There are lots of ways to get involved and connected at Polk City UMC! We welcome you to join us in any of the efforts or groups listed below!
NP Comet Cupboard Food Pantry
The outdoor pantry sits at the entry drive to the Polk City United Methodist Church and is available 24/7 for anyone in need. The outdoor Comet Cupboard is filled twice daily by volunteers.
The indoor food pantry offers walk-in “shopping” options. This indoor pantry is open the first and third Wednesdays of each month from 5:00 to 6:30 pm. There are no eligibility requirements for people who utilize the North Polk Comet Cupboard Food Pantry.
You can donate to the Comet Cupboard by bringing goods to the Cupboard itself or place them in the plastic crate by the front door of the church. Financial donations are welcome. Make the check out to Polk City United Methodist with Comet Cupboard noted on it.
Free Clinics of Iowa
Our clinic is open the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of each month from 6-8 pm. We see patients for illness, for school, sports, pre and current employment physicals, and utilize our legislative funding to provide medications, some immunizations, flu vaccines, equipment and supplies.
Patients enter the second door on the east side of the Church, marked Clinic Entrance.

An adult Bible study meets studying books like Not A Fan, Seven Words, Light of the World, and others.

Booked! Bible Study
Resumes Sept 12, 2023. Every Tuesday from 4:30 to 5:30pm Cindy Hickman (recently retired UMC pastor) leads a study of the Bible at the church. We select a book of the Bible and read it as a group, ask questions, and discuss.
This is an informal gathering and open to all who would like to explore the bible with others.
Bring your Bible if you have one. If you don’t we’ll make one available to you.
