TSUMC’s MISSION POLICY

 

Thompson’s Station United Methodist Church works through local organizations to help those who come to us with needs.  We have no resources allotted to give money nor do we have a credit card to give money.  Therefore, when someone calls the church or comes to the church asking for money or help, please note that we will use the following referrals:

 

The Well Outreach

Spring Hill, TN  37174

The Well Outreach is a food pantry that provides emergency food assistance to families in need.  Their hours are as follows:

  • Monday through Thursday:  8:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.

  • Friday through Sunday: Closed

 

Individuals are asked to bring a form of identification (driver’s license, state issued identification, passport, or green card) and a current utility bill to confirm address.  Residents of Spring Hill, Thompson’s Station, and College Grove may visit The Well Outreach Food pantry twice per month during the above open hours. A mobile Food Pantry is held several times during the year at Spring Hill High School.
