Food Pantry: With assistance from others in our community we sponsor and host the Watseka Area Food Pantry.  The food pantry helps provide food security to many families in our community.  This is a vital extension of Christ’s love to others.  Your participation is always appreciated.  Answering the phone, stocking shelves, unloading shipments of food are some of the ways you can help support this important ministry.  If you need assistance, would like to volunteer or need more information please call: 815-432-0122.  The food pantry is affiliated with the Eastern Illinois Foodbank and Midwest Foodbank.

Financial Giving: Each year our church gives financially to support ministries both locally and globally.  Through the Untied Methodist Church we support missionaries around the world, assist in disaster relief and help fund other vital ongoing ministries to the poor, sick and under-educated.

Rummage Sale: Each year we hold two rummage sales; in the spring and fall.  All proceeds go to local and global missions.  If you have items to donate or if you would like to shop at the rummage sales, call the church to find out more information at 815-432-4903.  Our next sale will be in September.
