Our Church in Action

Food Assistance Ministry

Our food assistance ministry providing bags of food for students at the Hall-dale Elementary School has resumed and we are once again providing food for students and families in need.  If you would like to support this ministry please contact us at the phone number listed above or via the e-mail address listed above.  Financial support is always welcome and checks should be made out to the church with a notation that the donation is in support of the "Hall-Dale Elementary School Food Pantry Project."

Monthly Outreach Committee Opportunities: Every month the church's Outreach Committee invites members of the congregation and others to donate towards a specific need in the community.

February 2022- Coupons for military

March- Goodies for the police department, public works employees, and Hall-Dale Schools

April- Used blankets and towels for the Kennebec Valley Humane Society

Building Use by Outside Groups

One way in which the Cox Memorial UMC is in ministry to and with the community is by providing space for various groups.  At the current time space is provided for a variety of groups including three AA groups- Women's AA meeting that takes place at noon every Friday; an open meeting on Tuesday evenings at 7:00pm and another open meeting on Saturday's at 9:00am.  Another group using the church building on a regular basis is the Mediation and Facilitation Resources of Hallowell which provides court order classes and counseling for couples during times of marital challenges.  Finally, Spectrum Services uses the church occasionally for small group meetings.
