The Last Week Supper meals can be picked up at the church or delivered to homes on the last Wednesday of the month. Currently, we are preparing around 200 meals each month.

Community Coffee Hour: God created us to be social creatures. The Millerton UMC noticed there was a need for a gathering space in the community so every Monday at 7:30 a.m. we host a coffee hour that is open to everyone.

Prayer Shawls: We give out prayer shawls to people in our communities who have lost loved ones and to those who are struggling with health issues. We gave out 84 prayer shawls in 2023 and over 326 for the total since this ministry began! Those who crochet the prayer shawls meet together on the 2nd Tuesday of the month at 9:30 a.m. at the Corydon United Methodist Church.

Quilt Group: Our quilt group serves as a way to build fellowship as people come together to cut fabric, sew, and quilt as well as a way to share the love of Jesus as we give the quilts to people in our communities.

Collection for Missions: We support a variety of missions by collecting food, educational supplies, and money. On the 1st Sunday of the month, we collect money for Aid & Assistance which helps county residents who cannot pay their bills. On the 4th Sunday of the month, we collect money and non-perishable items for the local food pantry. Throughout the summer and fall we collect educational items and hygiene items that are taken to Midwest Missions.

In 2023 our Aid & Assistance Fund helped people in Wayne County cover $14,139 in rent, utilities, gas for work/appointments, and medication.
