Ways We Regularly Serve

Love God. Love People. 

In the Gospel of Matthew a lawyer asks Jesus a question, “Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest?” Jesus said to him, “’You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the greatest and first commandment. And a second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.”

At Fairview we strive follow this two-fold love command. With the help of the Holy Spirit we strive to love God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength and our neighbors as ourselves.

We participate in many service projects throughout the year. 

Loaves and Fishes

Our Loaves and Fishes Meal Night is every fifth Wednesday. We plan the meal, cook, serve, and clean up.

Loaves and Fishes is located inside of Wilkes Boulevard United Methodist Church at 702 Wilkes Blvd in Columbia.

To help with these meals you can pray, cook, bake, volunteer on site setting up, serving the meal, and cleaning up.

Room at the Inn

Room at the Inn is now open year round! Please consider signing up to serve or bring food.

You can serve in many different ways - Food Prep, Food Prep and Food Service, Check-in Volunteer, Morning Crew, and Laundry Transport.

Talk to your friends, family, your Sunday School class, or small group and see if anyone else wants to volunteer with you!

UMCOR Relief Supplies

Relief supplies provide care for the most vulnerable following a disaster or during times of crisis.

United Methodist Committee on Relief or UMCOR collects relief supplies in the form of cleaning kits, hygiene kits and menstrual hygiene kits.  In the event of a disaster kits are distributed in the United States and its territories.

We help assemble these kits with other United Methodists at the Missouri Annual Conference Disaster Response facility here in Columbia.

Mobility Worldwide

We collect very clean half gallon and gallon milk and juice bottles along with very clean empty cans with labels removed - like you get soup or vegetables in for Mobility Worldwide. These are used as packing material when mobility carts are shipped overseas.

You can place these items in the blue barrel in the narthex. Please leave the lids on jugs.

Best Choice Labels

Our United Women in Faith group collects Best Choice, Clearly by Best Choice and Best Choice Superior Selections labels (from Moser's).

For every 1000 UPCs we submit, UWF will receive $30 to use in our mission to help women and children.

You can place your labels in the Save a Label can on the Resource Table in the Narthex.
