Covenant Relationships

Mentor United Methodist Church has formed a covenant relationship with missionary Janice Lee. Our annual commitment to Janice Lee is $2500 through the Board of Global Ministries but anyone can give personally to her mission by making checks out to Mentor UMC and designation to Missionary Janice Lee. Here is a Youtube video link of a short clip of Janice Lee in Cambodia:

Fellowship Hall Renovations



If you haven’t had a chance to visit the display in the Gallery, we encourage you to do so. There you will find a board and flyers showing a proposed redesign for certain aspects of Fellowship Hall and have an opportunity to voice your thoughts. The renovations are focused on lighting, a new media booth, floors, paint, and chairs and would be done in PHASES. The main flow and purpose of the room will not change. You can also view the plans below and fill out a Google Form to share your thoughts. Reminder that these are just ideas, nothing final. There is no definitive timeline or cost as of now.
