There are ways to reach beyond our community to serve even if we cannot physically go there.  Here are some opportunities to serve:
Costa Rica Mission Trip:  At this time, this opportunity is on hold indefinitely.  You may click this link for more details about it  Costa Rica Mission Trip but if you are interested in participating on a mission trip, UMVIM (United Methodist Volunteers in Mission) offers ways to serve in that way.
Kairos Prison Ministry:  The Kairos Prison Ministry is threefold.  It seeks to change hearts, transform lives, and impact the world.  Our members make cards, placemats, cookies, etc., for the weekend retreats.  Financial help is also need to make these retreats possible.
Pumpkin Patch: While we offer a pumpkin patch on our church grounds, it reaches far beyond our church and community.  Click on this link for more info.  Pumpkin Patch
