Kumler Outreach Ministries

About Us


Kumler Outreach Ministries strives to help people struggling with poverty and homelessness in the greater Springfield, Illinois area overcome the social, economic and spiritual challenges they face. A ministry of Kumler United Methodist Church, Kumler Outreach seeks to be in relationship with the people it serves, to build lives through hope and to be the hands and feet of Christ to a hurting world.

Begun 40 years ago (1977) as a bag of groceries under the church’s kitchen sink, Kumler Outreach Ministries reaches tens of thousands of people each year with its food pantry, The Free Store (clothing and basic household items), prescription assistance program, weekly community meal—Hospitality House, and community gardens.

Kumler Outreach Ministries partners and collaborates with many organizations and faith-based groups throughout the community to help our neighbors who are struggling; to recognize emerging needs and how we can address them; and in all things to faithfully serve Christ, love our neighbors and worship our God.
