Monthly Mission Focus

Midwest Mission Distribution Center, a ministry of the United Methodist Church, provides basic resources around the world and around the corner to create hope and empowerment for those in need.

MMDC focuses on four main areas: health, education, microbusiness, and disaster relief.

Since opening for ministry in 2000, they have been showing God’s Love in practical ways. Midwest Mission transforms the resources of God’s people into humanitarian relief, powered by your prayers and contributions, and connecting with local aid organizations. They are one of eight cooperating depots with UMCOR, distributing UMCOR supplies to US disasters.

Shipments over the past year have sent urgently needed relief supplies such as Rice meals, birthing and student kits, personal hygiene essentials, furniture, water tanks and more.

St. Mark’s will partner again with Midwest Mission Distribution Center for a Rice Meal Food Pack. All meals go to non-profits internationally. In connecting with “Food for the Poor”, response is given where the need is greatest. Last year St. Mark’s provided and packed 14,400 meals!
