"Go Therefore and Make Disciples of All Nations"
September Missions of the Month
Alzheimer’s disease is a degenerative brain disease and the most common form of dementia. Dementia is not a specific disease. Our annual report reveals the burden of Alzheimer’s and dementia on individuals, caregivers, government and the nation’s health care system. It's an overall term that describes a group of symptoms. Researchers believe there is not a single cause of Alzheimer's disease. It likely develops from multiple factors such as genetics, lifestyle and environment. The Alzheimer's Association leads the way to end Alzheimer's and all other dementia by accelerating global research, driving risk reduction and early detection, and maximizing quality care and support. We work on a national and local level to provide care and support for all those affected by Alzheimer's and other dementias. As the largest nonprofit funder of Alzheimer's research, the Association is committed to advancing vital research toward methods of treatment, prevention and ultimately, a cure. The Association is the leading voice for Alzheimer's disease advocacy, fighting for critical Alzheimer’s research and care initiatives at the state and federal level.
We will host the 17th annual Walk to End Alzheimer’s here on Saturday, October 14th at 9:00am. It began right here at our church, and we continue to be the anchor for this event. We provide the venue, volunteers, sound system, and the financial support to ensure its success. This is proof of our commitment to this important cause! The Walk is held in over 600 communities, and is the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research. If you would like to participate, you can join the Methodists on the Move team at https://act.alz.org/southshorefl. Donate to the September Mission of the Month, attend, or simply pray for a successful day. If you have any questions about the Walk, you can contact Victoria Sorensen at church or Connie Lesko at (813) 927-1147.
We are a passionate congregation about reaching out in our local community as well as across the world with the love of Jesus Christ. We try to include an element of Missions in almost everything we do. We love traveling to places such as Africa, Peru, Cuba and many more as well as helping local missions such as the Fight Against Human Trafficking, Good Samaritan Mission, our UMC Children's Home and many more. Please consider getting involved in making a difference.

Thank you for your interest in becoming a Mission of the Month at the United Methodist Church of Sun City Center. As the Mission team, we are excited to learn more about your mission.
We receive many requests to become part of this program. We prayerfully read all applications with special consideration given to missions whose program is dedicated to making disciples of Jesus Christ and show a proven history of successful ministry. All missions accepted as Mission of the Month must support the mission and vision of the United Methodist Church of Sun City Center. Because we currently have many applications, not every mission that applies will be accepted this year.
We will closely study the goals of your mission, the actual percentage of your proposed budget that directly supports the slated mission, and your plans for documentation and ongoing evaluation and accountability. Should we support your mission, we will ask for a follow up at the end of the year, stating how the funds that you received were used.
Please complete the enclosed application and return it to:
