Following the model of John Wesley, the founder of The Methodist Church, one of the ways we encourage spiritual growth is through action in ministry—serving God through the church. We visibly demonstrate God’s great love through our freely given service to others as we are called to be Christ for the world.

Manna House

We support the Manna House and their mission in assistance to the homeless, poor, and needy of Baltimore with services contributing toward their independence and stability.

This feeding and advocacy program provides a daily meal to an average of 165 persons. After the morning meal, a variety of services is offered during the day. Counselors, advocates and case managers talk with the clients, identify their needs and offer help. Showers are available. The staff passes out hygiene items, underwear and clothing. Clients can make business phone calls, get help with ID and receive guidance in filling out forms. Clients may also receive referrals for food, shelter, detoxification programs and/or mental health services.

UMCOR – United Methodist Committee On Relief

As the humanitarian relief and development arm of The United Methodist Church, the United Methodist Committee on Relief – UMCOR – assists United Methodists and churches to become involved globally in direct ministry to persons in need. UMCOR comes alongside those who suffer from natural or human-caused disasters – famine, hurricane, war, flood, fire or other events—to alleviate suffering and serve as a source of help and hope for the vulnerable. UMCOR provides relief, response and long-term recovery grants when events overwhelm a community’s ability to recover on their own. UMCOR also provides technical support and training for partners to address emerging and ongoing issues related to disaster relief, recovery, and long-term health and development.
