"Go Therefore and Make Disciples of All Nations"
Gabriel Rasmussen Trust Fund
As you may have heard, our fine organist, Keith Rasmussen, passed away suddenly in his sleep early on the morning of July 23rd. He is survived by two brothers, twin daughters (grown) and his 10-year-old son, Gabriel. Keith deeply loved and cared for his little boy, often saying to him "I love you big boy" in response to his son's "I love you daddy." And Gabriel spent much time with Keith at the Church while he was single-parenting the boy. At this point, we're not sure whom will be given custody of Gabriel, but we do know that it is a very contentious situation. In any case, the Mission Team has decided that a Trust Fund should be set up to help him, either in the immediate future or for his post-secondary education. Tom Emigh, our Director of Finance, has agreed to be Trustee, at least for the time being.
If you would like to donate to this Mission of the Month, please make checks payable to "UMCSCC" and not "MOM-Gabriel Trust" on the for/memo line. Or click the link below. Thank you for helping this exceptional boy!

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:
