We have just completed our 5-year
mission partnership with the
Methodist Church in Belize!!!
Over the past 5 years, we have built a Methodist High School in Belmopan. It has been a lot of hard, hot work!!! BUT we (and many other volunteers) did it!! We are so excited that the first class of Senior students is now studying!! Thanks be to God!
We also worked with St. Jude's Elementary School to teach the children

This month we are featuring our feeding ministries:
- SHIP. Each second Friday of the month, we serve lunch at the facility in Somerville
- COVENANT FREE MEALS. Each Monday in July, plus an addition 4-5 Mondays throughout the year, we serve dinner to those who gather weekly at Covenant UMC in Plainfield.
- SOMERSET COUNTY FOOD BANK. Each week we collect food that is delivered to the Food Bank to help feed those in our communities who are in need.
- WEEKEND MEALS. We help provide weekend packs to children in our community who receive food at school during the week, but who would be hungry on the weekends.
Feed the Hungry!
There is a special appeal out due to the depletion of the shelves
at Somerset County Food Bank. Please bring your
canned goods to the church so we can help meet
this need! Thanks!
