The Blessing Box
Our Blessings Box at the back of the church provides a place where the community can give and receive non-perishable food. We hold regular food drives to keep the box fully stocked, and and we provide seasonal items like warm gloves from time to time. We offer a visiting table under the shade tree where people can rest a while, too.
Our list of seasonal missions is long. From blood drives to Christmas toy drives, to free garage sales, ramp builds, and disaster relief, we are usually up to something in the community. We share our space with Meals on Wheels, scouting groups, and other community organizations and support their missions when we can. Check the newsletter to see what is going on now.
Our founder, John Wesley said, “The world is my parish.” We seek to serve the world around us through our apportionments to the larger Methodist Church, and though support of organizations like Heifer International and True Vineyard Ministries.
The United Methodist Women are an active group at KUMC. They raise money for local and global missions, serve children and youth in our church and community, reach out to the needy with gifts and services, and provide education and resources for missions. Plus they provide spiritual growth and fun activities for the women of the church.
“Whatever you did for the least of these, that you did for me.“
