At League City UMC, we reach out in Christ’s love because we understand that Christ calls us to put action to our words of concern for others. Through our Missions program we share with others our varied talents and gifts that God gave us, and by doing so we help share His love.
Every year we support an array of different outreaches that are designed to help the world beyond the walls of the church and as close as our neighborhood and as far as you can imagine. They span the spectrum of outreach, providing for the needs of many people in many ways both physical and spiritual. Our projects throughout the year touch hundreds of people in real, heartfelt ways in the name and spirit of Jesus Christ.
Participation in our Missions program allows you, in a very concrete way, to help and care for others. When you become active in the Missions program, you will have many opportunities to spread Jesus’ message of life changing love and provision in ways that will not only help others, but will transform you.
On the first and third Friday of each month, you will find our parking lot so full of people, there is hardly room to park.

At League City UMC, we strive to be the hands and feet of Christ by reaching out to others in their time of need. One of the ways we give comfort to others is through our Prayer Shawl Ministry. Volunteers crochet or knit prayer shawls to be given to others in their times of sorrow and moments when they need to know someone is there and cares. Being the hands that crochet the shawls and the feet that deliver them to those that are hurting seems to be a small act but it is that small act that makes a huge impact on someone's heart. In is six years over 250 shawls have been distributed. This group also makes scarves and hats for Operation Gratitude serving our military and Wounded Warriors. The group meets the second Monday of the month, except during the summer, from 10:30 am to noon. To be a part of this amazing ministry contact the missions team at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Teddy Bear ministry at LCUMC started in November of 2018. .The new or gently donated bears go through an inspection, are repaired if needed, and sanitized prior to coming to the church. After their sanitation is complete the bears are tagged with an uplifting prayer. They are present during our worship service while we sing our songs of praise, hear our heartfelt prayers and our weekly sermon. They are then ready to be picked up and taken to anyone who may need comfort and encouragement and serve as a reminder of God's love. You may have a neighbor, friend, or coworker going through a crisis or a rough time. They may be ill, experiencing grief or loss, or other life issues. You can be the hands and feet of Jesus as you minister to them with a Prayer Bear. The bears are of various sizes, sometimes similar looking, have no bells or whistles, but can be a loving witness to others. We pray these bears will touch the lives of others in a way that leads them closer to Jesus. Anyone in the congregation may pick up a bear to take to someone in need, at no charge. That person may be in the hospital, home bound, sick, or just in need of someone to show that someone cares and that the church is praying for them.
Words from our first Prayer Bear recipient who is battling cancer. "I feel the prayers every day. They lift my spirits up and give me strength. I just love holding my Prayer Bear. It is very comforting." She can look at the tag on the bear that 'bears' the LCUMC information and know that we are a loving and caring congregation.
How can you participate? Check your home, ask your family and friends, and bring your donations to the church gathering area. There is a collections box in the gathering area.

United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR), a non-profit charity organization, established the Sager Brown Depot, located in Baldwin, La., as the headquarters for relief supply operations of the United Methodist Church. During our one week mission trip, we will assist in assembling hygiene kits, cleaning buckets or sewing school bags to make School Kits. The cleaning kits help people affected by floods, hurricanes and tornadoes start the overwhelming job of cleaning up, and the hygiene kits are basic necessities for those who may have lost everything. In some areas, the children do not have access to educational materials, so the school kits fill that void.
Volunteers are offered additional opportunities to serve, including working in the community with the seniors, the local orphanage, and a resale shop. There are opportunities to help maintain the Depot's grounds.
We also offer a one day opportunity to serve at the Texas Annual Conference Mission facility in Conroe where we focus on cleaning buckets and hygiene kits only.
League City UMC typically goes to UMCOR Sager Brown during October. If you are interested in this mission trip, contact the mission team at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Each summer, youth and adults dedicate a week to helping others in need. In the Texas heat, our youth, young adults and adults work in clients yards and homes building wheel chair ramps, making necessary home repairs, painting, and sharing the love and compassion of Christ with those in need. As a team, they work hard, worship fervently and share love freely. This is a week that not only changes the clients' lives, but it changes the lives of the youth who serve them. Our youth learn how to be the hands and feet of Christ by serving others outside our walls, and they learn how to be strong leaders. Many of the youth that serve in U.M. ARMY on a team as a teen come back and lead a team as a young adult. It is a life affirming and life changing week. For more information on how you can be a part of this amazing week, reach out to Andrea Pritchard, Youth Director, at email@example.com OR sign up below for our email list to receive updates on church events, news and other opportunities to in our community.
