Local Church Opportunities

Cargill UMC offers many different opportunities for you to be involved.  Active participation and hands-on service will connect you with the Cargill UMC faith community and your relationship with God. Click Here to see the variety of committees responsible for ministry support at Cargill United Methodist Church.  Some of these committees are requirements of the United Methodist Discipline, others are needs that we see at our local church level.  If you have an interest or talent in any of these areas, feel free to contact any staff member or the contact person listed.  New committee members are specifically solicited in the fall for the following calendar year, but feel free to express your interest at any time! There are other event, activity or group opportunities for involvement.  Watch for announcements, calendar events,  or contact the church office for more information…
