Community Service

The UMCPW Building and grounds provide a spiritual home for its members, and  an important resource for our community. Several Groups and Services make the UMCPW campus their home.


The UMCPW-sponsored Child’s World Nursery School has operated within our facility for the past twenty years. Child’s World offers an excellent pre-K education for members and community residents.


The Boy Scouts, have been with us for a long time. Our Troup was chartered  over 100 years ago, when the UMCPW (then The First Methodist Church of Port Washington)  occupied the current  the Port Washington Library site. Troop Seven  Boy Scouts, and Pack 77 Cub Scouts, who continue to make their home here at UMCPW.


Other groups include AA, Kids Soccer and among the services offered are group therapy classes for children, Acting classes and SAT Prep. We also host groups like the Long Island Power Squadron.



Our church has a raised bed garden with 23 4’x8′ bed with all the produce donated to Our Lady of Fatima’s Food Pantry in Manorhaven.  In addition to this, UMCPW also supplies 45 dozen eggs and 45 half gallons of whole milk each week to OLF’s food pantry.



Laundry Love is a UMCPW led effort with the support of the Clergy Association of Port Washington where once a month we gather and pay for up to three loads of laundry at a local laundromat.  During pandemic times, gift cards are given out monthly instead.
