The Mission Commission acts from both a local and a global perspective, being sensitive to community, ecumenical and United Methodist concerns as well as world events. We sponsor a “Mission Moment” during worship each month. Our outreach programs encompass the Albany United Methodist Society (AUMS), Troy Area United Ministries (TAUM), the General Board of Global Ministries, the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR), Doors of Hope, Joseph’s House, the FUNHO Project in the Dominican Republic, the Global AIDS Fund and others. We also support Jeremias Franca, a person in mission in Mozambique, and Mariana Rodriquez, a person in mission in Albany.
Each year during the month of March we host “March Madness for Mission” where, on each Sunday, we lift up one of three local missions and Jeremias Franca. We hold an annual Empty Bowls soup luncheon to benefit Doors of Hope and The Heifer Project. We also sponsor a Souper Bowl Sunday (in conjunction with the other Super Bowl) where we collect cans of soup for local food pantries.
We meet following 10:30 am worship on the second Sunday of each month. For more information, please Contact Us.
