Church-wide Missions

Monthly Missions - June 2022

Parfreyville UMC

We serve the Bread Basket meal twice a year. The meal consists of a hot dog, beans, pickle, carrots and bars for desert. Unless otherwise designated, funds for June will go toward purchasing food for the meals.

The meals are served every Tuesday at First United Methodist Church. “Bread Basket is an ecumenical meal program dedicated to serving the bodies and souls of all who enter with food, fellowship and friendship.” Ever since the onset of COVID, the Bread Basket meals are being provided as carry-outs only.

Bread Basket is staffed entirely by volunteers, and funds come from grants and donations from individuals, churches, organizations and businesses.

Thanks for your generosity. In April, we collected $370 for Missionary Trobby, $455 for the Agape fund, 15 pounds of food for the food pantry and $1,350 for UMCOR Ukraine.

We also had another Zoom meeting with Missionary Trobby. You may see his updated blog at

Monetary donations for the Food Bank can be placed in the labeled glass jar.

Also we are collecting for Heifer International.


The Waupaca School District is in need of the following items for summer school 1) Boy's backpacks 2) Markers and Paint sets 3) Snacks.

They are requesting that regular sized boxes of snacks be provided instead of individually packaged items as it creates less waste. No liquids or juices. Acceptable snacks would be graham crackers in different flavors; animal crackers and Goldfish. Donated items can be placed in the receptacle in the back of the Sanctuary.
