UMCOR Sager Brown Mission


DEC. 6 @ Noon E118

Lakewood will send a volunteer mission team back to UMCOR Sager Brown in Baldwin La. over the dates of February 21-26, 2021. This is a great opportunity for anyone to go on a Lakewood mission that does not involve construction work or require extensive travel. The team will support UMCOR by working in the large warehouse sorting supplies, assembling various kits, etc. There will be an informational meeting regarding this mission on Sunday, December 6 at Noon in room E118. If you have questions or want to signup, contact Jack Aulick.

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.

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.
