Our Mission focus for JUNE & JULY Is the CAMBODIAN STREET CHILDREN’S MINISTRY that we learned about last summer when UMC Missionary CLARA M.BISWAS personally visited with our zum-zum pep club. The ministry reaches out to the children on the streets and in the garbage dumps of Phnom Penh City and provides educational, religious, & medical programs along with food, clothing and hope for a better life.

“Aren’t they all our children?”

All preaching is based on SCRIPTURE, TRADITION, REASON, and EXPERIENCE.

The purpose of the United Methodist Church
            is to make disciples of Jesus Christ
          for the transformation of the world.
