Reaching beyond ourselves
Serving others and spreading the good news of Jesus Christ to those who are far from God is one of the core values of Tipp City UMC. Following the example Jesus set for us, we seek to bring hope to the poor, disadvantaged, and disenfranchised.
We offer a variety of mission opportunities. Some are within the U.S. while others take us to other countries. Some involve construction while others serve children with life-threatening illnesses. On any given mission trip, people from all walks of life come together to serve others.
Join us for one of our upcoming mission trips and give hope to the hopeless, grow in relationship with God, and develop life-long friendships with others on a mission to transform the world. Find descriptions of our missions below. For more information, email any of the contacts below.
