Outreach Team
OUTREACH TEAM

All are welcome.
This sentiment of welcome is one of the most important things we, as Christians, can offer our community.

Rest comes in many forms and our Outreach Team is being designed to seek out those who are weary and burdened so that they might know the love of Jesus Christ through Hernando UMC.

We will share this love in tangible ways by trying to meet our community's spiritual, physical, and emotional needs by welcoming them into the loving body of Christ that is our church.

Please join us if you'd like to be part of this powerful outreach ministry.
Contact Kathryn Calverley, at 352-209-7051 with any questions.

I hope to see you there!
Kathryn Calverley
Director of the Outreach Team



Citrus County Blessings
CITRUS COUNTY BLESSINGS, SILENCING WEEKEND HUNGER
www.citruscountyblessings.org

Citrus County Blessings, Silencing Weekend Hunger is a remarkable grassroots initiative dedicated to combatting food insecurity among children in Citrus County, Florida. Understanding that many children who rely on school meal programs face hunger over the weekends, this organization has taken it upon itself to bridge the gap. Through a network of dedicated volunteers, they gather and distribute nutritious food packs discreetly to those in need, ensuring that no child goes hungry during the weekends. Citrus County Blessings' compassionate approach not only provides essential sustenance but also preserves the dignity and self-esteem of the children they serve. By silencing the pangs of hunger, this organization is making a profound impact on the lives of young ones, fostering a stronger, healthier community for the future.

Hernando United Methodist Church (UMC) plays a crucial role in supporting the impactful efforts of Citrus County Blessings, an organization dedicated to combatting weekend hunger among children in our community. Every first Thursday of the month, dedicated volunteers from Hernando UMC come together to sort and distribute essential food items in carefully packed grocery bags, ensuring that schoolchildren have access to nourishment over the weekends. If you are passionate about making a difference and want to contribute to this noble cause, we welcome you to join our compassionate team of volunteers. To get involved, please reach out to Frank Williams or the church office, and together, let's create a brighter future for the children in need within our community.
