The 2012 Mission projects revolve around the theme "Our Church, Our Community, Our Neighborhood, and Our World." We are dedicating service to our local Hands to Help organization, the new Sunday Supper Series, UMCOR's Haiti missions, and our LGBT brothers and sisters through Reconciling Ministries.

Garden Group - Have a green thumb … or want one? Join this growing group! Contact Karyn Prather for more details.
Care Ministry - This is a small group formed to show love and care for someone who is ill, hurting, troubled, lonely or simply in need of affection. We make prayer shawls, blankets, cold weather scarves and hats for distribution to any in need, both inside and outside of our church. Those who know how to knit or crochet may jump right in to the work, but everyone, regardless of experience, is welcome. We pray over our work, filling the items we make with love, care and prayers for recovery and restoration. We also have a meal ministry for members who are in need of some extra help in the kitchen. This is a ministry for everyone in the church. Don't be shy or self-conscious. Please join us and help bring healing and hope to someone. The power of this ministry is real. If you have any questions, please reach out to David Foster or Vicci Rodgers.
Workniters Men's Group - The "any and every odd job at the church that you can possibly imagine" group (fun, fellowship and donuts included). Contact Mike Blaha if you're interested.
United Methodist Women - Our mission and ministry is to provide opportunities for spiritual, educational and family growth and sustenance for women and children of the church, community and beyond. We also are members of the Northern Illinois Conference of the United Methodist Women and thus may participate in their many programs, classes and conferences. We share resources which have regularly been entrusted to us, to enable us to carry out these goals each year. We are a small but dedicated group that meets for business and fellowship about four times a year. All women of the church are welcome and are invited to join us as we continue and hopefully expand this outreach. For more information, contact: Joyce Mylander.
Youth Group - Field trips, faith projects, and mission-based lock-ins with neighboring congregations. Growing up is the perfect opportunity to grow the faith. Contact Hope Reyes for details.
Bad Girls of the Bible Circle - Bad girls is small group of women that delves into snacks, drinks and good laughs while discussing the meaning of life. Each monthly meeting revolves around a loose theme of spirituality, God and the church, and covers topics ranging from unanswered prayers to random acts of kindness.
