Thalia is adopting Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVC) as our church’s primary missional focus. This means that we are stepping up our commitment to serve children at home and abroad. Check out our Missions page to learn how you can help.
Thalia UMC’s Ministry Council has adopted work with Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVC) as the church’s primary missional focus. This means that we will be working towards aligning our future initiatives around helping children locally and around the world with organizations like United Methodist Family Services and the Foundation for Orphans.

This does not mean we will stop important services like the Food Pantry. It only means we will bring greater intentionality to the work we do to help children in need, like building homes for children in places like Africa.

Our statue of Jesus welcoming children has become a recognizable sign in our community. Our hope is to make this statue a tangible reminder of our commitment to make all of God’s children feel loved.

We need you. Our goal is to build a home for fifty children in Africa through the Foundation 4 Orphans (F4O). With your help, we are going to raise $125,000 in three years. You can build a new normal for homeless children by giving through our donations tab and writing “F4O” in the designated line. To learn more about F4O, click the link below to head to their website.
