pastor's discretionary

It's not a hand out, but a hand up. All monetary gifts are used to help with gas, groceries, car repairs, utilities, and other needs that our friends and neighbors have from time to time. We are called to live simply so others might simply live. 

If at any time you have a need due to loss of wages, staying home with kids, or other costs due to the health concerns, please contact Ruth Ann Holmes.  The Pastor's Discretionary Fund assists with the following:

  • utilities
  • gas cards
  • grocery cards (and assistance with other direct food programs)
  • supplies for schooling from home
  • medicine or medical bills
  • car repairs
  • rent/mortgage payments
  • and more! Let us know if you have a need! Your church family would love to be able to help. 

If you need help, contact the church

July 3, 2018 opened doors to a new era in the Marshall area. Oaklawn Hospital has partnered with us to open a store at 413 Michigan Ave in downtown Marshall. 

If you have something you are no longer using, you will be able to bring it in and drop it off. If you need something, you can come pick it up. No money exchanged. Just neighbors being neighbors. 

Medical Supply Room

At Marshall UMC
Do you know that Marshall UMC has a classroom dedicated to help those in need with free medical supplies?  
Everything from wheelchairs, to crutches, depends, boost and more.  It's all free to you to use as long as you need it.  If it comes back for others to use, great, if not, no worries.

A local agency that helps people get back on their feet

We support their work with ongoing clothing collections, cash donations, and some of our members offer volunteer time on site. They have a store for the public with great hand made items, as well as other great merchandise, that helps fund their work. They also have a free store for those in great need.
