Reach, Serve, and Love like Christ


The grace that comes through the death and resurrection of Christ propels us out into world in ministries of justice and compassion and in witness to God's salvation.  We faithfully strive to provide for the physical, relational, and spiritual needs of those around us. 

Here are a couple of Outreach events at Orange City UMC:

Night for Freedom Annual Event

The H.O.P.E. Team (Helpers Of People Enslaved) holds an annual event supporting the victims of human trafficking and raising awareness. 

3rd Saturday Community Connection

This is an exciting ministry that helps us live out our mission to Reach, Serve, and Love like Christ.  We provide a variety of services on one place to try and meet the needs of our friends and neighbors in the community, including members of our congregation.
