Ministries

We want you to feel connected at Savoy UMC! That happens as you get to know the  people and the staff at the church but, beyond that, it happens as you find your place to serve the Lord and make a difference in the lives of others. We have many ministries in the church that exist to serve those who attend our church, but they also provide ways in which you can be a part of serving others. Please contact the church at 217-352-3993 if you would like additional information about any of these ministries. These important ministries include:
