From the Wisconsin United Methodist Foundation – Abundance: Security in God  - November 2018

And all ate and were filled; and they took up twelve baskets full of broken pieces and of the fish. Those who had eaten the loaves numbered five thousand men. (Mark 6:42-44 , NRSV)

The story of the loaves and the fishes illustrates God’s abundance. It also illustrates the often seen configuration of Stewardship attitudes in our churches.

A Message from the Missions Committee

For several years People’s Church has had the Rural School in Cuernavaca, Mexico as our main international mission ministry.  The main reason we have been successful with what our funds and presence have been able to do with and for the school is because of the oversight and guidance of Brienne Barrows Gallardo and Cesar Gallardo, the daughter and son-in-law of Oregon residents, Linda and Dick Barrows.
