Local missions

There are many ways to be the hands and feet of Christ in active service to our local community.

Our desire to SERVE is reflected in our church budget and in the people who generously volunteer. 

  • Loaves & Fishes

    Volunteers deliver 240+ meals on Tuesday afternoons to residents in several communities around Pell City who otherwise might not have a hot, nutritious meal due to health or financial difficulties.


  • Suzanne's Holiday Meals

    On three major holidays of the year --Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter-- dedicated servants gather to prepare and deliver meals to those in the local community who might not otherwise experience a full belly with food that has been lovingly prepared. The ministry is named in honor of Suzanne Wright who championed it.

  • Pack-a-Snack

    Each week during the school year, over 365 food-insecure students from Iola Roberts, Walter M. Kennedy, and Eden Elementary Schools, receive two salty, two sweet, and two fruit snacks. Volunteers pack these snacks each Wednesday at 4:45 PM before our mid-week meals in the Beacon.


  • Hometown Mission Projects

    Some people can't leave work and family for a week-long mission trip, but are glad to volunteer in local, mini mission trips. Several times a year, as needed, a team assembles to complete projects, such as replacing floors or building wheelchair ramps, in the greater Pell City area. Some volunteers work for several days while others can give only a day or two. Either way, there is great joy in the fellowship while helping neighbors in need and still getting to sleep in your own bed at night.


  • Community Outreach

    PCFUMC partners with other local churches and resource agencies to help individuals and families find empowerment through the grace of God and the Body of Christ. Our main avenue of crisis assistance is through utility assistance when termination of service is threatened. For inquiries concerning assistance or to set up an appointment with our Community Outreach Director, please contact the church office at 205-338-3374 or communityoutreach@pellcityfumc.org.

  • Pell City High School Senior Scholarships

    Each year PCFUM offers two $500 book scholarships for deserving Pell City High School students selected in collaboration with school guidance counselors.


  • Kid's Night Out for Foster Families

    Come and help us share the love of Christ with children in foster care. Two to four times a year we gather in the Beacon to eat, play, create, and simply have fun with local foster children while their foster parents get a much needed break.

  • Back-to-School Backpack Ministry

    Working with guidance counselors to identify students in need, in July each year, church volunteers provide local school children a backpack filled with school supplies and a shoe voucher for use at a local shoe store.

  • Veterans Home

    One Sunday a month we provide an afternoon worship service for veterans at the Colonel Robert L. Howard Veterans Home in Pell City. Volunteers from our church visit with residents, provide a Bible lesson, and lead singing of familiar hymns.
