We encourage you and your family to serve outside the wall of Keller UMC with one of our partner organizations or a service project of your creation during the month of March. We love to see Keller UMC serving, so please send your pictures of you and your family serving within the community to cathyd@kellerumc.org or post to your Social Media (Facebook, Instagram or Twitter).  Don’t forget to tag with #KellerUMCserves and #MarchMegaMission1025.

Here is a list of partner organizations and serving opportunities:
