Weekend Food Bags

Our church family, in partnership with Jupiter First Church, provide Weekend Food Bags to over 230 children at Jupiter Elementary, Jerry Thomas Elementary, Limestone Elementary, and Jupiter Farms Elementary. Food is stored and packed on church property and then transported weekly to the local schools for distribution during the school year. It is an honor to serve our youngest community members and assist with eliminating food insecurity. This ministry is funded by the generous donations of our church family, the Jupiter First Church family, and Jupiter community members. 


C.R.O.S. (Christian’s Reaching Out to Society) is our United Methodist Church Urban Ministry in Palm Beach County.  C.R.O.S. provides food, summer camp for children, social services, mentoring, gleaning, and coordinates hurricane recovery for areas along the east coast. For more information on C.R.O.S. ministries, please click on the link to their website. www.crosministries.org



First UMC Jupiter serves as one of C.R.O.S.’s seven community food pantries providing food to low income persons in need of help. Food is collected and supported in our church food pantry and delivered to El Sol for distribution as needed.



Getting our hands and feet in the mission field. Through the years we have had teams of people in the fields gleaning. C.R.O.S. Gleaning is a produce recovery operation in which C.R.O.S. volunteers pick fresh fruits and vegetables from farmers' fields, cull lines, and donors’ backyards. This food would otherwise go to waste. Gleaning occurs from November to July.


A group of women who gather weekly on Monday mornings that share the same passion for sewing, knitting and quilting to help those in need. The items they make are distributed to children in need (handmade clothes), babies in the neonatal unit (booties, blankets, and hats) and veterans (quilted blankets).


Although our regular Sunday morning worship is on hold, we will be looking for new ways to worship as the Body of Christ. Please check the UPDATES for the most recent announcements.


Our church office is closed in order to keep everyone safe. We will be checking the voice messages and mail daily.
