Missions at Oregon Community

NATIVE AMERICAN MINISTRY: We are excited to explore more ministry opportunities with Pastor Hill and the people of the Blackfoot United Methodist Parish (BUMP) in Montana. Mike & Paula Shifflet, Pastor Jason and others are interested in pursuing new opportunities. Mike led a Bible Study regarding native american history and its connection to the church (the good, the bad, and the ugly aspects). We are also hoping to support the mission of BUMP by raising funds for a pickup truck that they need for their ministry of teaching people to train horses and to possibly take a mission trip to the reservation.
