Our church provides mission trip opportunities for all ages, including adults! In 2013, our adults have served with Heifer Project in Arkansas, Saratov UMC in Russia, the Organization for the Development of the Indigenous Maya (ODIM) in Guatemala. If you are interested in serving with or leading a mission trip, please contact Rev. Jessica Wright.
The first mission trip by members of First UMC-Denton to Saratov, Russia was in the summer of 2011. In 2012, our church made the decision to enter into a covenant partnership with Saratov United Methodist Church as it works to complete its church building. We will continue to send teams to serve with the church is Russia, not only to complete the physical campus, but also to grow in faithful relationship.
For more information about our work in Guatemala, contact Dennis or Janet Fisher.
The work our church has done with the Organization for the Development of the Indigenous Maya (ODIM) has been to support the medical clinic in San Juan la Laguna and further construction of a new clinic in San Pablo la Laguna. ODIM serves the Maya people living in the Lake Atitlan region of the country.
For more information about our work in Guatemala, contact Dale or Molly Tampke.
Our church has been supportive of Heifer Project’s work for many years, typically donating one or two Arks of animals each year. On this mission trip, participants visited Heifer Ranch in Arkansas to gain a deeper understanding of the positive impact of animals given to families.
