Joseph Ministry

Joseph Ministry
The Joseph Ministry was created to help local people with small repair jobs. It consists of a small group of volunteers that assist our neighbors when skill level, age, illness, or misfortune prevents them from doing things around the house that need to be done.

More Than a Meal

More Than a Meal is a food ministry of MUMC that gives a sense of connection as well as a meal. Many of those who need food are also in need of seeing a smile and hearing a kind word. On the last Saturday of each month, we cook a meal, pack individual servings, and offer drive-thru pick-up for anyone who would like a meal. You can help cook, pack meals, clean up, or hand out meals while interacting with guests.

Often a group will get together to work the meal and enjoy fellowship while giving back to the community. The time commitment is four hours. The gift of your time and energy is much needed!

Please use this link to sign up online through SignUpGenius. The link can also be found on our website and app.
