MISSIONS at BIRMINGHAM UMC

ADVENT MISSION: CHRISTMAS IN SOSUA

Be sure to select Missions! 

For $7 you can feed a person at Christmas in Sosua. As we walk in the light of Christ this Advent, we invite you to give so others may see the light in the form of a nutritious, filling meal to show they are loved. 

Christmas in Sosua is a community Christmas dinner provided by the ACFI team in the Dominican Republic for the children and their families living in the poverty-stricken barrio (neighborhood) of Los Charamicos. 

The goal this year is to feed 700+ children and their families with what is the most fulfilling meal they may have all year. The meal also includes a Christmas program with music and entertainment. The event meets the need of those suffering from poverty while also presenting them with the hope of the Gospel. 

In addition to the meal, we also plan to purchase and deliver boxes containing a complete Christmas dinner to the teachers at the AFCI Christian schools along with their families. 

These acts of love open the door for the local church to encourage and minister to many of the families in this community. In years past, we have seen parents openly weep, astounded that someone would care enough to do this for them and their children. 

ABOUT AFCI

Ambassadors for Christ International (AFCI) was founded on the belief that Christian nationals living and working in their own countries provide the best foundation for the church to thrive and grow. Each national team has its own ministry focus, but all of us are committed to the vision of AFCI, which is “Teams of Nationals accelerating the spread of the Gospel through local churches worldwide.”

 

 

At Birmingham UMC, our congregation is active in both local and international missions. This is one way that we make a difference in the world by showing the love of God. For more information about how to get involved in any of the mission areas below, please contact Rev. Dr. Jennifer Wyant, Associate Pastor.
