In your own way and your own time, you will feel that you are a part of a Church that reaches out both in the community and in the world to those in need. ELUMC helps out in many projects including Justice for Our Neighbors, Revitalize Springfield, Convoy of Hope, Habitat for Humanity, Heifer Project International and Church World Service.
We prepare hundreds of meals every month in our kitchen, and transport them to the Loaves and Fishes Kitchen of the Springfield Open Pantry where we help in serving the meals. To get involved, show up in the ELUMC kitchen from 8:30 to 11:00 a.m. on the third Wednesday of the month.
ELUMC is also the founder of the Pioneer Valley Free Health Service and continues to provide staff for this local weekly clinic. The current site of the Pioneer Valley Free Health Service is 281 Maple Street in East Longmeadow (at the Reproductive Center of Western Mass). Free health services are offered every Wednesday evening from 6:15-8:00 p.m. on a first-come, first-served basis. There is no proof of residency, income or insurance required. Phone is 525-3866. If you wish to be a regular volunteer, leave a message or drop by some Wednesday to meet them. Several church members are part of the core volunteer team and can provide more information on volunteering to visitors to our Sunday services.

Convoy of Hope is returning to Springfield on August 15, 2015. Here's the "trailer" taken at the previous Convoy of Hope (2013) where ELUMC ran the Family Portraits tent.
