PWUMC has traditionally set aside the first Saturday of each month as a day to serve together. Serving together as a church is an amazing opportunity to bless others and be blessed by going out into our community to show the love of Christ in real and tangible ways. Covid-19 has changed the way we are able to serve but, that doesn’t mean we can’t continue to be the hands and feet of Christ in our community. This information page will be updated monthly with a list of our Saturday Go Serve projects as well as serve opportunities that take place at other times throughout the month.
Many of the organizations we partner with have changed their volunteer guidelines to include social distancing, wearing masks, limiting the number of volunteers, working outdoor when possible, etc. Your safety while you serve is the highest priority. If you have questions or concerns about specific volunteer locations, please contact Brandi Molina, director of Missions.
Monthly Do Good Challenge
Each month families are given a “Do Good Challenge” as part of our Family Subscription Box. The subscription box is designed to help you and your family grow in faith and strengthen your community through acts of service!
Our March Do Good Challenge is collecting donations of dry and wet cat and dog food to support Friends of Parkville Animal Shelter and Angel Hearts Rescue. Donations can be dropped off at the church on April 17 between 4-5pm.
Previous “Do Good” challenges have included making Happy Kits for Children’s Mercy Hospital, donating books for a Free Little Library project, and collecting stocking stuffers for Synergy Services.
