Community Service

About Community Service

Katonah UMC is often described as “small but mighty,” and Purdys UMC is known as “the little church with the big heart.” Here are just a few of the ways we make a difference in our communities.

What We Do


Sharing Meals at Table of Grace

Every Saturday at the First United Methodist Church of Brewster we make up bagged lunches or a hot meal in winter, and hand out/serve to those in need while getting to know the community through conversation.


United Methodist Committee on Relief

As part of our commitment to community service, we assemble UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief) Health Kits, providing essential hygiene items for distribution in disaster-stricken areas.


The Appalachia Service Project

This long-standing mission to Appalachia prepares teens and young adults for a transformative week of not only making homes warmer, safer, and dryer, but a spiritual impact on the volunteers.


Be a Part of Faith in Action Sunday

Once each year we replace our regular worship with service projects such as singing in a nursing home or doing yard work for an affordable housing project.


Emergency Shelter Partnership

During winter, we offer shelter and three daily meals to homeless individuals for a week, providing warmth, nourishment, and a welcoming haven from the cold.


Northern Westchester Community Center

We support food drives, back to school supplies, clothing for special occasions (e.g., Share the Warmth around the winter holidays, Prom Clothing), and other special drives that the Community Center needs.


“The compassionate actions of its members most accurately measure the greatness of a community.”
