UCM Ghana Mission Fellow

Hallie Jones serving in ministry in Africa
This fall, the UCM is supporting Texas State sophomore Hallie Jones as she spends three months doing ministry in Medie, Ghana. An agriculture major, Hallie will help plan agriculture and sustainability-related projects (for Texas State credit) while also assisting the local school's art ministries with whom Hallie's home United Methodist Church has an established relationship. We at the UCM are prayerfully excited to support her mission work this semester in funding part of her $3,000 mission expense. 

Hallie is seeking donations of specific art supplies that will travel well to Africa and pass through customs. In particular she could use:

Used or new wooden-handle paintbrushes (please no plastic brushes), 
trays of dry watercolor paints (please no tubes of liquid watercolors),
new crayons,
and new colored pencils. These donations can be dropped off at the UCM by Wednesday August 22nd.

Hallie is an active member of the UCM helping lead worship, serving at UMARMY, participating in our weekly Bible studies, and more. She will return to Texas State to continue her studies and involvement in our ministry in Spring 2019! 

Will you help us grow a special United Campus Ministry mission fund to support this type of mission work? Give online to the UCM mission fund or mail at check to "United Campus Ministry | UCM Mission Fund 510 North Guadalupe St, San Marcos, Texas 78666"

Serve San Marcos

Local volunteering made interesting and easy!

Vounteering should be easy, interesting and make a difference! But too often it can be difficult to find volunteering opportunties, it can be almost impossible to coordinate schedules, and it becomes a hassle to track service hours.

ServeSanMarcos.org is a community project that brings volunteers and nonprofits together in San Marcos. With a simple search, volunteers can explore the wide variety of ways to help their local community. You can help with education, food, nature, animals, housing, health, and many other ways. Connect with a project you are passionate about and explore new ways to serve! 

We are here to connect peoples passions with the community needs.  In under 5 minutes, volunteers can review and signup for help on projects. Gone are the days of phone tag and hours of long emails.  And once the project is complete - its as simple as entering hours served to automatically create a civic transcript that records service details with  hours.
