First United Methodist is proud to partner with various mission organizations within our community and around the world. Here are just a few of the mission projects we support throughout the year:

  • Through our partnership with CARE PORTAL, we meet real-time needs of children and families in crisis in our area. Through Care Portal, we have provided beds and bedding to families, purchased clothes for a foster family, assisted the Excelsior Springs School District with distributing undergarments and personal care items, and sponsored a local student's uniform and sports equipment needs. 
  • We regularly support the local ministry endeavors of the GOOD SAMARITAN CENTER and MEET THE NEED through our Fifth Sunday Food Drives, Adopt-a-Family Christmas Program, and sponsoring holiday meals and gift card purchases.
  • We adopt students from Nicaragua through the RAINBOW NETWORK. Through this partnership, students were given the opportunity to finish high school, a milestone goal in their country.
  • Each fall, we collect mittens, gloves, and winter hats for our local elementary schools, so that they may distribute to students in need.
  • We regular contribute to our denominational disaster relief and care fund, UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief).
