A United Methodist Ministry

At Starting Point Outreach Center we are here for you.  We are here to listen - to get to know your needs.  Once your needs have been identified we are here to help you find service providers and resources that may be available to help with a wide range of situations and circumstances.  We are continually working to update our information and find new sources of help.

Our staff and volunteers are here to help you find a starting point for assistance and recovery.

Whether your needs are economic, social, spiritual, or health related, you need a starting point to get help finding the assistance and resources you need.

The people of the United Methodist Church care about you.  We care about both your physical and spiritual well being. 


Our relationship with Jesus is the reason we care for you.  Jesus loves you and desires to be in relationship with you.  We would like to share more about Jesus with you here at Starting Point
