Go therefore and make disciples of all nations
Community UMC has a strong history of reaching out to others locally and throughout the world. Opportunities frequently arise to provide assistance and spread the Word of God outside our walls. Whether we individually participate in blood drives on a Sunday morning, partner with local ministries serving our local community or travel as a group to areas outside our community for disaster relief and mission trips, we are always seeking ways to serve God’s people.
Missionaries We Support
Pat and Melenda Edmiston
Wycliffe Bible Translators
The Edmiston’s are from Casselberry and grew up in our church. Pat and Melenda traveled in early February to Papua New Guinea, where they served for 23 years, returning for the first time since completing and dedicating the Alamblak New Testament. Pat is currently in Nigeria working with different language groups to translate the New Testament. Melenda is working in Florida with new Wycliffe members.
Johnny and Rachel Bruder
Bruders in Berlin
Johnny and Rachel Bruder are currently stationed in Berlin, Germany, with a passion to bring the freedom of Jesus Christ to women who are currently involved in sex trafficking and prostitution. They also teach Bibles studies and distribute needed supplies to those they minister to in Berlin.
Youth With a Mission
Lily grew up here at Community UMC, and she is currently serving with Youth with a Mission. She serves in YWAM's Orlando’s Student Communication Department, and also with youth ministry to 9th grade girls. She is currently getting Certified to Teach English as a Second Language, completing “Word By Heart” (a bible school at ywam orlando), and plans on attending the upcoming “School of Cross Cultural Missions” in January.
