FAITH IN ACTION allows us to see the results of our hard work immediately – and it makes us more aware of how important and fulfilling it is to serve our neighbors. It makes us more appreciative when we share Christ’s love. JOIN US for a weekend of hard work, service, prayer, and community! Remember, the more hands we have, the more people we can serve. If you have any additional questions, you can also contact Vicki Gallagher, Ministry Lead for FIA, at email@example.com.

Faith in Action, April 2016: The Rose Hill UMC Mission Team in partnership with Tomball UMC performed construction work and repairs to many homes for a local families in need. Our assignment was to repair floors, build a closet, put in a back door with steps, hang three doors, lay vinyl plank flooring and build a cover for the front porch. The family was awesome and on the second day working on their home, we learned that the husband was veteran of two tours in Iraq with the 2nd Marine Division and is a Purple Heart recipient. We were all so blessed and honored to do the work we did for such a wonderful hard working family and then to learn it was for a veteran also, we were all so humbled.
Pastor Webb lead another team of 30 individuals (10 from RHUMC & 20 from Montgomery UMC) back out to 4-Corners to work with the Navajos in Window Rock, AZ. The team stayed at the Window Rock UMC. Construction work and repairs were performed on a couple of the church facilities while a separate group built a wheel chair ramp. All the cost for construction was paid for through church member donations and a grant from the Texas Annual Conference. Several members of the team also conducted a Bible School for children from the church and surrounding neighborhoods.
Our team of 8 led by Pastor Bob left early on Fathers Day headed to Miami, OK to assist in the refurbishing of an old church in the Cherokee Indian nation that will serve a new congregation of believers after years of setting idle awaiting a on the Holy Spirit to give it life once more and all to the glory of the Father! Keep our mission team in your thoughts and prayers as they share in fellowship and witness to our Native American Brothers and Sisters in Christ
