We are a fortunate community to have many programs, centers and organizations providing assistance. Christ United Methodist Church (CUMC) members help support these agencies listed by volunteering and giving which enable us to serve others. Because we do not have the resources to handle all requests here at our church, we rely on these programs and centers to help us manage the needs of our community.
