For generations, Jarvis Memorial United Methodist Church has shown and shared our love of God by helping our neighbors in time of need. 

Our neighbors need us now. Listed below are some of the ways you can participate in our flood relief.

Work days 

The church is coordinating service opportunities and is regularly sending out calls for volunteers as specific needs present themselves. Please use this opportunity to make sure the church office has a complete set of contact information for you, including email and mobile phone number.
