Mission Box
This week's mission box opportunity supports the Bishop's Offering for Annual Conference and will be divided evenly between a restart of the FAMU Wesley Foundation in Tallahassee and planting a new church in Lowell Women's Prison in Reddick.

Lowell Correctional Institution: A pastor will be assigned to serve at Lowell Correctional Institution for women in Reddick. Lowell houses the most women in a correctional institution in the US.  Currently there are 34 prison-based churches in the United States, including two UMC prison churches in Tennessee and Iowa.

Impact at Florida A&M University Wesley Foundation: Part of the vision for IMPACT@FAMU Wesley Foundation is to create a "home away from home" for their students, an office/pastoral care area for the Executive Director, and a place to worship, gather, learn, play, and pray for the FAMU campus at large.
