Welcome

Welcome to the First United Methodist Church, Wichita, Kansas, Missions blog. I ask your patience as this is my first blog .

I am Annette Schmidt and the Director of Missions for First United Methodist Church (FUMC) in Wichita.   I have been in this position since January 2017.  Previously our Director was Bonnie Laycock who retired last year after more than 20 years of service to our Missions program.

I am very excited to be here in this position.  My main focus is work teams going out of the church and being the hands and feet of Christ, helping those in need.  This could be a local, national or international team. We have had teams serving here in the Wichita area after tornadoes, we have teams that have gone to help after Hurricane Katrina, and we have also had teams that have built stoves in Guatemala.  These are just a few examples.  We help feed the homeless and help various community organizations.

I have been on work teams to North Carolina, Virginia, Nome, Mississippi, New Orleans, Baton Rouge, Colorado, and Michigan.  They varied in the types of projects on which we worked.

What is your passion in helping others?  Let’s talk!
