emergency assistance funds

For years, the local church has been the place those in need in our community come to find love, support and help in some of the darkest times of need. Today this continues. Each month several individuals come to the church asking for assistance - both members and guests. This fund allows CUMC to support those with emergency needs that cannot be met in an appropriate time frame or way through community agencies. Assistance is provided on Thursdays, 9:00-11:00am for the community.

Funds and resources are given confidentially and made possible through the generosity of our church family.
