First United Methodist Church of Maquoketa is a church focused
on filling the mission and ministry of God. We are God's hands in the community and surrounding area.
Our church continues to support the WIC Clinic that meets at our church 2 days a month. We give out diapers, wipes, clothes and books to families who come in for their WIC appointments. Another important component of our ministry is to visit with the parents and read to or play with the children.
The purpose of this ministry is to continue to
"be the hands and feet of Jesus" and help provide for some of the needs of the youngest members of God's family.
During worship, the children and youth collect quarters for a mission project.
