And serve each other according to the gift each person has received, as good managers of God’s diverse gifts.”

~ 1 Peter 4:10

Habitat for Humanity

This is one of the most rewarding and tangible ways you can serve our neighbors and show God’s love. Grab a friend and serve together, or come alone. We need everyone! Look for new dates in the Spring of 2023. University UMC will also sponsor a lunch following the building session. To help with lunch, please Contact Pastor Lindsay.

Project 5000

Project 5000 runs yearly. Based on an unforgettable experience in the life of Jesus – the feeding of the 5,000 – this food drive encourages us to give our own small contribution of food and see it multiplied into greater usefulness.  Each box of food is designed to provide emergency food for a family of four for two days.  Click here for more information. 
Thank you for your support of this important ministry!


TABLE’s mission is to provide healthy, emergency food aid every week to hungry elementary school children living in Chapel Hill and Carrboro. Food is collected at University UMC throughout the year for these underprivileged children. To volunteer at TABLE, please contact Brad Allen. Also visit our Giving Garden page. Did you know that last year we donated over 800 pounds of fresh produce from the Giving Garden to TABLE?

Virtual Argentina Mission Trip

We are continuing to build relationship with Cristo Obrero Church in Buenos Aires and their feeding ministry for immigrants, Leche y Miel. When Jesus blessed the 5 small barley loaves it unleashed compassion and generosity among the people.  Let us continue to witness to God’s abundance.
