Missions Gala helps build homes


GREENVILLE – Destination Known Missions Ministry of EUM Church in Greenville is in its 13th year partnering with the Potter’s House Association in Guatemala.

Over the years, teams from EUM Church have built 20 homes for families that live in the garbage dump shanty communities. They have visited numerous families in their homes to pray with them and to share Jesus with them in real and practical ways by installing wood burning cook stoves, providing much needed food to families and passing out Bibles.

Destination Known wants to continue building homes for families in the shanty communities; however, due to the increased cost of building supplies, funding these homes has become more difficult.

A Missions Gala will be hosted by Destination Known with 100 percent of the proceeds being used to build homes for families living in the Guatemala City dump communities. This will be a time to dress up and enjoy an evening of dinner and dancing. This is an alcohol-free event that will be held at Romer’s Catering in Greenville beginning at 7 p.m. Oct. 27.

There also will be live and silent auctions with items to bid on. Items include a five-night stay at Cumberland, a lawn glider, an Ohio State quilt and many more.

Tickets are on sale now. The cost is $35 per person. Tickets may be purchased at EUM Church, Romer’s Catering, the EUM Church app or online at www.eumchurch.org.

Those who are unable to attend but would like to make a donation should make the check payable to EUM Church and mail to EUM Church, 111 Devor St., Greenville, OH 45331, and put “Guatemala Missions” in the memo line.
