Outreach with Burke UMC

Loving our Neighbors!

We embrace Jesus' commands to love God and neighbor through our practices of risk-taking mission & service and extravagant generosity. We offer our time, gifts, skills, and resources to make this world a better place for all of God's people.

BUMC is committed to making a difference in the world by providing immediate relief to those who are affected by hunger and homelessness, and by addressing underlying causes through mentoring and social justice advocacy and support.

We also reach into the world as the hands, feet, and voice of Jesus Christ in our community, nation, and world.
There are many ways for you to get involved!

Causes Gleaning For The World sends plush toys to on our shipments & throughout our community:

  • Natural disasters – (tornadoes, hurricanes, floods, wildfires, volcano eruptions, winter storms) shelters, churches, other disaster partners, community groups that distribute to the public

  • Human-made disasters (war, conflict, refugee camps)

  • Children living in poverty 

  • Children living in extremely poor communities

  • Children living in orphanages

  • A US children’s hospital (in FL)

  • Immigrant children adjusting to life in a new country (children coming across our southern border + Afghan children in Ft Pickett)

  • Children attending Vacation Bible School (overseas)

From children fleeing their homes in war-ravaged lands to children experiencing the devastating effects of natural disasters — like tornadoes – hurricanes – floods — the simple gesture of offering a plush toy to a child brightens their eyes with hope.
