John Wesley, the Anglican minister who was an early leader of the Methodist movement said: “Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as ever you can.” This challenging approach to service is an important part of our faith. We believe that the best way to adopt a Christian attitude is to serve. As listed below, there are many ways to serve the church and those outside the church. We hope at least one of these opportunities excites your interest in using your gifts and your abilities to serve others.
If you are interested in any of these service opportunities, please download our Normandy Service Opportunity Survey or complete the survey as it is listed at the bottom of this page. If you have questions about the service opportunities on this page or would simply like to send a note indicating your interest, please send a note to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Serve the Community and the World
Some of the most exciting and rewarding service opportunities target specific needs in our community and other parts of the world. Besides being generous with our financial support, Normandy prides itself in getting personally involved in helping people whether they are in the Dayton area or on another continent. Our mission is to answer the call for help! For a complete list of service opportunities, go to Serve the Community and the World.
Some Normandy members spent a mission week at Midwest Mission Distribution Center. We packaged personal dignity kits and cleaning buckets. We also built school desks for children, repaired sewing machines, and refurbished bicycles. MMDC is a part of the UMCOR network. People all over the world will benefit.
