EXCEL is a community youth ministry sponsored by the McCamey Ministerial Alliance. Each month youth from the community gather for a meal and for a time of fellowship and learning.
Excel meets on the third Wednesday of each month at 6:00 p.m. in one of the McCamey Ministerial Alliance member churches.
The McCamey Convalescent Center (MCC) is an important part of our community. Each Thursday morning at 10:00 a.m. we join other volunteers to visit with the residents of the center. Coffee, donuts and the weekly McCamey newspaper are shared.
Each Sunday afternoon at 2:00 p.m. a worship service is shared with the residents. In addition to the weekly worship service, other services (Christmas Eve, memorial services, etc.) are offered.
Nomads On a Mission Active in Divine Service – NOMADS provide volunteer labor for United Methodist organizations. NOMADS demonstrate God’s love through our work and by listening to the people with whom we work. We do new construction, remodeling, and repairs for churches, children’s homes, camps, colleges, outreach missions and disaster recovery. Team members do maintenance, cleaning, organizing, painting, electrical, drywall, sewing, flooring. With God’s help, NOMADS pretty much do it all. See this link to learn more.
