JUMC supports many charities on the local, national, and international levels. We are always looking for new ways to spread the word of God through Mission and Service Projects.

Heifer International was founded on a simple belief: ending hunger begins with giving people the means to feed themselves. Since 1944, Heifer has helped more than 10.5 million hungry families in the United States and 125 other countries move toward self-reliance through the gift of food- and income-producing animals.
Open up a whole new life…

Samaritan’s Purse has changed the lives of children through Operation Christmas Child since 1993. Every year, generous people across the world lovingly pack shoe boxes with gifts – simple, yet powerful messages of God’s unconditional love. And when a child opens a shoe box, they’re opening more than a present lovingly prepared just for them. They’re opening up their community to a world of life-changing opportunities.
