Missions

Our Community is Our Mission

As Methodists, our mission is to make disciples of all nations.  The Vision statement of our church reads:
“Rooted in Scripture; Growing in Faith; Sharing His Love; Strengthening our Community”
 
We feel lead as a church to strengthen our community as a mission outreach.  We feel especially lead to provide support to Rosehill Elementary School that is just down the street.  Through gathering supplies for kids and providing lunches for the teachers and administrators we lift them up with all  we do.

FAITH IN ACTION allows us to see the results of our hard work immediately – and it makes us more aware of how important and fulfilling it is to serve our neighbors. It makes us more appreciative when we share Christ’s love. JOIN US for a weekend of hard work, service, prayer, and community! Remember, the more hands we have, the more people we can serve. If you have any additional questions, you can also contact Vicki Gallagher, Ministry Lead for FIA, at vhgallagher@gmail.com.

In order to participate, the registration process must be completed and this form is step one. There is additional paperwork that must be completed by each participant and Elizabeth will contact you with that information soon.

Participants over the age of 18 will have to be certified through the Episcopal Diocese of Texas’ Safe Guarding God’s Children program or the Methodist Safe Sanctuary program. Elizabeth, Parish Administrator, will provide more information about satisfying this requirement. If you have questions about this please see Elizabeth for additional information.
 
Faith in Action, Feb 2017:
Rose Hill UMC had several members participating.  We joined Tomball UMC, Church of the Good Shepherd and some individuals in activities and projects aimed at helping the community.  There were 20 core projects spread between 14 teams with some stand-by projects should the core projects get completed early.
First, a big thank you
to all who could not participate in person, but contributed to our “Ladder Tree.”  We had a great response and all items went a long way in making the weekend a success.
Activities other than repair projects included
:
  Making prayer blankets
  Making Teddy Bears for the police (to comfort children)
  Sewing and packing hygiene pouches
  Delivering meals to homebound
  Delivering cookies and cards to 1st responders
  Working at T.E.A.M
  Working in the Tomball Community Garden
  Packing manna bags.
The majority of the Rose Hill project team was assigned a project involving:
  Removal & reinstallation of front door frame and damaged 2×4 studs next to door frame
  Repairing floor at entry
  Removal & reinstallation of storm door
  Installation of awning above entry door
  Replacing damaged 4” x 6’ pickets on back fence
  Repairing leaking fixtures in bathroom
  Several other small repair jobs.
 

Some members were assigned to other teams.  We had a wonderful time working with new friends.  One project involved painting the carport front porch; installing and painting railing next to the entry stairs; replacing the rotted flooring in the utility room; replacing the water heater; and other minor repairs.

It was a beautiful weekend and a lot was accomplished being God’s hands and feet in the world.

Faith in Action, April 2016:
The Rose Hill UMC Mission Team in partnership with Tomball UMC performed construction work and repairs to many homes for a local families in need.  Our assignment was to repair floors, build a closet, put in a back door with steps, hang three doors, lay vinyl plank flooring and build a cover for the front porch.  The family was awesome and on the second day working on their home, we learned that the husband was veteran of two tours in Iraq with the 2nd Marine Division and is a Purple Heart recipient.  We were all so blessed and honored to do the work we did for such a wonderful hard working family and then to learn it was for a veteran also, we were all so humble
 
 
 
 
Summer:
Pastor Webb lead another team of 30 individuals (10 from RHUMC & 20 from Montgomery UMC) back out to 4-Corners to work with the Navajos in Window Rock, AZ. The team stayed at the Window Rock UMC. Construction work and repairs were performed on a couple of the church facilities while a separate group built a wheel chair ramp. All the cost for construction was paid for through church member donations and a grant from the Texas Annual Conference. Several members of the team also conducted a Bible School for children from the church and surrounding neighborhoods
Summer 2014
Our team of 8 led by Pastor Bob left early on Fathers Day headed to Miami, OK to assist in the refurbishing of an old church in the Cherokee Indian nation that will serve a new congregation of believers after years of setting idle awaiting a on the Holy Spirit to give it life once more and all to the glory of the Father! Keep our mission team in your thoughts and prayers as they share in fellowship and witness to our Native American Brothers and Sisters in Christ
