In Mission Together projects support those in need in Iowa and throughout the world

In Mission Together projects support those in need in Iowa and throughout the world

February 09, 2022

The In Mission Together team shares the following examples of how building relationships in shared ministries with people, programs, and projects continues throughout Iowa United Methodist Churches.

In 2021, St. Paul's United Methodist Church in Williamsburg, IA packaged over 16,000 servings for Take Away Hunger.

Being limited by the worldwide pandemic, St. Paul's continued to support a mission they are passionate about that feeds the hungry throughout the world.

Take Away Hunger is a food relief organization that unifies teams of people who package a specialized rice-based soy casserole mixture that is used locally and overseas. Its mission is based on a simple principle of people helping people. Take Away Hunger not only nourishes hungry children but the spirits of the volunteers who pack the meals.

Mount Vernon United Methodist Church's confirmation class recently prepared and sold soup for a Souper Bowl Sunday mission project with proceeds going to local families in need.


We want to hear your In Mission Together stories about what you do and how you do it! Learning about groups/churches “doing” mission may give ideas to implement in other local churches and communities.

Submit written stories along with a photo(s) that you may have or video clips with the purpose of the articles to be published by Conference Communications and shared with Iowa United Methodists.
