Opportunities Mission Support and Serve
The Missions Committee's purpose is to encourage the people of Aledo United Methodist Church (AUMC) to contribute to the church mission with their gifts, talents, and services, as God moves them to participate.
The Missions Committee is a group of volunteers from our congregation who assist with planning and financing our mission and outreach work. They provide direction toward new mission opportunities, monitor active mission activities, and manage the funding budget.
The Missions Committee is responsible and accountable for the Missions and Outreach fund; they make decisions on how funds are dispersed and encourage participation subject to these procedures.
