Community Ministry Partners

The local outreach partnerships of Highland Park United Methodist Church are carefully and diligently selected by a dedicated committee of 15 church members. This Community Ministries Work Area accepts and reviews grant applications submitted annually by dozens of local non-profit organizations. They take their charge to be stewards of the money with which they are entrusted very seriously. After applications are received, they conduct thorough site-visits and decisions are made after lengthy discussions at a weekend meeting in January.
