Before Jesus left the earth, he had an important message for his followers–for those people who watched him live, serve, die, and rise again. It was also message for those followers who would come after–those today who would hear, read, understand, and believe. That message was simple:  spread the good news. At Eldridge United Methodist Church we do this through a heart for missionary work, both in our local community and afar. 

Missions, Local

The Missions committee provides opportunities and ways for the congregation to share their lives, their time, and their resources for others in need in our community and world.  They uncover community, state, national, and world concerns and encourage the congregation to become involved in missions and service projects.
