Outreach & Mission
Thank you for your support to Tanzania Moto in 2019. Our church was able to make a significant donation to this Mission Project because of your generosity . We plan to continue our support in 2020. Here is an update of the mission:
In the initial trip Rev. Mike Mayhugh and Rev. Cropper (Quitman) assisted with start-up costs for goat and chicken farms, and they seeded a small business loan program for promising enterprises in several financially impoverished areas. While doing so, Christianity and the Methodist faith were encouraged. Their mission helped construct one church and provided other progressive actions to help introduce Tanzanians to Methodism.
The goal of the January 2020 mission trip to Tanzania is to train, support, equip, and assist Tanzanian Methodist Pastors and Lay Leaders in understanding the fullness of the gospel of the Kingdom. They will be teaching Servants' Feast Christian Ministry's “From Called to Sent” curriculum modified to fit the Tanzanian context.
10 United Methodist Pastors and Lay Leaders from the Texas Annual Conference will be partnering with Pastors and District Superintendents from the Tanzanian Annual Conference, traveling first to Dar es Salaam and then out to some of the more remote western Villages in the Kibondo District to provide the much needed training and support. Our focus is on the struggling Methodist Churches and helping them become vibrant, growing and strong outposts of the gospel of Jesus Christ. We are trying to strategically supply whatever is needed in those churches to help them fulfill their mission.
Emory Methodist Women
Our January meeting was opened with a prayer, devotion and purpose. Our annual Christmas Party was a huge success with plenty of food and fun activities. In the coming year we are planning for several events, such as garage/bake sale, Ice Cream Social, Festival/Bazaar. We will be working with other church committees to plan some activities.
It was decided that the Good Samaritans would be our main service project for the year - February 8th 8:3012:00, 13th 12:45-4:15, March 12th 8:30-12:00, 14th 12:45-4:15. The 4th Saturday of every month is the Thrift Store. Please help on one of these days.
The meeting was closed with a prayer circle - we sang Happy Birthday and said the Lord's Prayer.
