For the Community

“For who is greater, he who sits at the table or he who serves?

Is it not he who sits at the table?

Yet I am among you as the One who serves.”

Luke 22:27 (NKJV)

Communal Ministry members serve in a way that reaches out to the community so that others might connect to God through Jesus Christ. These service areas reach into places where people may never attend a church, but may just need a caring presence and a Christian example.

Food Drive


SUMC members and friends provide food for local pantries, such as Hunger, Inc., to serve the hungry and those in need. There are opportunities to assist with monthly food collection, to share of the bounty of your garden, and to deliver donations to the pantries.
