The missions and ministries that we participate in are important and integral to our church. Serving others and being accepting towards those different than us is a way for us to show God's love and to live how he would want us to. We welcome any volunteers who feel called to help with our missions and we hope that you are able to find a mission that speaks to you!
The majority of the mission work done at United Methodist Church of La Mirada is feeding those in need. We feel as though this is what God has called us to do and it is a way not only to help others, but also to help and get to know the community better. We have a heart for the children, seniors, homeless, hungry and hurting in our own neighborhoods regardless of their faith. Service for us comes from the heart so we look forward to serving alongside those who have a heart for the hungry, the lost, the hurting and the weak, while communicating God’s love in a real and tangible way. For some, they do not worship the same God that we do and may have different beliefs than us, but this makes them no less worthy of our help and our love.

Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins.

Our volunteers work regular hours at the pantry organizing donations, making sandwiches, and giving out care bags to homeless neighbors.

At United Methodist Church of La Mirada, we love to serve in other ways than just through feeding ministries. The United Methodist Committee on Relief responds to U.S. and international disasters, addresses diseases of poverty, ministers to refugees and immigrants, provides clean water and actively works to reduce hunger. The work that UMCOR does for the United Methodist community and the world is extraordinary and one that we passionately give to, especially in times where wildfires raged and caused lots of damage in our backyard and other places around the nation and the globe that were rocked by disaster.
Our church raised $2000 in gifts to Heifer Project International. Heifer helps families around the world get on their feet with livestock and training. Families eat more nutritiously, earn more money, avoid disease, and send children to school instead of work. Find out more at www.heifer.org
