Last month the SOUPer Bowl of caring to tackle hunger was a huge success with $1,567 raised for 3 local hunger relief efforts: the Beth El Center, Milford Food Pantry and Summerfield UMC in Bridgeport.


The United Methodist Women are happy to continue to meet this exciting demand with a soup sale on Saturday, March 13, 2021.


The United Methodist Women at MTM-UMC are a self-funded, local chapter who fundraise to support inclusive projects and programs that benefit women, children and youth.


These ladies are no strangers to soup, as they usually host monthly soup sales in the winter to fund their giving. While our church campus has been closed due to Covid-19, the United Methodist Women funds have been depleting. This event is a chance for us to support women who do so much to improve our church community and local community. Please share with family and friends in Milford.

As work from home began, I found myself with so much time on my hands. At first, the free time was a blessing. There was more time for myself and my family. The commute to work was six steps to the next room. I watched tv, read and attempted to complete puzzles. I thought about all the things I never had time to do and I tried to do all of them.


As the severity of pandemic unfolded we all realized this wasn't a stay-cation. Time started to feel different to me. The days were moving so slowly. I spent some afternoons actively watching the time go by. Now, in January 2021, when posed with a 15 minute task, I know I have the time.


Can you spare 10-15 minutes a day for five days to learn about the foundations of racism and the different ways that it impacts the lives of our neighbors?


The 5-Day Equity Challenge is a self-guided journey shared by United Way of Greater New Haven. Every morning of the 5-day Challenge, you’ll receive an email prompt with readings, videos, or podcasts that last 10-15 minutes.




United Way of Greater New Haven begins 2021 with the launch of the 5-Day Equity Challenge this Monday, January 25. There is time to sign up and join the effort to build an equitable community for all.

The Missions Committee at MTMUMC oversaw several food outreach initiatives over the last month. With the support of our church community, along with neighbors, friends and family, we collected cash and grocery store gift cards, canned goods and "virtual turkeys". We raised approximately $1,400 plus non-perishable food and winter clothing that filled a full size van and three cars! We got the word out to the community to attend six different pop up food pantries in the area and volunteered for the distribution. We brought surplus produce to a homeless shelter, and delivered Farmers to Families food boxes to parishioners and neighbors without transportation. We are all in this together! Praise God! #BridgeportRescueMission #ChristianCommunityAction #APNH #SpoonerHouse #MTMUMC #UMCMission
