Global & Local Missions!


Commission on Global Ministries


To be a church is to be a church in mission. We come together to worship, to be challenged and renewed to go out to be the church carrying out "missio dei", God's mission in ministries to relate to the poor, the oppressed and distressed as given by Jesus in Matthew 25: 31-41.  'Whenever you do this unto one of the least of my brothers and sisters, you do this unto me." 


The purpose of the Global Ministries of Harris United Methodist Church is worked out locally and globally and comes from the Discipline of the United Methodist Church which declares that "the Church in mission is a sign of God's presence in the world". Global Ministries is not about programs and projects   - whether those are in relief, community-health programs or covenant missionary support.   We are part of the holy community and a sign of God's presence as we pursue God's mission. Our goals are


• Make disciples of Jesus Christ

• Alleviate human suffering

• Seek justice, freedom and peace


• Asia Rural Institute, Japan - Jonathan McCurley

• JAPAN - Rev. Toshimasa & Rev. Claudia Genung Yamamoto
• Nicaragua/Interpretation Ministry in US - Miguel Mairena and Nan McCurdy

Local Missions


Canned Goods Donations:  We continue to collect canned goods to support the Susannah Wesley Community Center Food Pantry.  Please drop your donations in the basket at the back of the sanctuary on Sunday or at the church office during weekdays.


Serving the homeless has been a priority for Harris UMC for more than 25 years.


Harris Soup Ministry prepares a soup meal and stir fried vegetables every Monday for the homeless residents of the Institute Of Human Services.  Approximately 200 people are fed.  For more information, call Kimi Sugamura at 941.6502.


Harris Sandwich Ministry provides a packaged lunch to the homeless that sleep at Aala Park.  48 lunch packages are prepared which consists of two sandwiches, peanut butter/jelly sandwich and ham/cheese sandwich along with one home-made cupcake.  A bag of hotel-sized toiletries are also given. Twice a year regular-size toiletries are provided.  For information, call Lorraine Kadooka at 664-9869. 

Harris Mission Bazaar <2017 Bazaar report>

Thanks to everyone the Harris November 4, 2017 Bazaar was a huge success.  On November 15, I posted the last entries to our account, which included the last bags of recyclables and a check from Cerebral Palsy, which picked up our leftover goods on bazaar day.  The Harris 2017 Bazaar netted $16,500.76.


The 56th Harris Bazaar was dedicated to the memory of the late Marilyn Van Gieson, who with her husband Frank, were chairs of the Harris Bazaar for 17 years.  Their son Michael and his wife Elanor chaired the large White Elephant Booth.


All proceeds from the bazaar will be donated to mission projects for community groups in Hawaii and selected groups in Liberia, Congo, the Philippines, Nepal and Japan.
