Missions

In the spring of 2014, several members of our Church and Missions Team were called to help with Hurricane Sandy clean-up.  One team went to Staten Island, New York in partnership with reachglobal.  Click here to see pictures from this trip.

Another team visited Crisfield, Maryland.  Below is a video montage highlighting the trip.

“It’s hard to believe that it has almost been two years since Super Storm Sandy made landfall and yet its effects can still be felt in Crisfield Maryland. Crisfield is the poorest community in Maryland and was one of the hardest hit by the storm.  This spring 15 member of Gravel Hill went to Crisfield to help in the ongoing effort to make Crisfield whole again. please share their experience below”


Various groups throughout Gravel Hill are also actively involved in local missions with fund raising and providing services and goods and through companionship activities.  Several groups include The Koininia Sunday School Class, Ken Staver Sunday School Class, Faith in Action Sunday School Class, the Missions Team, and Isaiah 6:8.  Please contact Tony or Shauna if you are interested in learning more about the classes, groups, or opportunities.  Examples of several ministries we support include Love in a BoxCaitlin’s SmilesThe American HouseGAINusa.orgHope LodgeCompassion InternationalJoy El MinistriesThe Ronald McDonald HouseNothing But NetsThe Caring CupboardOperation Christmas Tree, and Lebanon County Christian Ministries. This ministry is also collecting items to donate to a growing number of homeless congregated under the South Bridge in Harrisburg.  Check out the Bulletin for updated lists of needed donations.

Volunteers in Missions visited Puerto Rico on a Missions Trip.  Several members of Gravel Hill UMC joined VIM.  Below is a short video high-lighting the trip.

Gravel Hill’s Partners in Missions/Missions started in September of 2004. The original goal for the group was to help local individuals and families in need. Over the years, M/PIM has helped numerous people, families, and organizations.  Whether it be food, clothing, or medical supply donations, monetary donations for gift cards, help with rent & utilities, or gas card, or providing meals during Thanksgiving, our team works to better the lives of the people living in and around the Palmyra community. In addition to these, M/PIM also volunteers at two local food banks. Without volunteers from Gravel Hill to support this team with their time and generosity, we could never impact our community in such a powerful and positive way.

Here are some figures to think about. In an average year:

  • our “Save the Tape” Redners Program raises over $1200.00
  • our Aluminum Can collection raises nearly $50
  • general congregation collections raise approximately $3000

All these monies go right into our Missions Fund which then is used to help support the numerous causes listed above. Thank you from everyone on the Missions/Volunteers in Missions Team.
