   Deuteronomy 16:17
   Every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of the LORD


   your God which He has given you.





   Ongoing Mission Giving
     Non- perishable food donations are encouraged. Monthly it is given to the


        local food pantry in Greendale for distribution to those in need.  


      As United Methodists, we are called to live out John Wesley’s Three Simple Rules: 


Do good, do no harm, and stay in love with God.


      As we consider how we can live these out as a congregation called to be a center


         of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness,


         and self-control, we are reaching out to live the fruit of the spirit in our mission


         relationship.

   Our Missionaries Bill & Gwen Gibson in Senegal, Africa


    We have entered into a covenant relationship with United Methodist missionaries,


      Bill and Gwen Gibson. Members of Emmanuel UMC in Appleton,


      the Gibsons were newly commissioned during the 2012 General Conference.
   They are assigned to Senegal’s United Methodist Missionary Conference
     Bill, who holds a Ph.D. from the University of Illinois, works with local leaders


     to build the church in this predominantly Muslim West African nation.
   Gwen, who has a master’s in child development, started a daycare center


     teaching English to children.


   We will be in regular contact with the Gibsons.
   This relationship is a dynamic one; the church and missionaries pray for


     one another and communicate regularly.
  By deepening awareness of the struggles and triumphs of the missionaries,


     the congregation participates in a work that is truly connectional.
  The Gibson’s names will appear in our Sunday bulletins, as if they were


     staff persons, so that we will not forget that we are in relationship with them,


     and praying for them, and they are praying for us.
  When they itinerate back to the United States, we have the opportunity


     to meet them when they come and speak at our church.
