Community Services

Many community events were discontinued or moved online due to the global pandemic. We are still in the process of deciding which will be brought back and when. The one which has resumed is: 

 

  • Community Craft Fellowship  Group

    • Thursdays 10 am to noon

As a congregation, we recognize that each person is free to take whatever precautions seem necessary to preserve their own health and the health of all who gather this day.  While this includes when and where to wear masks, the consensus of the leaders of the Middleton UMC is to recommend that each individual wear a mask while in the church building in settings where it is not feasible to socially distance or take other precautions.

Hygiene Kits

In response to the great need of many individuals and families across the Treasure Valley, the Middleton UMC has decided to create Hygiene Kits to be distributed by the local Food Pantry, Food Bank, and homeless shelters. We believe that in creating and distributing these kits, we can help those in need take a small step toward self-sufficiency and perhaps understand that God’s love for them can come in a variety of forms.

If you would like to help us with this project, just collect some (or all) of the items to create a kit and bring it with you on Sunday morning, or call the church to arrange a time for us to receive your gift. The items we are collecting are:

Middleton United Methodist Church Hygiene Kits
