What is a mission area, you wonder?
A Mission Area is a geographic grouping of churches within each District. The Bishop and District Superintendent expect all clergy and churches to participate in this structure to:
1) develop cooperative support among clergy and lay persons in the churches,
2) identify the strengths and potential for ministry in the area, and
3) collaborate, cooperate, and partner in fruitful mission and ministry, being accountable to each other.
Bardsdale UMC is part of the Heritage Valley Mission Area with Piru UMC, Santa Paula First UMC, and El Buen Pastor UMC.
In 2015, we cooperated with Easter Week services, and hope to do likewise at Christmas. We will plan fellowship events and mission projects with all the churches in the HV Mission Area. We welcome ideas and assistance from laity.
