Serve

One of the most important ways we demonstrate our love for Jesus is to serve others in Jesus’ name. We’re called to make a difference in our church, in our community, in our country and in our world. Our PRAY-GIVE-GO mission strategy allows everyone to PRAY for those in need, some to GIVE financial resources to help recovery efforts, and still others to physically GO to locations needing help. Be sure to visit our social media pages or to learn more email serve@rumc.org.

Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be. My Father will honor the one who serves me.
(John 12:26)

Send an email to serve@rumc.org for more information about getting involved with any of our ministry opportunities.

Local

We partner with ministries right in our own backyard to make a difference in our community. We have opportunities to serve the students at the Hannah Ashton Middle School in our neighborhood, the H.E.A.R.T. Food Pantry and Joseph’s Coat Free Store, cleaning up our Reynoldsburg community, our Free Community Thanksgiving Meal, and more.

Domestic

National disasters are always presenting opportunities to mobilize teams to help with repair and recovery. Through our partnership with the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR), we identify the need and determine what resources are required. We have recently sent teams to Oklahoma following tornados and Florida and New Jersey following hurricanes. Send an email to serve@rumc.org for more information about getting involved in disaster relief.

Our current partnerships with McCurdy Ministries in Espanola, New Mexico; the S.O.W.E.R. Project in Frakes, Kentucky; and Wesley Woods Camp in Grand Valley, Pennsylvania provide additional opportunities for those with a heart for serving across our country.

Global

People all over the world are in need of hearing the Good News of Jesus. Be part of spreading the news to our brothers and sisters through our current global focus in Haiti with our partner Servants in Fellowship and Romania where we share the love and word of God by serving and meeting the needs of the local communities. We also partner with Feed My Starving Children to pack and provide meals to underdeveloped countries. Click HERE to learn about current global mission trips.
