Having been planted and grown in Christ and with one another, it is time to share both our faith and the fruits of our faith! We share the abundance of love that we have experienced because we now know God.
Service has been at the heart of who we are since our beginning. We are a small congregation with a big commitment to serving our community.
Our Outreach Committee meets monthly to plan for the wide variety of community services we support with our time, talents and our finances.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org to find out how you can support us.
Our greatest challenge at the moment is feeding people.
Help us provide food to those who are hungry in body, by dropping off items from Rising Hope or making a monetary donation for a meal to be served at the Monlach House.
COVID has changed our fundraisers but we are hoping to see our yardsale's return soon.
The first weekend in May, the proceeds of this yard sale support the United Methodist Women’s Scholarship Fund.
The first weekend in October, the proceeds of this yard sale support the ministries of the church.
The weekend after Thanksgiving until they are gone, we distribute Christmas trees for a donation. These donations help support the ministries and missions of the church throughout the entire year. The lot is “manned” seven days a week from afternoon until evening, with individuals who will carry, trim and help place the tree on vehicles. This is a service we have provided since the 1970’s and we look forward to it each year!
United Methodist Women
The UMW circles are active in supporting and encouraging one another, especially during COVID. Their secret sister program has lifted one another up and encouraged one another. The yearly the Wanda Andreasen Prayer Tea (which will take place via zoom this year), and many other activities.
The UMW give money to international programs supported by the national UMW and to local projects close to their hearts. They also provide a scholarship to each graduating high school senior and those in college who needs them.
To allow someone to take care of us and to take care of one another is one of the greatest gifts of the church. We have a deep call to be family in the truest sense of the word and to us that means taking care of one another.
We do this in many ways. Some of our formal ministries, of which you can find growth within, are part of our Connectional Care Ministries.
As United Methodists, part of our giving is through local church apportionments.
These are our portion of the global and Virginia budget which support the missions and ministries of the state, national and global church. Apportionments support our bishops and their staff, district superintendents, the training of new clergy at home and around the world and many other missions that make disciples of Jesus Christ around the world.
