 peru mission

The purpose of this mission is to support Sunday school classes and the building of a complete church in the village of Paccha, an indigenous community high in the Andes.
 
The mission started through KUMC, and the first Sunday school class in Paccha was held on September 23, 2007.  We are supporting a class of about 90 children by sending money for supplies and teachers.  We have held many activities over the years to raise the money to build the Sunday school, now finished and to construct a sanctuary, currently underway.  Other churches in the U.S. and Peru have helped by raising money and providing labor.  The church is named Roca Fuerte (Keystone). A mission team went to Paccha in 2010 and another trip in 2014.  For more information, please contact Marleni Chiappini.

 prayer garden

The Memorial Prayer Garden was established in 1990 to provide a special place for meditation and prayer. The garden also serves to honor loved ones. In 2009 we updated and rededicated the Memorial Prayer Garden to provide the interment of ash remains as well as memorials for persons interred elsewhere. Any KUMC member, or their immediate family member is eligible to participate in the features of the Garden. For more information please contact Juanita Hall.

kairos prison ministry

Kairos volunteers serve as God’s instrument through which His love, grace and mercy are expressed to inmate participants in a real and profound way. Participants are encouraged to take responsibility for their life choices and their relations with God and are invited to engage in small accountability groups. Kairos volunteers meet with participants monthly to provide mentoring and guidance through these accountability groups. It is here that Kairos participants begin to replace old ways of thinking with new and learn they are not alone on this journey. If you are interested in helpng with the Kairos Ministry, please contact Ed Starke, or Dale Freeman.
