The “Scoop” on our Food Ministries
Mentor UMC provides for the nutritional needs of many in our community through several programs of our Food Ministry.

There are two meal ministries that happen the first Wednesday of every month. They are a dinner for the residents of Project Hope for the Homeless and Meal Blessing. A meal is prepared to take to the homeless shelter residents of Project Hope in Painesville. At the same time, meals are individually wrapped and drivers take them to our church members and friends that could use a Meal Blessing.
If you would like to participate by cooking, delivering, or making a monetary donation, contact the Church Office at 440-255-3496.

More Than A Meal
More Than a Meal is a food ministry of MUMC that gives a sense of connection as well as a meal. Many of those who need food are also in need of seeing a smile and hearing a kind word. 
On the last Saturday of each month, we cook a meal, pack individual servings, and offer drive-thru pick-up for anyone who would like a meal. You can help cook, pack meals, clean up, or hand out meals while interacting with guests.
Often a group will get together to work the meal and enjoy fellowship while giving back to the community. The time commitment is four hours. The gift of your time and energy is much needed!

Giving Tree

Beginning today, Sunday, November 21, the Giving Trees are up! We are doing a combination of the “old” way and the “new “ way.

There are names on the tree in the gallery of children to donate gifts to. These are mostly single-child families.

On the Signup Genius are families with 2 or more children. If you are planning on picking several children, please visit the Signup Genius and bless a whole family. Gifts are due back to MUMC by December 12 at noon.


Please note: The distribution of gifts is December 13 and 14. Gifts must be brought in, wrapped and on time by December 12, to be given out. As soon as your gifts are ready, please feel free to bring them up to the church. We have secure storage for them.
