The RiversEdge United Methodist Church Food Pantry distributes food, clothing, and other necessities to 60-70 families in our community each month. We willingly and gladly answer Jesus’ call to feed the hungry. It takes many willing hands to make each distribution a success. It can be physically demanding work, so the more hands we have, the lighter the load. Come join us as we meet the risen Christ in this work.
RiversEdge United Methodist Church proudly hosts bi-monthly blood drives. The importance of blood to our human life cannot be understated. We Christians remember how Christ shed His blood for all, so we pay it forward by helping others live when their health has been compromised.
Christ’s love encompasses all of life, including education. The RiversEdge United Methodist Church’s Backpack Buddy ministry helps to provide children with school supplies if their household income is challenged. This ministry serves our local grade school, Riverview Elementary. We strive to serve our neighbors in need.
RiversEdge United Methodist Church supports the Weekend Snackpac program at our local schools; the Riverview Grade School and Metamora High School. This program provides low-income students with nourishing and healthy snacks to improve their focus and performance on weekends.
Our church conducts an annual August rummage sale. All items are donated by the church members, and all purchases are by donation only. The proceeds from the sale support our mission activities throughout the year.
