Reaching out to our Community
No church could function without loyal, skilled, volunteer service. Whatever your spiritual gifts, talents and interests, they can be used through out the church and the community. Call the church office if you are interested in helping with any of these worthwhile groups.
Ecumenical Council Food Pantry
Hours: Monday, Wednesday, Friday 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM.
The Ecumenical Council is a group of volunteers from local churches in the Sebastian area who care about those less fortunate in our area. If you are in need of food assistance, the pantry is located in the same building as the church office.
The pantry is always in need of non perishable food items or monetary donations. We have donation cans located in both greeting areas of our worship area. Donations can also be brought to the Food Pantry during operating hours.
Families who come to the Food Pantry are given a box of food which contain the following items. Any of these items are suggested for donation:
If a family has small children, diapers and baby food are available. For the homeless, the pantry provides backpacks with food items and other personal hygiene items.
Volunteers from all over the Sebastian area help make the pantry possible.
Roseland Thrift Shop
Hours: M-F 9:00AM-3:00 PM
Saturday 9:00 AM-1:00PM
Donations are welcome, including furniture, clothing, kitchen items, bedding, books, and baby equipment. You may drop off your donations during shop hours. Donation pick ups can be scheduled by calling the Thrift Shop.
Our prices are kept low because the shop is run by a dedicated volunteer team. Money received from sales help fund our programs at the church. A percentage of sales helps fund global or local missions in the area. Volunteers are always needed and work one morning or afternoon each week. You do not need to attend Roseland UMC to volunteer.
Our Hands for Angels
The outreach ministry provides layettes for stillborn babies at Indian River and Health First Hospitals. Our layettes include a gown, hat, blanket and a keepsake for the mothers. Our hospitals encourage the mothers of stillborns "to say hello before saying goodbye" and the layettes give the nurses something to dress the babies in for presentation to the mothers.
