Mission Initiatives & Events
We continue to be very active in mission projects

2021 Mission Projects
Christmas in July
We will celebrate Christmas in July on the 25th!
You are invited to bring gifts to our Worship Service which will be donated to the
St. Louis Crisis Nursery in St. Louis (Gravois location).
This has been an extraordinarily difficult year for parents of young children, and the supplies at the Crisis Center are significantly depleted.
Follow this link for their Wish List. https://www.
Either send your gifts directly to the Crisis Center through the Amazon link,
or bring them to church at 10:30 am on Sunday, July 25th and place them under the Christmas Tree!

2020 Mission Projects
Our church will again be sharing our Christmas offering with others.
This year, we will be splitting the shared portion with two ministries, Room at the Inn, and InExcelsis.
Our relationship with Room at the Inn (RATI) goes back a long time.
Room at the Inn provides immediate, temporary shelter to homeless women and families in the St. Louis region.
In addition, they work with them to create an individualized plan back to self-sufficiency, including counseling services
and referrals to other human service agencies. Then they mentor them to improve their chances for success.
Our relationship with InExcelsis is brand new.
Founded by Severin Pelekara, a member of our church family,
InExcelsis reaches out to the homeless, providing support in the way of meals, clothing, bedding, mentoring, and job skill training.
The ministry also provides spiritual support through Shared Streets, a weekly worship experience that goes to the people.
2020 has been difficult for everyone, but none more so than those living on the streets,
sleeping in cardboard boxes over grates, abandoned buildings, or safe harbors.
When you think about your Christmas offering, please imagine their struggles to keep their children warm,
fed, and safe during a pandemic. It is the kind of stuff of nightmares. Please give generously.
Make your check out Webster United Methodist, and mark Christmas”
in the memo section, or go to the GIVE link in our website to make your gift.
