Serving Our Community

We strive to live out the gospel through giving and serving in Christ's name. We partner with several helping agencies to serve our neighbors near and far, helping with food and household goods, shelter, education, encouragement, and  spiritual support.  Our church motto is "Hearts, Heads, and Hands for Christ", and we always welcome new volunteers!

REACH Cold Weather Shelter
We support the seasonal homeless shelter through financial gifts. 


Samaritan’s Purse

We support the “shoebox” project to provide needy children throughout the world with Christmas gifts.  We collect and delivery the donated boxes filled with goodies to the designated county site for distribution.

Salvation Army Bell Ringers

We volunteer to man the Salvation Army kettles on two days during their annual fundraiser at the Valley Mall.

Angel Tree Project

We coordinate with the south county area elementary, middle and high schools guidance counselors to provide Christmas gifts to children of low-income families. Each child may request a needed and a wished-for gift that is identified on an Angel Tree mitten.  Only the age & sex are known by the church member who “adopts” the mitten to purchase the requested items. The gifts are delivered to the respective schools for the families to pick up.

Mission Trips

We offer opportunities to church members to participant in United Methodist Volunteers in Mission trips and community church-sponsored mission trips. We hold fundraisers from time to time and allocate the funds to support those who would like to volunteer their time and talents to mission work in the US and overseas.  Specific guidelines/policies dictate how these monies can be used.

Local Partners

The Hagerstown Areal Religious Council is a coalition of faith communities building relationships and sharing resources to improve our community.

Moving people from crisis to thriving through mentoring, spiritual support, life-skills training, and crisis relief.
