Micah 6:8

“And what does the Lord require of you?  To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.” 

Concord United in Missions


Concord United Methodist Church has long been a mission minded church. We work to involve all ages from the youngest to the oldest in serving our neighbors locally, nationally and internationally.  We try to plant the seeds for children, youth and adults to have a heart for serving others. 


We are called to be Christ’s hands, feet and heart here in our community, walking with our neighbors who need a helping hand. Please consider joining us for a future opportunity to serve others. Below are some upcoming opportunities.

Food Pantry

If you or someone you know needs food from the pantry, invite them to come to the drive through pantry at Faith Lutheran Church (225 Jamestown Blvd) and bring a photo ID. The pantry is open on the 1st and 3rd Mondays. All are welcome!  
 
We will continue to have the silver racks outside the Worship Center under the porte cochere (covered drive) so you can leave food donations at your convenience. Thanks for helping us help those in need!

Community Garden

 

Most of the food grown in the gardens located to the west of the church parking lots,  goes to food pantries and feeding ministries.  You can also “adopt” a portion and contribute 10% and keep the rest. 

 

“Garden Parties” are held each Monday and Saturday mornings, 9-noon, and Thursday evenings, 4:30 til dusk, when anyone can show up to help work the garden. If you have questions, email Mike Smith.
