Missions and Outreach

Outreach to our local and global communities is at the heart of what we do and who we are at SUMC. Whether through ongoing projects supported by weekly efforts or through once-in-a-lifetime opportunities to step out of our comfort zones and be the hands and feet of Christ, we think outreach is a vital sign of following Jesus.


There are so many ways you can take a risk with us and see your own life transformed through caring for the least of these in our village and our world. Scroll down to see how you can make a difference today. If you have questions about how to help, contact our Outreach Director, Rolly Correa at rcorrea@saladoumc.org.
