Jesus said, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon
me, because he has anointed me to bring
good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim release to the
captives and recovery of sight to the blind,
to let the oppressed go free,
to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”
Luke 4:18-19

“Go Out in
Severna Park United Methodist Church
731 Benfield Rd. Severna Park, MD 21146
We believe that everyone is called and
capable of serving others in Christ’s name!
Our mission is “go out in faith” as we follow Christ’s call to be in ministry alongside the least of these amongst us.
How can you get involved in missions
Learn – Read more about Jesus’ call for all
Disciples to serve and love one another. Talk to
members of our missions team about the needs of
those we are serving. Research the issues we are
working to address.
Pray- Pray for our congregation, leaders, and
volunteers as we listen for where God is calling us
to serve. Pray for all of the participants on mission trips and projects. Pray for those we are
building relationships with through service.
Give – Give tangible items or financial gifts to
the many mission projects at SPUMC. Without
these gifts it would not be possible to serve others
in Christ’s name.
Step out in faith, and possibly out of your
comfort zone, and participate in an SPUMC mission project or trip! When you serve others you
not only help those in need, but you will also be
transformed by Christ’s presence!
Lead- Pray about volunteering to be a leader.
Remember that leadership comes in many forms:
serving on committees, organizing trips and projects, witnessing to the congregation, researching
new mission opportunities, and overseeing administrative tasks.
If you would like to get more involved or learn
more contact Jennifer Ford at:
[email protected] She will help connect
you to a mission at SPUMC. If you know
which mission you are interested in contact the
leader directly (see next page for contacts).
