Serving

The Groton United Methodist Church provides many opportunities to serve in the name of Christ.  There are many groups working towards enriching the lives of our community.  Please feel free to discuss ways you can live out your faith in Christ and serve with the pastor. 

Missions

The Missions Committee is dedicated to supporting community projects.  We host an Angel Tree so that local children may have a joyous love filled Christmas.  The Missions Committee also supports the Global United Methodist Church with the Sunday Special Offerings that happen 6 times per year. Solar Oven Partners are looking for volunteer sewers to help make potholders.  Please Click Here to read more and print out the pattern.

Funerals/Memorials

A meal or lunch may be served at the request of the family.  The funeral menu choices are:  A)  scalloped potatoes and ham, vegetable (green beans or corn), buns, pickles (optional), bars or cake, coffee, and one other drink.  B)  sandwiches, chips, pickles, bars or cake, coffee, and one other drink. Memorial gifts are traditionally given at the time of a person’s death.  But, memorial gifts do not always have to come at a person’s death.  One may make a memorial gift on the anniversary of someone’s death or on another date significant in the life of the individual.  Honor Gifts are gifts given in honor of someone who is still alive.  It is a celebration of one’s life, an anniversary, birthday, or just to say “thanks”.

Foundation

Recognizing that the Permanent Endowment Fund is vital to the continued growth and security of the Groton UMC, it was created to receive permanent gifts to ensure the future of the Groton UMC and its ministry.  Its basic purpose is to provide members and friends opportunities to make charitable gifts to the Groton UMC that will become a permanent endowment of financial support and a living memorial.  The Endowment Program is intended for purposes that are not a part of the church’s established programs, which are funded through the annual operating budget of the church and the regular giving of its members.  The principal of the gift is invested and the interest from that principal may accumulate or be used to provide funds for ministries beyond the annual budget of the church. You can become an integral part of Groton’s continuing church history and ministry of this congregation by helping us establish a living endowment.  This starts with your gift of any size; you can make additional contributions throughout your life as the Lord blesses you and in death through your estate.
