There are many ways to get connected in our UG-UMC community. From bible study classes to the numerous volunteer opportunities that are available, you will be welcomed with open arms. For more information on these programs, please read on or visit our Contact Page to get in touch with the appropriate program contact. Our Pastor is always happy to answer any questions you may have.
The easiest way to get involved at UG-UMC is to participate in our Random Acts of Kindness Community Outreach. It will not cost much, but will let the community know that UGUMC is spreading God’s love.
You decide on how often to do it and at what cost, if any. UG-UMC Kindness Cards are available on the Welcome Table at Church and at the Day Care. You can also contact me at 262-878-1387 or firstname.lastname@example.org and some can be mailed to you. Be sure to carry a few cards with you each day! Don’t overthink your planned/random act of kindness! Have fun with it. Let’s spread the word of GOD’S LOVE! Even the simplest things can make a difference.
