the United Methodist Advance program is “The Advance for Christ and His Church.” The program was created in 1952 as a way to allow Methodists and later, United Methodists, as well as other interested individuals to contribute to specific programs, missionaries, and ministries. Advance giving is often called “second-mile giving” because it goes beyond the “first mile” of contributing to apportionments and World Service Funds.

The Advance is an official United Methodist program that gives you the opportunity to give to the ministry of your choice. From here you can donate in any of the following ways: online, through your United Methodist church, by mail, or by phone.

To locate a missionary or project that you would like to support go to: http://new.gbgm-umc.org/advance/projects/search

30. Christianson Native Craft Festival

Craft FestivalThe Christianson Native Craft Festival has been sponsored by the Office of Creative Ministries for the past 30 years.  It is named after Frances Christianson, long-time member of First United Methodist Church in Rolla.  It was started to help skilled craft persons from Missouri make a better living.  Many of these highly talented persons were economically impoverished.  It is held each year during the first week of August at the United Church of Christ Shanendale Camp just south of Salem, Missouri.  It now draws craft persons from a four state area who donate their time to teach their crafts to campers who can pick from over 20 native Missouri crafts to learn.  Mark your calendar for the next festival which will be held August 3-8, 2008.  For more information call Office of Creative Ministries’ Board member Beverly Flowers (417-967-2431) or go to the Office of Creative Ministries website at http://www.umcom.com  The 2008 brochure will be available after the first of the year.
