Mission Central is blessed with volunteers who make things happen and help continue to spread the word of God’s love. Whether you can volunteer regularly or just one time, alone or with a group (of any size), Mission Central can use your gifts and talents.
Needs range from general warehouse labor, to assembling UMCOR Kits, to taking inventory and assorting donated materials, to maintenance of the building and property. No talent or offer of time is too small. Prayerfully consider what God may be leading you to do.
