First Quarter Mission Focus: United Methodist Committee on Relief

1st Quarter - UMCOR

FUMC’s 1st Quarter Mission Focus is the U.S. Disaster Relief and International Relief Projects. As the humanitarian relief and development arm of The United Methodist Church, the United Methodist Committee on Relief - UMCOR - assists the United Methodists and churches to become involved globally in direct ministry to persons in need. UMCOR comes alongside those who suffer from natural or human-caused disasters-famine, hurricane, war, flood, fire, or other events - to alleviate suffering and serve as a source of help and hope for the vulnerable. More information found here. Make checks payable to Warsaw First UMC and indicate in the memo line either U.S. Disaster or International Relief (undesignated will be split 50/50).

Community Kitchen & Closet

Community Kitchen Every Wednesday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Community Closet Every Wednesday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. (closed 1st Wednesday)

The Community Kitchen and Closet has been relocated to hosting lunch inside!  Come join us at 179 S. Indiana Street.

First United Methodist Church has a long history of serving a soup kitchen out of the Fellowship Hall at our downtown campus.  For many years, that meal was served on the last two business days of each month.  In early 2009, we discerned a change in the needs of the community and began serving every Wednesday.  We have a number of other churches and community groups who partner with us to make these meals possible.

We are always looking for groups or individuals to partner with to help provide Wednesday lunches to those in the community who need them.  If you would like to participate, please contact the church office at office@warsawfumc.org.


The Community Closet was opened in the fall of 2009.  Items that are not covered by food stamps (toiletries and cleaning products) are offered as they are available. Contact the Church Office if you are interested in supporting this ministry with your time or donations. Cash donations may be made at the Church office.
