Serving God by Serving Others

CUMC served God by serving others recently by distributing 100 boxes of food to community neighbors. Thank you for your generosity. 


On Friday, March 8, 2022, a tractor trailer truck from Blessings of Hope in Leola, PA, brought a truck load of food to be delivered and distributed by Cheverly UMC and First Hyattsville UMC. 

First stop for delivery was Cheverly UMC. The delivery continues the CUMC's commitment to address food insecurity in our area. The delivery included snacks for lunches for unhoused county residents as well as 100 boxes of food that were distributed to the families of Gladys Noon Spellman Elementary School and residents of the Cheverly Station Apartments.

Ways to Support Ministry and Humanitarian Aid in the Ukraine



TUESDAY, APRIL 12, 2022 @ 7PM




The United Methodist Church provides numerous ministries in the Ukraine and neighboring countries through the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR). Here are some ways that you can help people in the Ukrainian as well as refugees.   







The Lenten Fast

This year when you fast, why not contribute what you would have spent on food to an agency supporting ministry or humanitarian aid to people of Ukraine. 



Kids in Church

Isaiah 58: 6-10

“Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen:
to loose the chains of injustice
   and untie the cords of the yoke,
to set the oppressed free
   and break every yoke?
7 Is it not to share your food with the hungry
   and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter—
when you see the naked, to clothe them,
   and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?
8 Then your light will break forth like the dawn,
   and your healing will quickly appear;
then your righteousness[a] will go before you,
   and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard.
9 Then you will call, and the Lord will answer;
   you will cry for help, and he will say: Here am I.

“If you do away with the yoke of oppression,
   with the pointing finger and malicious talk,
10 and if you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry
   and satisfy the needs of the oppressed,
then your light will rise in the darkness,
   and your night will become like the noonday.
