Where Can I Serve?

Jesus told us, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values of Sudley Church is our mission to the world. It begins in our own community, and spreads overseas to every nation. The links below give an overview of Sudley Missions.

Sudley Opportunities

  • Contact the church office if you are interested in being a part of these opportunities. Or if you have ideas for a new area of ministry, let us know!
  • Operation Christmas Child –  Build a Shoe box online or bring one into church by November 19.  Packing a simple box with small items can change a whole life and bring a smile to a child in need.
  • Helping Hands – We are always looking for caring individuals to provide childcare, meals, transportation to doctor appointments and miscellaneous needs for families who have an ill family member or have recently lost a loved one. Contact the Church office if you wish to volunteer.
  • Sonshine Committee  – Do you feel God calling you to reach out to those in their time of grief and pain? Join our Sonshine Committee to help prepare meals for funerals held at Sudley Church.
  • Donations for SERVE – Collection of food items for our local SERVE shelter are always welcome.  Drop-off box is located in the Fellowship Hall.

Local Missions


Non perishable food items and monetary donations are always appreciated. The drop-off box for   food donations is located outside of the church Office. Our youth go to SERVE monthly to help stock the shelves at the food closet.  Also, volunteers are needed to help cook and/or SERVE breakfast to the residents on the second Saturday of each month.


Charlie’s Place

A donation basket for men’s coats and clothing can be found in the Fellowship Hall.   Volunteers to pick up bread from local stores for the homeless shelter.  People who are willing to travel to Washington DC to deliver the bread or help serve meals are much needed.


Birmingham Green

Donations of travel size toiletries are needed. Easter baskets & lap blankets are given to the residents.


Love Fund

Gift cards are available for needy families. Monetary donations are appreciated.

National & International Missions

Empowering Haitians

Your monetary donations are always needed and support projects such as clean water and providing micro loans to Haitian women. Teams go to Haiti in January and July of each year and volunteers are always welcome.

Caring and Sharing Ministry

Donations of money, clothing and household items are sent to needy families in Southwest Virginia.

Fair Trade Coffee Program

Sudley offers Fair Trade coffee for sale in our Fellowship Hall. Fair Trade ensures that the families who farm the coffee beans are given fair wages and access to education and medical facilities. Volunteer to help with ordering and stocking the shelves.

REACH (Real Experiences Affecting Change)

Our youth went to Roanoke, VA on July 13-19, 2013 and was amazing at volunteering and had such a passion for being Christ’s hands & feet (skilled and unskilled) and donated supplies.

Ronald McDonald House

The United Methodist Women collect aluminum pull tabs from the tops of cans to give to the Ronald McDonald House.   Why pull tabs? It’s so simple and there is more concentrated aluminum in Pull Tabs than in the entire can. So we can get more money for something a lot smaller!
100% of the money earned from the collection is used to offset the cost for families staying at the Ronald McDonald House. A little pull tab you used to throw away is very valuable to those families. The collection bin is under the UMW bulletin board in the Fellowship Hall.
