Groce United Methodist Church
Sending forth in service!
All About Us!
In an effort to reach as many lives as we can, the Outreach Committee carries out projects that help feed the hungry, provide shelter to the homeless, and other services for those in need in the community. We help fulfill Groce UMC’s mission of building the family of God through praising God, bringing others to Christ, teaching the faith, strengthening the fellowship, and sending forth in service. Within this ministry, there are two influential subgroups:
United Methodist Women
The Methodist Women represent the heart and soul of Groce United Methodist Church. They work tirelessly to raise money for a variety of mission and outreach programs. Currently, there are two active Circles – Miriam and Sarah. Some of their fundraisers include bake sales on Palm Sunday and at the Fall Festival.
United Methodist Men
The United Methodist Men are involved in a number of activities, such as serving meals at the Veteran’s Restoration Quarters, blood drives, Habitat for Humanity, ABCCM, and mission trips.
Through organizations such as ABCCM, Habitat for Humanity, and the Vet's Quarters, we help build our community from the ground up. Whether its making home repairs or providing lunch to those in need, we are here to help!
Manna Food Bank
Reaching out to local organizations and offering aid is not something we take lightly. Volunteering at Manna Food Bank is a way for us to give back to the community through time, service, and love. Having the Youth involved in projects such as the Potato Drop brings extra energy and joy to what we do!
Our seasonal pumpkin patch is one for the books! Stocked with not only pumpkins for carving, we have novelty gourds and mini pumpkins for families of all ages and sizes. Come support our local missions and our supplier: the Navajo Indians!
Hosted by the United Methodist Men, the Italian Dinner welcomes people of all ages and families of all sizes. When combined with the annual talent showcase, you get dinner and a show! Sporting a variety of talent from right here in the church, this night of music, laughter, and good food will warm your heart for sure!
