Mission and Justice

The truth is, every time you did this for the least of my sisters or brothers, 

you did it to me.

Matthew 25.40

  • Imagine no malaria

    In 2008, the United Methodist Church committed itself to the work of eliminating malaria in Africa.  Malaria is a completely preventable disease.  With the help of donations for education and the purchase of insecticide treated mosquito nets, the cases and more importantly deaths caused by malaria have decreased exponentially.  Our goal over a three year period was to raise $75,000. 

    UNIVERSITYCHURCH was successful at raising over $75,000 for Imagine No More Malaria.  Thank you for your help!

  • Palos Verdes ministry

    This outreach came about to help a specific neighborhood know that they are loved and cared for by others.  We play games, share a short Bible story, music, and crafts.  It takes on average five (5) volunteers a week to make this ministry a success.  We are always in need of juice box donations.  Your donation can be brought to the church office.  If you are interested in helping contact the church office 702.733.7155 or by email.

  • hats and hands

    This ministry is to help create hand knitted or loomed scarves, gloves, and hats for the homeless of Las Vegas.  It may seem strange to worry about the cold in the middle of the desert but weather can be harsh during the winter months.   The main venue for passing out the items made at UNIVERSITYCHURCH as well as other churches in the city is Project Homeless Connect.  The first and third Saturdays from 9:00 A to 11:00 A are when folks gather here to work on their projects.  No prior experience required...even Pastor Michael can do it.
