"Go Therefore and Make Disciples of All Nations"
Haven of Hope
The Haven of Hope is a non-profit, volunteer-driven, faith-based support program for female inmates released from prison. Our new mission is to offer financial assistance and faith-based guidance to ladies who have been released from prison and participated in a transition program. They have proven they are making good decisions, have a job, and are on the way to becoming productive citizens. Through our assistance, we hope to help them accomplish their goals and objectives. This assistance will be based upon proven needs and will be centered on Faith Based Principles. Many women released from prison find it difficult to find a good paying job and affordable housing. They may have a need for assistance with medical expenses, living expenses, job training, etc. We have helped several ladies with these types of expenses and will be helping many more. We have also provided assistance to another transition home with a special need.
Kiwanis Club Dress 4 Success
The Kiwanis Club of SouthShore's focus is helping community children and families. One of their annual programs is providing two new uniforms, socks, and a pair of sneakers for needy elementary students in public schools. A social worker identifies students and contacts the families to obtain the students' sizes. Then the Kiwanians go shopping! Other groups such as Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, and the Rotary Club of Sun City Center assist in the process. It takes many hands to prepare the bags of clothing for almost 100 students in several schools. Young students and their families are so grateful for new clothes, and the students feel better about themselves and school. The funds are obtained from grants, fundraisers, and donations. Thank you for your generosity to this worthy cause.
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.
