We believe that every Christian is a minister who has been given gifts, talents, and resources to be discovered, developed and deployed for service in the Church and world.
Each of us is called to participate in the outreaching ministry of Jesus Christ. John Wesley described this quite simply: “Do all the good you can, in all the places you can, to all the people you can.”
Leland Community United Methodist Church is a very giving church, our mission work takes many forms.
The LCUMC Missions and Outreach Committee provide financial support to a number of organizations from the Committee budget and from funds raised on Special Giving Sundays.
“7 But to each one of us grace has been given as Christ apportioned it.
8 This is why it[a] says:
“When he ascended on high,
he took many captives
and gave gifts to his people.”
9 (What does “he ascended” mean except that he also descended to the lower, earthly regions[c]? 10 He who descended is the very one who ascended higher than all the heavens, in order to fill the whole universe.) 11 So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, 12 to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up 13 until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.” – Ephesians 4:7-13
