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.



Truly the community of caring in action! Our new UMCPW Raised Bed Garden.  If you would like to help with planting, watering, weeding, etc., don’t hesitate to let us know. Your help is greatly appreciated and needed. All the future produce will go to the local food pantries.



We also support efforts in our broader Community including Local Food Banks. and Habitat for Humanity.
