Community Kitchen & Closet

Community Kitchen Every Wednesday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Community Closet Every Wednesday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. (closed 1st Wednesday)

First United Methodist Church has a long history of serving a soup kitchen out of the Fellowship Hall at our downtown campus.  For many years, that meal was served on the last two business days of each month.  In early 2009, we discerned a change in the needs of the community and began serving every Wednesday.  We have a number of other churches and community groups who partner with us to make these meals possible.

The Community Closet was opened in the fall of 2009.  Items that are not covered by food stamps (toiletries and cleaning products) are offered as they are available. Contact the Church Office if you are interested in supporting this ministry with your time or donations. Cash donations may be made at the Church office.
