Selvin UMC congregation supports several local, national and foreign missions. UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief) is one of the first organizations to respond here in our country and countries all over the world in times of disaster or need. Besides our support of UMCOR and tithe payments to SW District and Indiana Conference, we have also supported these local organizations:
Bread of Life
Santa Claus Campground
Families in our communities as needs are made known
Every experience God gives us, every person He puts in our lives is the perfect opportunity for a future that only He can see.
Corrie ten Boom
and Jane Schneidewind are Selvin UMC’s Snowbirds. Art
and Jane hail from Nashotah,Wisconsin (north of Milwaukee).
Several years ago they bought a cabin on Yellowbanks Lake. To them the winters of Southern Indiana seem pretty mild compared to weather up north. Art and Jane travel back and forth between their two homes according to their schedule and the weather. We really enjoy having them as a part of our congregation. They participate in the choir and recently joined our Wednesday evening Bible Study.
Art has set up and maintains our church web-site and has also published a church directory. We very much appreciate Art and Jane’s ministry in our church.
Heilman G.B. Food Pantry
We are supporting the food pantry with special offerings given on Communion Sundays. Donations will also be accepted at any time and envelopes are available for this purpose. Checks should be made out to Selvin United Methodist Church with a notation to be given to the Heilman food pantry. The donations and offerings will be kept separate from our regular Sunday offerings and tithes.
This will help the Heilman church in keeping their shelves stocked with the items they need at any particular time.
