Food Drive Challenge Surpasses Goal

What an amazing church we have! This month, our church held its annual Food Drive Challenge to collect food items for the Good Samaritan Center.

Our mission team wanted to beat our previous record of 9,000 lbs. Yesterday, we turned in our collections to the GSC and guess what our total was. (Drum roll please!) 11,592 POUNDS of FOOD for the pantry!!! We did it again!

God bless everyone who rose to the occasion and gave what they could for our community and for the Good Samaritan Center. The spirit of God is alive within your hearts and our mission team sincerely thanks you.

Join us this Sunday, Aug. 6 at 10 a.m. as we have our CELEBRATION SUNDAY. The mission team and Pastor Laura will treat the congregation and guests to a very special treat.


Our mission to put free or affordable diapers in the hands of mothers in Excelsior Springs and Richmond: 

To qualify for free diapers, you must live within the Excelsior Springs or Richmond school district, and be at or below 150 percent of the Federal Poverty Level.
We are available at the United Methodist Church in Excelsior every Monday evening, from 6:15 to 7:15, and the second Tuesday of the month, from 9 to 3.
