The Second Sunday Food Collections continue to be an important SUMC mission effort. The staff at the school shares its appreciation for our faithful mission effort and reminds us that, when children are well-fed, they’re happier, healthier and better students. These collections are coordinated by Manna, the hunger awareness activities of our Church and Society committee. “Manna” is also seeking volunteers for our increasingly busy mission work. Call Susan Del Grande (910.326.3316) or Jim Brewster (910.478.9727). Please see the Church and Society page for current collection needs.


We are always looking for volunteers to help with the many activities and missions in our church.

Not sure what might interest you? Here's a Serving Survey that may help. Just complete it and drop it off at the church or mail it to SUMC, 665 West Corbett Ave., Swansboro, NC 28584.
