Mission of the Month
Whether around the corner, or around the world, Armstrong is committed to engaging in life-changing missions. Each month, we support various mission organizations with our money, our materials, or our time. Below are just a few of the mission organizations we partner with:
Marshall food and clothing bank
Located at 810 N 2nd Street in Marshall, the Marshall Food and Clothing Bank provides emergency food assistance to around 200 families per month on average. They also offer gently-used clothing (and other household goods) at 25 cents per article. In addition to supporting this mission financially, Armstrong volunteers at the clothing bank on the 3rd Monday of each month, and at the main food distribution on the 4th Tuesday of each month.
Marshall Area Youth Network
The Marshall Area Youth Network is a community collaboration where educators and other community youth organizations can talk about issues concerning youth and famililes, implement programs to address the needs, and share resources. In addition to offering youth mentoring programs, MAYN also offers substance/violence prevention education. Armstrong encourages its members to become mentors, and supports this local organization financially.
Marshall Ministerial Alliance BACKPACK and summer lunch program
Armstrong UMC is one in a network of churches in the Marshall area that supports the Backpack and Summer Lunch Programs, which work to ensure that no child in our community goes hungry on the weekends or throughout the summer.
