Domestic Missions

    Local Missions

    Lakewood's global Mission program also offers help and support for local organizations. Examples are local ministries such as Mission Milby community Center in south Houston or at Neighbors in Action in east Houston at the Port. We support these ministries financially and sending teams for 1-2 days of repair and construction support. For more information on local missions, contact Betty Christian.

    UMCOR Sager Brown

    Sager Brown Mission

    A team from Lakewood UMC serves twice a year in the Sager Brown facility in Baldwin, LA. For more information contact Jack Aulick at

    A Lakewood UMC team will again be going on mission to the UMCOR Sager Brown Depot in Baldwin, LA, November 3-8, 2019. Based on Sager Brown needs and team skills, we will assemble various kits, work in the sewing room, help in a local women’s shelter, work in an elementary school, or do home repairs in the local community. Sager Brown is a living, working monument to over a century of United Methodist mission. UMCOR, United Methodist Committee on Relief, is a leader in service for the UMC to those who are hungry, displaced, sick or in poverty because of natural or human-made disasters. UMCOR serves in 81 countries of the world. Each year more than 3,000 volunteers come to Sager Brown to work in the UMCOR Depot or in service to the community of Baldwin, Louisiana, to help make a difference for people who are suffering.

    This is a great opportunity for people to go on a mission that have not tried one before, or that do not want to do heavy construction work.

    Please contact Carol Woronow for additional information. Future trips to Sager Brown are also planned for February 2020 and November 2020. For more information about our missions, see

    The United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) owns and operates the Sager Brown Depot facility in Baldwin, LA. This depot assembles, stages, and ships disaster recovery 'kits' wherever they are needed all over the world. Lakewood sends two teams a year that spend 5-6 days preparing and boxing kits, sorting supplies, etc. This is a great mission opportunity for missionaries that are not interested in construction.
