MOME clothing exchange - This is an event for the whole family: Moms on a Mission Exchange (pronounced "mommy"). Bring a bag of clothes, take a bag or more. We offer men's, women's, teens, maternity and children's clothing, for free. Open to the public. Offered on the second Saturday of the month, 1 to 3 p.m. (new times effective in 2017-18).

Nursing homes - A video recording of Sunday worship is given each week to area nursing homes so residents may share in the experience of worshiping God.

Student transportation - Milton UMC will be involved in helping provide school transportation for homeless students in the School District of Milton.

The Open Table - a free, monthly community meal on the last Saturday of the month. Volunteers are needed for greeters, set-up, food purchasing, cooks, servers and clean-up. This important new outreach ministry is intended to involve all members and friends of Milton UMC at some point throughout the year.
