Opportunities to Serve

Support UMCOR's disaster response

As the humanitarian relief and development arm of the United Methodist Church, the United Methodist Committee on Relief assists churches to become involved globally in direct ministry to persons in need. We invite you to give to our special offering to support UMCOR.


Your gift will go where the help is most needed. Please make your check payable to Community UMC with UMCOR on the memo line, or text the amount and acronym (e.g. 25.00 UMCOR) to 573-238-8586. If you would like to give to a specific crisis -- U.S. Disaster Relief and Recovery, International Disaster Relief and Recovery, or Global Migration, please click here to go directly to UMCOR's website. You will see specific options for your donation. 


Volunteer opportunity with Loaves and Fishes

We're looking for more volunteers to serve meals to those in need through Loaves and Fishes.


Community helps serve food for homeless guests on the third Saturday of each month. On each fourth Sunday, we prepare and serve the meal, 4:30-6:45 p.m., at the Wilkes Boulevard United Methodist Church. At present, because of COVID-19, the food has been a bagged meal offered outdoors. Before this, meals had been offered from the kitchen and the guests have been seated in the dining room. 


For more information about volunteering for Loaves and Fishes, contact Linda Fillwock at 573-445-3991 or 505-301-8108, or click here to send her an email.
