WEST DISTRICT MISSION FUNDS
The West District has created a new account specifically for missions. This account will be funded both by the West District budget and by generous donations by individuals and churches. Clusters and churches in the West District are welcome to apply for Mission Grants to help offset costs for ministry and mission in the district. Click the links below for the Grant Application and for the Guidelines for Grant Distribution. Questions about this fund can be directed to Bob Kumpf, West District Missions Coordinator.
If you or your church or your cluster wish to donate to this account, please mail your donations to:

Please make sure your donation is clearly marked for the West District Mission Fund.
Midwest Mission Distribution Center – Memorial UMC Mission Trip
The Midwest Mission Distribution Center in Chatham IL (near Springfield) is an upcoming mission trip, scheduled for Monday through Wednesday, March 14-16, 2016. The MMDC is a staging area for disaster supplies collection, preparation, packing, and storage. The missioner work varies from construction to flood bucket packing to health kit preparation to cutting and sewing of cloth book bags and more as the opportunity arises. Private rooms, restrooms & showers, a kitchen, etc are all contained in the missioners lodge. A fee of $100/missioner will be used to defray the cost of our housing at MMDC. Car-pooling will be arranged. Contact the MUMC Church office (234-0776) or Dave Voltmer (877-1626) to sign up or for more information. Don’t delay as time for planning is growing short.
The following West District churches serve as a collection points for items going to the Midwest Distribution Center:
West Terre Haute Emmanuel
Terre Haute Centenary
