CHRISTMAS & DISASTER GIVING OPPORTUNITY
There are many nondenominational organizations that vie for our attention during this time of year. While their
intentions may be good, East Ohio Missions seeks to develop relationships and partnerships that are healthy
and seek justice for the recipients. Giving through the Midwest Mission Distribution Center (MMDC) is an opportunity within our UMC connection to give in healthy and appropriate
ways. We are encouraging all East Ohio congregations to collect items for MMDC, then bring to the drop-off
site closest to you the week of Nov. 29-Dec. 5. MMDC will be driving through the conference later that week
to pick up the items collected at each site. All items have been requested by the receiving mission sites.
MMDC seeks to advocate and empower their mission partners.
MMDC is also one of our Conference Advances. If you would like to send a financial donation, you can give
online and choose Fund 9944 or send a check with “9944 MMDC Christmas” in the memo. The sites will NOT be
taking monetary donations. More details on https://www.eocumc.com/donate/index.html
Together, let’s reconsider what God’s generosity can look like during
this Thanksgiving, Advent and Christmas season!
