South Walpole UMC has a strong tradition of involvement in missions. From our annual Thanksgiving Meals on Wheels, to collections of needed items for people in the area prisons, to helping our neighboring school with its annual fall fundraiser, to setting aside time to pick up trash along the side of the road. Last month members of the Union Congregational Church in East Walpole joined some of our members on a joint mission trip to rural Maine. Just a few days ago one young high school grad gave up some of her hair to Locks for Love. One boy from our congregation asked the guests at his birthday party to bring the toys for someone who was really in need. Last December as news of the Tsunami reached us, another young couple organized for our church to be a drop off location for emergency supplies. And when our congregation emphasized Imagine No Malaria with our float in the Walpole Day Parade we both raised awareness of this exciting and attainable mission of ridding Africa of this terrible disease (just $10 can save a life) and won third prize - saving 10 more lives.
