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.” 

Check out this overview video of the 2023 Mission BLITZ.

Over the MLK weekend our nearly 700 participants served in 24 projects at the church and around the area.

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.

Shepherd of Hope

Food Pantry 

We participate in a five church partnership to support the Shepherd of Hope Food Pantry, housed at Faith Lutheran Church, 225 Jamestowne Blvd.  Concord United along with Faith Lutheran, Farragut Presbyterian, Grassy Valley Baptist and 1st Baptist Concord provide the food, funding, volunteers and other support as needed. A list of pantry needs is shared each month and donations of food can be left on the silver racks under the covered drive or in the hallways.  Volunteers are needed to serve our guests at the pantry.  On the job training is provided.  

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!  


Thanks for helping us help those in need!  


Email Jane Currin, for more info.

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.

Sager Brown

Founded in 1940, the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) is the global humanitarian relief and development agency of The United Methodist Church. A part of Global Ministries, UMCOR works in more than 80 countries worldwide, including the United States and its territories. The agency’s mission, grounded in the teachings of Jesus, is to alleviate human suffering with open hearts and minds to all people. Working in the areas of disaster response and recovery and migration, UMCOR responds to natural or civil disasters that are interruptions of such magnitude that they overwhelm a community’s ability to recover on its own.


UMCOR Sager Brown Depot houses relief supplies for shipment in response to disasters in the United States. We work there for a week, usually in February, to help prepare these supplies and make sure they are ready when needed. We have also worked on community projects in nearby Baldwin . We have fun staying in the dorms, eating at the cafeteria and enjoying each others fellowship.

Harvest Camp

Harvest Camp is a church wide event of fellowship, apple butter making, climbing wall, zip line, horseshoes, worship and wonderful meals. It is a mixture of work and play for all ages. Participants will have the opportunity to assist in all steps of the apple butter making process from washing apples to the final canning. In the evenings, we will enjoy fellowship, games and worship. The event is usually in November at Camp Dickenson in Fries, Virginia. The sale of the apple butter and applesauce is a major fundraiser to support mission projects.


We learned there are businesses that were throwing away food left over at the end of the day. That‘s when we started our gleaning program. We have volunteers who collect that food and take it to area food pantries or agencies to be prepared or distributed to those in need.  Currently, we are collecting at Panera Bread, Einstein Bros. Bagels, Edible Arrangements, Farmer’s Markets, and farmer’s fields (in season).  For more information, contact Mike Smith at michael09071948@gmail.com.
