Mutual Aid Food Cabinet
Opened on May 1, 2021, the Blue Cabinet has become a regular stopping place for those who need food and supplies
and those who wish to donate. We have a cabinet for non-perishable, unexpired food and supplies
and a cooler with ice to hold perishables in the summer months.
You may add items to the Cabinet directly, or leave donations in the box at the Attic
on Saturdays 9-1 or Mondays 10-12.

Sunday School

Our nursery is open every Sunday welcoming our littlest Christians from infants to pre-K children.
The elementary children (K-4th) will have Sunday school the first and third Sundays of the month.
Craft Sunday is on the second Sunday of the month for all  (K & above) children.
The youth group (5th grade through 12th grade) meets monthly. 

A team of committed volunteers has developed a strong and well attended children’s Sunday School program here at JCUMC.
The program runs from September through June. Children attend the first half of the regular worship service which includes a children’s message followed by the collection of the Noisy Offering (children collect loose change from congregation members in tin buckets which make a lot of noise, hence the name). Each week the Noisy Offering is donated to specific local charities. We conclude with a prayer of thanks and the children then go to their respective Sunday School classes for age appropriate lessons and activities while the remainder of the service continues.

United Methodist Women (United Women of Faith)

Our church has a very active group of women who meet on the first Thursday each month from September - May for fellowship, support and community outreach. All women of Jacksonville Community Church are welcome to join us and participate in our various activities. Each month we also assemble blessing bags and send cards to those who are recovering from illness or are otherwise housebound, or just need extra prayers.

For those in our community who are in need of food for lack of funds, the Trumansburg Food Pantry is available every other Monday. The sign-up process is quite easy.  the hours of distribution are 11:30 am - 12:30 pm and 5:15 - 6:00 pm. There is also an emergency hotline for those who need assistance immediately 607-387-8260.
