The congregation of the South Yarmouth United Methodist Church is committed to putting our faith and love into action by attempting to address the needs of our community and the world.
Pastor'€™s Discretionary Fund
We give to and raise money for the pastor’s discretionary fund, which enables him to give food certificates and other assistance to people in need.
Habitat for Humanity
In addition to building a house for Habitat for Humanity in South Yarmouth, we have renewed our covenant with Habitat and sponsor fund-raising efforts to raise money for more builds. One of our members helped build a Habitat house for Katrina victims.
Dennis-Yarmouth Ecumenical Council (DYECH)
We participate in many activities of the Dennis-Yarmouth Ecumenical Council for the Prevention of Homelessness, which is approaching the one-million-dollar mark of funds raised. Our activities include selling food certificates every Sunday, from which local supermarkets contribute 5% of all money collected to DYECH. One of our members guides the Annual Ham and Bean Supper for DYECH and many of our members participate.
Housing Assistance Corporation
Our church participates in the annual Housing Assistance Corporation Walk for the Homeless and Homeless Prevention.
