MyCalling! Ministries is a middle school mission trip created and sustained by youth and young adults of Yardley UMC. 

YUMC Youth Ministry exists to provide a safe place for young people to celebrate life, grow in their relationship with Christ, discover their God given gifts and help them to serve the  world through living out their faith.

Children are a vital part of everything we do at Yardley UMC.  They are encouraged to participate in all activities. 

In addition, children meet twice a week for fun, learning and growth.

Sundays   K-5th Grade meet at 9am 

They begin in the Worship Service and are dismissed to Sunday School after Children's Time.

The children kick off the night with a game at 5:30pm

Praying for one another is a role and blessing of a church. 

We have a team designated to pray for the needs of others. 

Do you want to join the Prayer Team?  Let's talk! 

 

Do you have a prayer request to share with the prayer team?  

We invite you to share it here or fill out a form at both entrances
of the Sanctuary.  

How can we pray for you?
Missions

Serving others is something we love to do together 

Find the mission you love and let's begin to serve! 

Purple Bags 
The last Sunday of every month, come to church to pick up your purple bag.  Take it home, place non perishable goods in the bag and bring it back the 1st Sunday of each month.  All donations are taken to the Penndel Food Pantry, which serves hundreds of families each week.  

Weavers of Wellness 

Meets the second and fourth Thursday of each month at 9:30am.  Prayer shawls are knitted and crocheted as the members enjoy fellowship.  The prayer shawls are periodically dedicated during worship and delivered to persons who are ill or grieving.

Trenton Area Soup Kitchen 

A group goes on the second Wednesday of the month to serve meals for guests in need.

Family Promise 

Four weeks during the year, Yardley UMC hosts families in transition.  We are part of a larger mission to come alongside families in Lower Bucks County as they transition into housing.  During our host week we need people to stay over at the church, prepare meals and greet families as they arrive each day.  Our next host week is November 17-27, 2019. 
2020 dates: Feb 2-9; May 3-10; Sept 13-20; Nov 8-15
To sign up, Please reach out to Janice and Kelly.
Or email Office@yardleyumc.org for a complete list of needs.  

Service Sunday

One Sunday each year YUMC cancels worship and turns our focus on service.  Projects include making blessing bags, wrapping utensils, writing cards to those in need and more!  To see pictures of our 2019 Service Sunday, go to our Photo Page
