Get Involved

Read Liturgy

Can you read in a clear, expressive voice? Have we got a job for you! Join our Liturgy team and read Bible passage aloud at our Sunday services. Contact Pastor Leah (leah@northeastumc.com) to get into the rotation.

Serve a Community Meal

Northeast UMC serves two free community meals each month, on the second and third Saturdays. It’s a time when everyone pitches in to provide a hearty, healthy meal and friendship. You can support this mission by providing an entree or a side dish, by running the dishwasher, or simply sharing a meal with our neighbors. Contact Pastor Hope at hope@northeastumc.com to volunteer.

Help Our Garden Grow

A community garden is an ambitious undertaking, especially when it involves the pastor’s backyard, and the churchyard. If you can dig, plant or pull weeds, come and join us! The produce from our garden is used at our community meals, or sent to the Little Kitchen Food Shelf. We can excess foods to sell at our own fundraisers. We’re even growing our own altar flowers! Contact Pastor Hope at hope@northeastumc.com to volunteer.

Make Bags for UMCOR

Each bag should contain:

  • 1 pair blunt scissors (rounded tip)
  • 3 pads (or loose leaf) 8 1/2″ x 11″ ruled paper
  • 1 30-centimeter ruler
  • 1 hand-held pencil sharpener
  • 6 unsharpened pencils with erasers
  • 1 eraser, 2 1/2″
  • 1 box of 24 crayons (only 24)

Prepare a 14″ x 16″ (finished size) cloth bag with handles and an optional closure (Velcro, snap or button) and place items in the bag. You can download instructions for this project and others from UMCOR, the United Methodist Committee on Relief.

Deliver Meals on Wheels

Deliver hot food and a warm smile to people in Northeast who can’t get out and about. Contact Suzanne Olson at Eastside Meals on Wheels for more information.

Donate to the food Shelf

Northeast United Methodist collects food for the neighborhood food shelf on the first Sunday of every month. Bring your donations to church and place them in the shopping cart in the church lobby (narthex). Donated items are delivered to the Salvation Army on Central Avenue. Some suggested food items include canned fruit, peanut butter, canned tuna, cheese, baked beans, macaroni, vegetables, soups, diapers, toilet paper and paper towels. Contact Pastor Hope at hope@northeastumc.com to volunteer.
