Local & Global.

Local and Global Ministry works to achieve four goals of mission:


1. Make Disciples of Christ – We will witness by word, deed, and a caring presence.


2. Strengthen, Develop & Renew Christian Congregations and Communities – We will work with Mission partners toward growth and development of spiritual life, worship, witness, and service.


3. Alleviate Human Suffering – We will initiate and support ministries that address the needs of our neighbors, locally, nationally and globally.


4. Seek Justice, Freedom, and Peace – We will participate in programs that seek to build just, free and peaceful societies.


We work to express our love for God and our Neighbors with a commitment to action in pursuit of justice for all.



The Advance for Christ and His Church is the United Methodist program for designated mission giving.  The Advance represents “2nd mile giving” – 100% of every Rainbow offering goes to the designated Advance ministry.


(Apportionments represent our 1st mile giving and support administrative costs.)
