We have many community transformation opportunities here at Methodist Temple. Methodist Temple has partnered with these organizations previously, and we are so excited to continue serving with them again. Community transformation is a great way to meet new people, to learn about other nonprofit organizations, to serve others, and in turn, to serve God. Please contact me at email@example.com or 812-476-1306 to donate or to become a volunteer with one of these organizations.
Thank you! Pastor JillAnn
