At Elk River United Methodist Church, we are responding to the denomination's call to "heal a broken world." We regularly host families experiencing homelessness through Great River Family Promise, support relief efforts of UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief), deliver Meals on Wheels in the community, host the Red Cross blood mobile, and support the local food shelf CAER. Our United Methodist Women encourage support of UMW projects worldwide, including Emma Norton Services and Simpson Shelter in Minneapolis.
The missions team also organizes mission trips. This year, a team is traveling to the Midwest Mission Distribution Center (MMDC) for a week of servanthood. The MMDC helps provide education, medical supplies and education both nationally and internationally.
