Serve
GLOBAL IMPACT CELEBRATION (GIC) WEEK 
February 23 - 26, 2017

We strive to provide ministries that will encourage us, as a church, to demonstrate the love of God to those who are our neighbors, our community, our nation and the world.

We base our outreach on Acts 1:8 which states:
"You will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea, and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." 

Check our Sunday bulletin and weekly announcements for ongoing opportunities to serve with a variety of non-profit organizations or you may contact Sherri Smith (sherrismith@helenaumc.org or 663-0111) for a list of current mission and service needs.
