Friendship is active in Missions in the community, across the country and around the world. Whether it is contributing to local organizations, or disaster relief, Friendship UMC generously shares what God has given us with others in need.
Part of Friendship’s Missions outreach is the HOME Team. This group of volunteers has been active for many years serving by helping to repair home, replace roofs and build wheel chair ramps for families in need.
Recently several members of the Friendship’s H.O.M.E Team, working with the local Community Alliance of South County, built a wheel chair ramp for a family in Lothian. The team worked all day Saturday and at the end of the day the homeowner had a beautiful new ramp. The homeowner had always had to rely on his family members to push him up and down the old ramp he had and could not do it himself. As soon as the new ramp was declared finished, he took off down the ramp, slowly but in control. He turned himself around at the bottom and started back up again on his own. He made it! It was a hart warming experience to see how a committee can come together to help out someone in need.
Later this fall the team will be heading to central Appalachia to help work on homes to make them warmer safer and dryer.
Friendship’s UMC Missions continues to look for ways to help out others in the community, across the county and around the world.
