Serve

Local

We believe that we are called to be doers of God’s word, not hearers only. We believe that our posture in the world should reflect God’s posture - one of active engagement. We offer the following local opportunities for engaging in mission and service in our community.

Go Snacks

Go Snacks is a service ministry of SUMC that provides weekend snacks to elementary children in need. A bulletin board with lists of snacks that are needed is in Fellowship Hall and donations are greatly appreciated. Volunteers are needed weekly and monthly to help - see details here.

Kids Hope USA

This mentoring program at Willow Creek Elementary school is a very active way that SUMC members share the love of Christ. Visit our Kids Hope USA page to learn more.

Presbyterian Night Shelter

Once a month, small groups from SUMC pack sandwiches for the Presbyterian Night Shelter, the only free emergency homeless shelter in Fort Worth. If you would like to get involved with the sandwich packing ministry, please contact Rev. Jason Valendy in the church office.

Community Link Mission

This local food pantry for area residents is located on the property of SUMC and was founded by this congregation. Donations of food items are always accepted at SUMC. Community Link is staffed primarily by volunteers who distribute food on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. If you would like to volunteer, please visit the Community Link Website for more information.

Lake Worth Nursing Home

SUMC hosts quarterly birthday parties at this local nursing home, which has many residents who do not receive frequent visits. Help is always needed to host these birthday parties. We communicate in worship a few weeks before a party is scheduled with information of how you can get involved. For details, contact Terry Sullivan, Director of Caring Ministry.

Saginaw Water Project

A new ministry at SUMC, the Saginaw Water Project is a Holy Focus goal that provides water utility assistance to Saginaw residents. SUMC has partnered with the City of Saginaw in this project. Communion rail offerings on Sunday mornings support the Saginaw Water Project, as well as designated gifts.
