Ramp Ministry
The Ramp Ministry of the First United Methodist Church of Minden, through God's calling to love our neighbors, ministers to the local community by constructing wheelchair ramps for the physically disabled.  We provide safe, code adherent ramps for the temporarily or permanently disabled having trouble accessing their home. This is an effective ministry opportunity for those with skills such as basic carpentry, design or contracting. We do not attempt projects that are beyond our abilities or require meeting city/parish codes unless licensed to do so. We continually seek volunteers and donations.
