The goal of the joint Missions Team of Mt. Carmel, New Market, and Fairview Chapel United Methodist churches is to maximize our time, talents, and resources to serve and impact lives with Christ-like compassion in our local, national, and global communities.
The parish churches – Mt. Carmel, New Market, and Fairview Chapel – have a joint Missions Team. The team schedules, coordinates, evaluates and communicates missions within the churches to ensure that we are maximizing our time, talents, and resources as we serve our communities.
In the United Methodist Church, a mission is sending or taking resources, aid, or services to people in the community – local to global.
The team’s goal is to have opportunities to support missions locally, nationally, and internationally as needed, physically and financially, by providing resources, through acts of service, or by sponsoring individuals to minister.
