Even small congregations can make a difference through their individual efforts, or jointly by supporting the larger United Methodist Church through apportionments. Below are a few calls for action, as well as links to UM missions worldwide.
Who benefits? That's up to each of us... but congregations like Ravenna UMC help define those needs and give us ways to make a difference.

Providing Job Training, Education, and Facilities for Community Action
Providing a temporary home for women and their children in need of more permanent housing.
In support of the invaluable efforts at Mary's Place Day Center in Seattle, Ravenna UMC, St. Ignatius ECC, Dignity/Seattle, along with other faith communities and individual volunteers, are helping to meet the growing needs of Washington State's homeless women and their children in finding safe, temporary "overnight" shelter as they try to get back on their feet.
Each church, mosque, or temple is being asked to provide shelter
one week at a time per quarter of the year.
Together, we are making a concerted effort to end homelessness in our communities.
THANKS TO ALL who helped and volunteered recently and in the past.
We couldn't continue to do this without you !
RUMC is scheduled to host families again in December.
Would you like to volunteer and/or support our efforts? More info here.
