Our Youth are Heading to the Midwest Mission Distribution Center in Chatham, Illinois this Week
The MMDC’s mission is to compassionately help God’s people in need locally, nationally, and around the world, and to offer a center to fulfill the call for service to our neighbors in Christ’s name.
The MMDC is a disaster relief facility that opened in the year 2000. MMDC is a caring ministry related to the Illinois Great Rivers Conference and the North Central Jurisdiction of the United Methodist Church. MMDC is also a cooperating depot in the UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief) Relief Supply Network.
MMDC’s campus provides opportunities for individuals and groups of all walks of life, denominational backgrounds, abilities, and ages to help provide disaster relief kits and resources as well as educational and medical supplies to those in need both locally and internationally. MMDC provides that “hands on” mission experience.
Since the MMDC is a non profit organization they depend on volunteers to help cover costs of running this mission. Each person that attends is asked to cover costs for use of the dorms ($20), registration fee ($20) and work supplies/materials ($50) per person. Your help is needed in covering costs for this trip. Besides the $90 per person (this year total is $2920) there is costs for gas, to travel there and back and for food. To designate your monetary gifts for this mission trip, please be sure to mark on your check or envelope MMDC. Thank you for supporting our youth, their work and the mission of the MMDC.
