Outreach Ministries

"And you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." (Acts 1: 8b)

Through word and deed, we try to fulfill Jesus' call by reaching out to others both locally and globally.

  • Our After School Care Program is an important outreach in our community.  Click here for more info.

  • We have a small food pantry at the church and provide food to families in need by request.

  • Our local benevolent fund, Golden Cross, helps individuals and families in the Walls area with financial assistance when emergencies arise.

  • Through our Mission Shares to the Mississippi Conference of The United Methodist Church, we support ministries around our state and world.  We also collect special offerings throughout the year for various ministries
