Missions are deeply embedded in our DNA, here, at Collinsville First.  We regularly are in ministry with children at Webster Elementary and Lessie Bates Davis Neighborhood House.  We, especially, support UMCOR (the outreach agency of the United Methodist Church.  UMCOR is often the first into a disaster area…but, more importantly, some of the last people to leave a former disaster site.  Our weekly offering supports missions across the globe…and across the street.  We are also committee to fair trade goods and have fair trade coffee, hot cocoa and chocolate available for sale many Sunday mornings.

Below you will see stories and news that relate to Missions or Outreach.  You can switch to another ministry area or view All stories and news with the buttons to the right.
