Cayce UMC reaches out to its congregation, visitors and the community through its Missions program. Volunteers and leaders within the church help us in conducting and designing programs that not only allow us to share the love and caring of Christ, but are entertaining and uplifting as well. Volunteers for our Missions program have often expressed the joys of the spiritual blessing they received by helping others.

Providing Near and Far
God’s Helping Hands
God’s Helping Hands is a ministry of love and concern. Called to action by God, we are to be sensitive to the needs of society and the church. To this end, God’s Helping Hands supplies food, clothing and rent and utility bill financial assistance to those in need. This is a religious-based organization and many Cayce UMC members volunteer to help at the God’s Helping Hands center. Some church volunteers serve on the organization’s administrative board.

Since 1993, more than 100 million boys and girls in over 130 countries have experienced God’s love through the power of simple shoebox gifts from Operation Christmas Child.
