Missions

We believe that glorifying God through worship, service and Christian fellowship are the essential elements of a Christian life. Huffman offers a variety of ways to help you best give glory to God’s presence in your life. Check out our other missions pages to see all of the ways that we are not only making a difference hands-on in our community and beyond, but helping support others in their missions.

Huffman UMC also serves as a gathering place in the community for events such as our Halloween Carnival, Easter Egg Hunt and Yard Sale/BBQ/Car Wash!

Our Community Schools - Back to School Mission Project


 

Yes it is that time, time for our ‘Back to School Mission Project’!  As we all know our community schools are in need.  There are attendance issues, many children are behind in reading, lack of community support, low teacher pay, HUNGRY CHILDREN, CHILDREN IN NEED and the list goes on and on.  So many times our first question is “How did this happen?”

BUT perhaps our first question should be “HOW CAN I HELP?”

 

There are MANY ways you can HELP our community schools. 

o   Be in prayer for ALL our community schools - your mission team is working on distributing NEW APPLES to help remind us to pray for our schools and also give us direction on specific prayers needed

o   Be a volunteer - in the classroom, in the library, in the office, on the first day of school…

o   Support our Weekend Backpack Ministry- The cost per weekend food bag is $4.12 per weekend that means you can support a child for a year for $148.50. 

o   Support our Back to School mission project monetarily or donate school supplies

 

This year’s mission budget is very slim so we desperately need your supply donations and/or monetary donations.  We hope to have enough monetary donations to divide them between the school supplies needed in our 3 community schools, Huffman Academy, Martha Gaskins Elementary and Huffman Middle School AND our weekend backpack ministry that supports hungry students at Martha Gaskins Elementary. 

 

YOUR DONATIONS ARE NEEDED AND NEEDED NOW.  SO SORRY FOR THE SHORT NOTICE BUT TIME HAS SLIPPED UP AND THE ALABAMA TAX FREE WEEKEND IS July 19th - 21st (please forgive the short notice..so sorry).   

 

Supplies Needed include:  Baby Wipes, Clear/Mesh Backpacks, Composition Notebooks (not spiral), Crayola Crayons, Disinfectant Spray, Expo Dry Markers, Glue/Glue Sticks, Hand Sanitizer, Lysol/Clorox Wipes, Copier Paper (White and Colored), Notebook Paper, Paper Towels, Pencils, Post-it Notes, Mechanical Pencils, Black Pens, Kleenex, Gallon Zip Lock Bags

 

Thank you for supporting our community schools and being God’s disciples.
