Missions are a big part of Florence UMC. There are many small groups that actively provide support to several local missions. The mission team helps to coordinate and support the larger missions of Florence UMC by providing resources and support for the following, both locally and globally:
United Methodist Committee on Relief – UMCOR
UMCOR is the humanitarian relief and development arm of The United Methodist Church. UMCOR works around the globe to alleviate human suffering and advance hope and healing.
Ida Spence Mission
Ida Spence Mission is a local mission, located in City Heights, KY (near Covington). In partnership with local churches they serve children in the City Heights community by providing nutrition, education and mentoring in a Christian environment.
The Kentucky United Methodist Homes for Children & Youth
The Kentucky United Methodist Homes for Children & Youth have two locations – in Nicholasville and Owensboro, KY. Through the staff and services provided at these locations, children and families are provided with resources and support to meet their physical, emotional, educational and spiritual needs.
As a local church, we support three missionaries in service around the globe. In effort to protect them, we do not provide information about our missionaries on our website. Please call the church office if you need more information.
Sunday Night Live at Grace Mission in Covington
At least once a month, volunteers from Florence UMC provide the meal for this worship experience to over 150 people living near the church or on the streets in Covington.
