JUMC runs on volunteers

Week after week, dozens of volunteers help out here at JUMC and out in the community, giving and serving the community that they love in the name of Christ. Without these dedicated people, we would not be able to offer programs such as Christian Friends Forever, Sunday School, VBS, and our Living Nativity.
