How We Serve

Risk-Taking Missions

“Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.” (Matthew 25:40)

“Risk-Taking Mission and Service includes the projects, the efforts, and work people do to make a positive difference in the lives of others for the purposes of Christ, whether or not they will ever be part of the community of faith. … Risk-Taking Mission and Service is one of the fundamental activites of church life that is so critical that failure to practice it in some form results in a deterioration of the church’s vitality and ability to make disciples of Jesus Christ.”
– Robert Schnase, Five Practices of Fruitful Congregations

We believe that there is no greater way to experience God’s love than to be God’s love for others. As you grow more comfortable at SUMC, we hope to provide ways for you to be God’s love.
