uganda missions

In July 2009, a team of eight from CCUMC traveled to Uganda to be partnership with Youth and Child Visionary Ministries (YCVM). YCVM is committed to raising God-fearing men and women with a passion for Jesus, and to reach out to the lost through evangelism. YCVM is a local Christian effort to care for orphan children of Kumi in Eastern Uganda. Get "Konnected" with our Kumi blog.

welfare reform

Compassion and outreach created the Welfare Reform Ministry Task Force. Its purpose is to be partners in ministry with Asian Health Services (AHS) and CityTeam Ministries in the Chinatown community. Our partnerships included financial support as well as voluntary service.

Financial support enabled Asian Health Services to provide low income, uninsured immigrants with much needed medical and dental care. Annually, the church's toy drive brings joy and laughter to young patients who come to the Asian Health Services clinic during the Christmas season.

Financial support also enabled CityTeam to provide its clients much needed assistance for rental deposits or a month's rent to avoid eviction from their homes.

congregational care

The purpose of a congregational care ministry is to provide distinctively Christian care among members of the congregation, with emphasis for those who are newcomers, homebound or living in retirement homes, nursing homes or assisted living facilities.

esl program

CCUMC previously held English as a Second Language (ESL) classes, but the ESL program was placed on inactive status on February 2010. Folks from all over the community learned or improved their English speaking and writing skills. We provided beginning, intermediate, and advanced English classes. Please email if you are interested in being a student or a volunteer instructor when the ESL program is reactivated.
