MISSIONS & OUTREACH

The Missions and Outreach at Wendell United Methodist Church focuses on reaching out from the church into the community to help those in need.  Our ministries include the Food Pantry, Meals on Wheels, and mission trips.  If  you are interested, we welcome new volunteers in each of these ministries.  Contact the church at 919-365-6266.

Meals on Wheels

• WHAT IT IS: Meals on Wheels of Wake County provides hot, nutritious lunches to the homebound elderly and persons with disabilities via volunteer drivers five days a week, Monday through Friday. Wendell UMC covers one route, picking up the prepared meals from the East Wake Senior Center in Wendell and delivering them to the homes.

• HOW YOU CAN HELP: Make a commitment to deliver meals a certain day each month. Routes typically take an hour to complete. Not only are you delivering food, you are providing perhaps the only social interaction a person will have on a given day, as well as often checking up on their well-being.

Mission Trips

• WHAT IT IS: Mission trips can involve sending organized work teams out for anything from a day trip to help an indigent elderly person with home repairs to extended trips to help rebuild entire communities after natural disasters. Wendell UMC is organizing teams to go out and help with Hurricane Matthew relief and recovery in eastern North Carolina. We also have given financial support to mission trips organized by our youth groups. Volunteers have also built handicapped ramps on homes and worked on Habitat for Humanity projects.

• HOW YOU CAN HELP: When a work team is being organized, sign up and go. If you are willing to help, there will be something that you can do.

• WHO TO CONTACT: The Church office at 919-365-6266
