Serving God's People through Missions and Outreach

Serving God by serving others


    • WUMC’s Helping Hands Service Corp helps local people with critical, short-term needs and limited resources. The WUMC Helping Hands Service Corps (a.k.a. Helping Hands) has a small team of volunteers that have fielded the requests and met the needs of a number of ‘clients,’ including both members of our congregation and members of our extended community. Learn more about this important program here.


    • Community Services Council of Woodbury

      Over the past three decades since its founding by the faith communities of Woodbury, the Community Services Council has become the catalyst and tangible expression of our community’s financial generosity and personal compassion for its most vulnerable members. CSCW provides the necessary bridge that enables our clients to preserve the well-being of their families and restore their financial security through access to food, fuel and crisis assistance.

      WUMC offers regular support to CSCW, including ongoing food pantry donations, regular volunteering, and donating proceeds of events to support their food programs and energy assistance.

    • UMCOR — The United Methodist Committee on Relief

Growing faith through serving others

The true strength of the community of Woodbury takes many forms—from the vibrancy of our local businesses, to the commitment of our civic and faith organizations and the dedication of citizen volunteers in local government. The purest reflection of our community’s vitality can be found in the simple act of extending a helping hand and open heart to a neighbor in need.
