LOCAL MISSION PARTNERS
Coming soon to Seymour Lake UMC, Samaritan Counseling Center of Southeastern Michigan is making plans to open a new office on our property, to serve the mental health needs in our community. More information will be released as soon as it becomes available. In the meantime, you can learn more about the type of counseling services they offer here: Samaritan Counseling.
LOVE INC (In The Name of Christ)
We partner with Love INC of North Oakland County to help our neighbors in need by collecting donations of clothing, household goods, and personal care items throughout the year. We also provide financial support for Love INC clients who are facing financial hardships.
OCEF (Ortonville Community Emergency Fund)
To help fight hunger in our area, we collect non-perishable food items throughout the year for OCEF and take up special collections during the holidays as well.
CROP HUNGER WALK
Each fall, a team from Seymour Lake participates in the Church World Service CROP Walk to help raise funds to fight hunger both globally, as well as locally.
Saving our pocket change during Lent to donate to Heifer International is an annual tradition at Seymour Lake, Families around the world are given a gift of an animal that provides both food and continuing income.
OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD
Each November, the members of Seymour Lake also fill shoe boxes with small gifts, which are then distributed to children in need across the globe by Samaritan’s Purse at Christmas time.
HANDS-ON MISSION TRIPS
Last June, a Seymour Lake team went to Guatemala to help install floors and stoves into homes, through the organization Now Is The Time For Missions.
In October, a team from Seymour Lake will depart for the Dominican Republic to serve women and children at a Score International Lily House.
MISSIONARY FINANCIAL SUPPORT
A portion of our weekly offerings help to support two Missionaries who both work globally to empower women:
Princess Jusu serves in Monrovia, Liberia through the United Methodist General Board of Global Ministries.
Karleigh Jenko serves in the Dominican Republic with Score International.
