Winfield UMC is "Home". All of us realize how lucky we are to have each other and a church home where we belong. However, we also realize that there is homelessness, unrest, hunger and heartache in Little Rock. Jesus, at the last supper, washed the feet of his disciples saying, "So if I, the Master and Teacher, washed your feet, you must now wash each other's feet," emphasizing service and love for one another.
Outreach to the Homeless
Winfield UMC partners once every other month with the Quapaw Quarter United Methodist Church for Stone Soup which provides a healthy, balanced meal to approximately 120 of the area's poor and homeless each Sunday afternoon at 3:00 pm. Check the Calendar for Winfield's upcoming dates to cook and serve at Stone Soup.
Canvass Community, a mission-based United Methodist Church, serves dinner every Wednesday night to the homeless. Winfield UMC partners with them several times a year to support this effort.
Winfield UMC unites with other United Methodists from around the state every year to gather food and supplies for those in need at the Arkansas Food Bank. This "Ingathering" has been held for 41 years.
Outreach to Those in Need
The Winfield UMC Sewing Group meets every Wednesday and makes quilts and blankets for those needing warmth. This year they delivered 39 blankets to the VA Hematology Department for distribution to their patients. They also made and donated 23 blankets to the Little Rock Compassion Center.
The Roland Crisis Closet exists to help the poor have the food they need. Some of our members work on Thursday's and every other Saturday to provide food and services donated by area churches, individuals and businesses to residents of a dedicated service area.
Community Outreach and Service - All are Invited!
At Winfield, we are involved in the community around us. From making our facilities available for home school groups, Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts meetings and youth basketball team practices, to hosting programs that invite community participation such as a monthly family movie night, Community Easter Egg Hunt, Fall Festival and a drive-thru Living Nativity, Winfield members have lots of opportunities to participate in and serve our community.
Every 2nd Friday of the month, Winfield UMC sponsors a Free Movie Night that includes free popcorn, drinks, and childcare! Join us for the movie or go out for dinner. Childcare available from 6:30 pm to 9:00 pm.
Due to a scheduling conflict, February's Movie Night has been rescheduled for the 3rd Friday night in the month - Feb. 21.

Easter Egg Hunt
Easter is a time for egg hunts and the people of Winfield UMC host a great community egg hunt complete with a visit from the Easter bunny!
Community Easter Sunday Sunrise Service
Pinnacle State Park serves as an example of the beauty of the earth, God's gift to us. It also serves as the site of Winfield UMC's Community Easter Sunrise Service. As the sun comes up, we are reminded of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. With that joyful realization comes anticipation of the free pancake breakfast that awaits in the church Fellowship Hall.
Community Fall Festival
With the changing seasons comes Halloween and Winfield UMC's Fall Festival. The Community is invited to enjoy a Fall Festival of games, food, and fun on Halloween night!
Christmas Living Nativity
The birth of Jesus Christ is a time of celebration! One of the ways Winfield UMC reaches out to the community to share that joy is through our drive-through Living Nativity followed by hot chocolate in the Fellowship Hall.
