CUMC donates to the local Food Pantry

Kudos to our CUMC Gleaning Team who recently harvested and delivered 1,530 lbs of potatoes to the Branch Area Food Pantry.

What is gleaning? Gleaning is the act of collecting leftover crops from farmers' fields after they have been commercially harvested or on fields where it is not economically profitable to harvest. It is a practice described in the Hebrew Bible that became a legally enforced entitlement of the poor in a number of Christian kingdoms.

Celebrating over 10 years of providing FREE meals

Over ten years ago, on July 10, 2008, the Coldwater UMC began serving free meals to those in need or desiring fellowship. Known as the Mary & Martha Diner, the church has served nearly 5,200 meals annually. A different meal is served every Thursday from 4:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. The church has been blessed with volunteers who share in the joy of serving others but always welcomes new volunteers.
