Every 60 seconds, malaria claims a life in Africa. Millions of lives, needlessly lost each year. A continent. Entire nations…slipping away. Slipping through life’s precious net. Unless you hear the buzzing inside you.

Imagine No Malaria is an extraordinary effort of the people of The United Methodist Church, putting our faith into action to end preventable deaths by malaria in Africa, especially the death of a child or a mother.

Achieving this goal requires an integrated strategy against the disease. As a life-saving ministry, Imagine No Malaria aims to empower the people of Africa to overcome malaria’s burden. We fight malaria with a comprehensive model. 

Working together, The United Methodist Church can cover the entire vulnerable population of

Sierra Leone.  The follow is how you can donate to this initiative to help Imagine No Malaria.

First United Methodist Church of Wyandotte is committed to group and individual involvement in missions and ministry within our local community and throughout the world. Our efforts fall into two categories: global and local.

Globally, Wyandotte First has ongoing mission ministries in a number of countries, including Liberia, Congo of Africa and Haiti.  We also provide direct support to missionaries, including Dr. Chris Henna in Liberia and Daniel & Rachel Gabler in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Africa.

Locally, we both support and participate in a number of ministries that reach out to individuals and families in a variety of ways.

  • Waynewright Soup Kitchen
  • Crop Walk
  • Blessing in a Back Pack
  • N.O.A.H. Project Detroit
  • Hands 4 Detroit
  • Outdoor and Retreat Ministries

There is much more happening with Wyandotte First missions in addition to what we’ve listed here. Want to know more? Like to get involved? Contact Lois McIntye—she’d love to talk with you!


The following is a list of some upcoming mission events:

  • Sandwich Project:  We feed homeless & hungry folks in Detroit as part of the Noah project three times a year.  Over 1000 sandwiches are provided.  We will be making lunches on February 16 & June 8th at 9:00 AM in our Fellowship Hall.
  • Waynewright Community Meals:  We serve hot meals and a bag lunch to the hungry in Wyandotte, five times a year.  Our next dates are January 29 and April 30, 2014.

  • Crop Walk:  Join the Downriver Crop walk and have fun raising funds to alleviate hunger at home and around the world.  If you can't manage the walk consider sponsoring one of our walkers.

  • ChristNet:  On April 27, 2014 we will be providing a meal for the guests of ChristNet at Glenwood UMC.  We also provide overnight care of the guests.  If you're looking for a mission to help out with this is an easy way to do something meaningful for our local area.

  • Downriver Community Food Pantry:  Non perishable food is needed for distribution twice a week all year long.  We accept donations anytime.

  • Think Haiti:  Our church is planning a 4th Volunteer in Mission trip to Haiti in early 2015.  If  you would like to join us you may contact the church for more information about how to be VIM (Volunteer in Mission).  Our work has been in the Jeremie area, 150 miles west of Port Au Prince.  We have worked with theGommier School and with Samaritan House - a residence for seniors.  Our work with the Gommier School is ongoing.
