Feeding the Hungry
Caring for the needy and feeding the hungry has become central to our existence as a people of Christ. We have hosted 7 Rise Against Hunger Food Packing Event. We anticipate hosting our next mission here at Round Hill UMC the Saturday after Easter. We package meals to be distributed by RAH around the world. Our total meals packaged is nearly 500,000 in the past six years. We thank the hundreds of volunteers and invite you to join us in changing this world into the Kingdom of God.
We have a garden and grow food to add to our feeding program of the needy in our area.
We also have chickens from which we gather eggs and add them to food baskets distributed monthly.
RHUMC has a food pantry that offers assistance to families in need throughout the year. We distribute food to these families on a monthly basis and when fresh produce is available from the garden.
In the past a group of RHUMC members prepared dinner at a Leesburg site for people in need. Daily Bread, sponsored by Interfaith Council, served an average of 60-65 people who are fed at each meal. This is mentioned as a way of saying our mission and ministry specific change and we are always looking for new ideas.

Sunday Fiestas and Last Sunday Dinners
During the Summer months the family of Round Hill United Methodist Church gathers in different congregants back yard each Sunday for a Fiesta. Each brings a covered-dish, meat to grill, lawn chairs and a smile. These have proven to be great times for children to play and adults to get to know each other.
During the Fall, Winter and Spring months we gather the Last Sunday of each month for Dinner, conversation and games. Again each participant is asked to bring a covered dish and a warm disposition. The youth go to the Education Annex for a time for games after dinner.
