Wesley UMC believes we are called to serve others toward bringing justice to the world. As a church we have a number of signature service efforts supported regularly by members of the congregation. We welcome any and all to join us in our community service efforts, listed below with links for more information on how you can help.
For information on other mission projects at Wesley UMC, please go to our Mission & Fellowship page.
Northern Rhode Island Food Bank
Each month Wesley UMC collects a specific list of food items needed by the food bank such as pancake mixes, peanut butter, canned meats etc. They usually need approximately 400 of each item and we aim to collect that many of the designated item(s) each month.
Habitat for Humanity, West Bay & Northern RI
Habitat for Humanity International is a Christian organization and welcomes volunteers from all faiths who are committed to Habitat’s goal of eliminating sub-standard housing. Members from Wesley UMC regularly participate in Habitat builds or in providing lunches for build teams.
Bridge Liberia is an effort founded by Wesley member Donowea Seidi to provide much needed school supplies to children in her home country of Liberia. Many children do not even have the basics of pencil and paper, making learning even more challenging. Wesley has been a central provider of supplies and packing location since 2015.
