At Urbana UMC, we believe in helping others, not because they may need it, but because we serve out of love. Serving others ignites our faith and ignites the faith of those we help. Each quarter we provide a few opportunities to reach out and help others. You choose the time that works for you on that Sunday afternoon and we provide the activity!

Mark your calendars now for our 4 Serve Sundays this year:
March 21st, June 27th, September 19th and December 19th.
Sign up by texting the key word in each activity to 937-563-4593

Here are our 4 activities for June 27th.
Register for as many as you would like!

Text YARDWORK to 937-563-4593 to Register

Dig in and help various people get some yardwork done!  We will work in small groups and on small projects to lend a hand for those that need some help getting their yard in order.  Weeding, planting and pruning are all a part of the day.  Once you register,  you will receive an address and a more detailed description of what needs done.

Sweets for First Responders
Text SWEETS to 937-563-4593 to Register

Take some time to make something special to thank our first responders and healthcare workers in Urbana.  As you make your treat, pray over them and then deliver them to specified places on June 27th.  Once you register, a place will be provided for you to deliver to.

Revamp our Sunday School Wing
Text REVAMP to 937-563-4593 to Register

Our downstairs Sunday School Wing needs some freshening up.  Come help us take wallpaper down and add a coat of paint.  There are also some foam slabs to attach to the ceiling for some sound proofing as well.


Food for One
Text MEALS to 937-563-4593 to Register

Cooking for one is hard and it is often tempting to just grab a snack rather than eat healthy!  Prepare a meal or a couple of meals for a single/widowed person in our congregation.  Package in individual portions that they can eat or freeze.  It’s sharing love in a home cooked meal!  Once you register, a name will be provided and you can deliver the meal(s) in the afternoon on June 27th.
