Carson  Valley Community Food Closet

We hold Harvest of Thanksgiving Sundays on the 3rd Sunday of every month.

The congregation is invited to bring nonperishable food items (or paper goods) to the altar prior to the service. All items are then donated to the local Carson Valley Community Food Closet. Please help those who are in need in our community.

Thank you! Click on this link to view their website www.carsonvalleycommunityfoodcloset.org

 

Jail Ministry

Our pastor and volunteers visit the local Douglas County Jail inmates once a month on the 5th Friday. We are on a rotating schedule with other local churches in our area.  We meet with the inmates (males & females, in separate groups) from about 1:30-4:30pm.  We read scripture, discuss and pray together.  We often use the Upper Room publication as a basis for our worship.  We currently need more volunteers for this ministry. Please contact the main office if you are interested and the pastor will contact you. Please note: volunteers for this program must be fingerprinted through Douglas Co. This process can take anywhere from 2-4 weeks to be approved etc.


Community Organizations

The CVUMC helps to support local agencies and organizations. We will be posting more information about those donations on our website. Some support comes directly from the United Methodist Women and we will post that information on their page.

Local Outreach


Project School Days

This August the CVUMC collected a huge amount of school supplies for our local school children & teens. Supplies are collected for families in the Douglas County School District who need assistance providing all those notebooks, pens, backpacks etc. This year they added the following schools to their distribution area: A.S.P.I.R.E., Aurora Pines and China Springs, youth at Austin's House and youth in the local CASA program.  The level of generosity was HUGE this year! Thank you to all who donated! We received a letter of thanks from Director Marilyn Malkmus;
