Reaching Out to Others

Central is committed to reaching out and helping others in need in Webb City, surrounding communities, and the world.


Members of Central UMC work at Crosslines on the first Wednesday of each month from 10:00 am - 2:00 pm at the new location - 320 S. School Avenue in Joplin. Anyone who is not afraid to work hard and gain personal satisfaction by helping others is welcome.

Our congregation is very supportive in donating items monthly. Crosslines appreciates any item you feel you can donate, especially powdered milk and personal care items as these are always needed.

May items to donate:
  • Small household items (blankets, pots and pans)
  • Peanut butter
  • Slow cookers
  • Coffee pots
  • Toasters
  • Size 4 diapers

Webb City CARES

Recommended items: Toaster pastries, individual packages of pudding, popcorn, peanut butter or cheese crackers, granola bars

Now is also a great time to start donating items for the Back-to-School event in August.
Clothing: New or gently used Cardinal shirts and sweatshirts, sweats, and jeans.
Hygiene products: toothpaste, deodorant, shampoo, floss, toothbrushes, and soap

If you plan to volunteer at the schools, you will need to have a background check. Please stop by the school and fill out a volunteer background check form for the Webb City school district.

Madge T. James Kindergarten Center

Donations are accepted to purchase items for students and teachers as needed.
