Local Outreach

Go therefore and make disciples

Matthew 28:19

Local Outreach is an opportunity to love our neighbors as ourselves within our own community.
 Through fellowship and giving, we share our blessings with others .  United Methodists believe that every Christian is called to
reach out to our neighbors in love and service.  Jesus taught that we are to love our neighbors as ourselves.  John Wesley encouraged the early Methodists to live into that teaching by "doing good of every possible sort, and, as far as possible, to all [people]"
(The General Rules of the Methodist Church). In many ways and in many places, United Methodists share our
love of God as we serve our neighbors all around the world.

Located in the parking lot on Pleasant St.

"Take what you need.  Leave what you can."

Proverbs 19:17

"Whoever is generous to the poor, lends to the Lord, 
and he will repay him for his deed."
