Mexico Children's Ministry
Mexico Candy Roll Mission

This year's Candy Roll Party will be November 16, 2014

Each year our church participates in ministry which provides Christmas gifts for children in Mexico.  We gather for lunch in the Sanctuary and then stuff toilet tissue cores with individually wrapped hard candies and wrap each in Christmas paper.  This is a fun project that everyone can participate in.  The empty toilet tissue cores are collected throughout the year for this project.  Last year MUMC filled and wrapped nearly 5,000 gifts ... just from our church!  There are other churches in our area that participate in this ministry and thousands of Christmas Candy Gifts are delivered to the Mexican border in time for Pastors of various churches in Mexico to distribute them to children.  For many, this small token of love will be the only Christmas "gift" they receive.  This ministry has been a long time project of MUMC.

For more information about this ministry or how you may become involved, please contact Mike Landes at 936-448-4560.

There are other ways to help with this ministry such as candy donations and, of course, money to help purchase candy and paper.  Give Mike Landes a call today!!
