There is much work to do in the world, and you can help impact lives and communities. We partner with several international organizations to bring hope to the world.

The United Methodist Committee on Relief is one of the top disaster relief agencies in the world.

The Poland trip has been a part of O'Fallon UMC since 2005 when it began as a Language Camp. It has since grown into a Bible Camp, serving 60+ children, teens and their families. The theme Indian Village was then chosen for the camp because of the history, respect and connection that the people of Poland have with the Indigenous people of Canada. It is a trip about cultural exchange and building relationships of faith with Christians from another country. 100% of the money raised for this trip goes to fund the camp that is organized through the Methodist church of Kielce, Poland.
