Central UMC supports almost 20 local missions and nonprofit organizations with our missions budget, but how can we, as individual church members, make a difference? To help, each month we will spotlight a ministry that we support and give you ways that you can get involved.

Thank you to all who participated in the 40 Days/40 Items Project! If you are able to take your bag yourself to the Salvation Amy Thrift Store on 14th Street that would be super helpful! Several people have asked if they need to tell the Salvation Army their bags are from Central United Methodist Church, the answer is no. In fact, if you would rather donate your items somewhere else that is perfectly fine!! The goal was to give up something each day of Lent to remind us of what Jesus gave up for us…His life!! The mission team chose The Salvation Army as the recipient of all bags brought to the church and we will be taking bags there. It’s a win/win for everyone!
The newspaper collection was taken to the American Thrift Stores to help wrap breakable items when purchased by customers. Thank you to all who contributed.
This month we will be collecting items needed for the Neighborhood Christian Center. Please note the items are to be individually wrapped. Place all donations in the bins located in the fountain area. Below is the list that the NCC would like to have. Please remember the next time you are shopping/ordering groceries to pick up an item or two for the NCC!!!
Individually Wrapped Snack Items such as Snack crackers, Goldfish, Mini Jif Peanut Butter, Chips, Instant Oatmeal, Pudding Cups, Fruit Cups, Snack Cakes/Little Debbie Cakes, Fruit Snacks, Pop Tarts, Capri Suns, Mini Sunny D.
