LOCAL MISSION PARTNERS
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 and take up special collections for OCEF during the holidays.
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.
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 September, a team from Seymour Lake departed for the Dominican Republic to serve women and children at a Score International Lily House.
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.
