Blackfeet Mission
Each summer our church sends a team to work for two weeks with the Blackfeet United Methodist Parish on the Blackfeet Indian Reservation in northwestern Montana. Native Americans on reservations are somewhat of a forgotten population in the US. Many live in extreme poverty in government housing that has not been adequately maintained for years. Alcoholism, drug abuse, teen pregnancy, and high school drop-out rates are prevalent at rates much higher than the national average in other ethnic groups. Our team travels to Browning, Montana, each summer.   If you are led to be a part of this mission, please consider joining us next year!
 The trail ride in support of the mission is April 9th, 2022.  Check out the Facebook Page for up to date information.

Woodland’s Youth participate is several mission projects throughout the year. While most of their projects are local, they are no strangers to traveling to help others.
 
School Support
WUMC prayerfully supports the Pike Road School system and Macon East Academy throughout the school year.  We host the blessing of the teachers in August and provide treats for teachers, too!
