Reaching Out

Risk-Taking MISSION Opportunities
 
Back to School BASH
We help organize and supply over 500 children with their needed school supplies and health checks in August each year.

School supplies, health check, hair cuts and more were provided for kids getting ready to begin school.
Children were registered through OACAC before the event.  There were bounce houses, face painting, and magic show to enjoy while in line for supply distribution.
 

Food for Families @ Robinson Elementary

AUMC assists the Food for Families Program each month in supplying and handing out food to families in need.
 



SERVE


Serve is an annual state-wide service event hosted by the United Methodist Churches of Missouri.  Each church is challenged to find a need they can address in their own community during this event, and perhaps beyond.  Anyone and everyone is welcome to join in as we work hand in hand to make our communities better through hands on service!
 
Mission work AUMC did this year for SERVE includes community service clean-up projects, soul man shoe collection, nursing home visits, collection of underwear for the Foster Care Program, volunteering at the Christian Service Center, building Personal Energy Transportation vehicles, making JOY boxes for those in the hospital and continuing to make lunches for the Feed My Sheep sack lunch program.

The following video shows Missouri UM Churches participating in SERVE:

Helping Families at CHRISTMAS "Hope for the Holidays"
 
At Christmas, we make up Christmas boxes which include gifts for the children, clothing, and sometimes food to give away to area families.
Each box will be filled with donations by generous givers.
If you would like to adopt a family and fill their box, please contact the church office 678-3359 or auroraumc@centurytel.net.
 


Thanksgiving Meal Provided to the Community

AUMC provides a traditional Thanksgiving Meal in the dining area of our church each Thanksgiving.  Meals are also delivered to the home-bound.  Over 250 meals were served last year.  
This tradition for AUMC has been happening for over 20 years.  We feel fortunate to be able to provide the meal for those who would like to join together in thanksgiving and share a meal.
Thank you to the members of our church who so graciously donate the food and volunteer to prepare and serve.
