2017 Missions Giving
In 2017, the UMW have given monies to over 25 different missions organizations totaling close to $38,000. This year we have added Kids Packages and Boys & Girls Clubs, North and South. We wish to thank the congregation for all of your support in which we earned monies for God’s Kingdom in Holland, USA, and around the World. With your help, prayer, and financial support, many felt Gods’ Love and Grace. We are truly blessed!

Pledge to the District
We are still collecting the aluminum can tabs for Grand Rapids Community House which is owned by UMW and serves a mission for people in their area. All of those little tabs add up to thousands of dollars for missions when all the churches in the West Michigan Conference collect and turn them into GRCH.
Collection boxes are now located in the East hall near the custodian room. That same corner also receives the Styrofoam, cell phones, and the bags for PET. Keep saving the tabs, Campbell coupons and recycling.
