Mission is at the heart of Grace United Methodist Church. Mission trips take people to places outside their comfort zones and teach them that God is everywhere, especially in the midst of serving Him.

 

Ways to Give

First, your prayers for a safe and successful mission trip and year in assisting with medical needs are a great blessing!

Monetary donations large and small make a huge difference in the mission work we do. There are more details below on specific ways donations can make a difference.

You may make your check to GUMC and mark the memo as "TOCHI". 

You may attach a Tochi Buddies form with your check, and put it in the offering plate or take to the church office.

If you would like to make a donation by credit or debit card, go online at bit.do/graceonlinegiving.  Log in and enter the amount of your donation next to the “Tochi Buddies Donation” option, and your donation will benefit Tochi medical missions.

Have you ever wanted to go on a mission trip?  But…

The timing wasn’t right, or

The trip wasn’t one you had skills for,  or

Your health wasn’t good enough at that time, or

Something else you couldn’t control?

This is your opportunity to take part in God’s mission through Grace Church by being a Tochi Buddy with one of the Tochimizolco Medical Mission Team members.  This mission team is marking the 27th year of taking medical and dental care to poverty-stricken natives of central Mexico.  If you would like to be involved in support of the team with dollars and prayers, the team would love to connect with you.  When the team returns you will receive a photo and note from a team member giving you some information about his or her experience.

Grace Church is working hard to be God’s hands and feet in action in the world.  Participate with this team in bringing medical care to His people. Your gift will go to support team members and the trip expenses.

Team members: David Graham, Eric Dyck, Jim Wetzel, Frank Barden, Nevin and Lois Waters, Bill and Holly Chauvin, Julvia Castillo, Lisa Pope, Max Perez, Joca Neice, Mark Rohrbaugh, Cindy Hahn.

Tochi Opportunities

The Medical and Dental Team to Tochimizolco takes, and purchases in Mexico, a large quantity of medicine which will supply the Clinic there with medicine for most of the year.  If you would like to participate in providing the medicine and care for patients, please see below to realize how your gift could be used.

Below are examples of how your gift can make an impact.

Even the smallest gift can make a difference in the health and happiness of others.

Below are the estimated costs for each month or for a certain amount of crucial supplies. One way of determining your gift amount is by selecting the item you would like to cover and multiplying by the number of units such as months you would like to provide.

  • Our portion of Dr. salary for one month $150.00
  • Medicine stipend to clinic for one month $90.00
