Mayodan UMC sponsors a Cub Scout Pack that meets every Monday at 6:30 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall. Cub Scouts are open to every child (boys an girls) in Kindergarten through 5th grade.
Guardian Angels is a group consisting of the MUMC church family providing family care for our shut ins. Shut ins are people who are either in their own homes or a nursing home. The purpose of the Angels is to show these MUMC members that they have not been forgotten. Every member of our church family is important, even if they are unable to attend regularly due to illness or physical limitations. This group provides support for the entire family through:
- Listening: Sometimes isolated member have no one to talk to. A good listener can make a world of difference in their daily lives.
- Gifts: Some of our isolated members have no family members in the area outside of their church family. A small gift on birthdays, Valentines Day, Easter, and/or Christmas may mean a lot. Small gifts like a book, card, Dollar Tree items, food, etc. are always appreciated.
- Prayer: Anyone can pray. If you do not feel comfortable praying for someone, ask them if they would be willing to share a prayer with you. Just let them know that they are in the prayers of the entire church family. You may also use the prayer room on Sundays or any time the church is open.
The entire church is providing support for our Guardian Angels by providing gifts before holidays for our shut ins. These gifts will be available in a designated area in the church narthex. The Angels will meet once per month to organize visits and assign Angels to shut ins. The assignments change every month. Angels are expected to visit once per month, although more visits are encouraged if they would provide additional support for the shut in.
Weary Warriors – Tired but still fighting!
Weary Warriors are a support group for any member of the community with a family member or a friend of anyone fighting addiction. Meetings are held on the 3rd Thursday of every month at 7:00 p.m. in the MUMC Fellowship Hall.
Mayodan United Methodist Church is partnering with the following local ministries to help meet the needs of individuals and families in our community.
The purpose of this ministry is to share God’s love by establishing cooperative response to the emergency needs of persons in the Madison, Mayodan, Stoneville and surrounding area (the Western Rockingham County School District). The principle goal is to provide emergency assistance to individuals or families in situations where other local agencies or groups may be unable to provide the services needed.
The mission of Lot 2540 is to: Promote spiritual, emotional and physical restoration for families and individuals of our community.
We are a living, thriving community that helps others move from crisis to stability. Our helping hand is not a hand-out but a help-up. The Chinese Proverb is true – If you give a man a fish, you feed him for a day. If you teach a man to fish, he can feed himself for a lifetime. Our goal is to form relationships with our clients and through those connections to see our clients achieve self-sufficiency.
Phases I, II & III
As LOT 2540 grows, these are the phases that we will use to move clients from crisis to self-reliance. Currently, Phase I is operational. Phase II is in the early stages. With God’s help, we will put Phase III in action soon.
Phase I – In Phase I, we offer crisis assistance. This assistance takes the form of food, clothing and resource referrals for access to services that we don’t currently provide. We focus on forming solid relationships with those who come to us for help.
Phase II – Once the immediate crisis has been addressed, we then focus on teaching, coaching and mentoring our clients. We want our clients to be spiritually, emotionally and physically healthy. Training and education in life skills is available.
Phase III – At this point, we want to help our clients achieve economic self-sufficiency. To this end, we hope to become a local 501C3 incubator for new non-profits that can be a source of employment for our clients. We also hope to develop a new campus where all services that help our clients continue to be self-reliant are housed under one roof.
