An open, dynamic and multicultural community of faith


Our Mission Statement:

We are Christians engaged in ministry to our community, the nation, and the world.

Upcoming and Ongoing Mission Opportunities:

To help better serve food-starved individuals in our community, we will be collecting specific, non-perishable food items monthly for the Assistance Center of Towson Churches (ACTC) as well as supporting Manna House, Essex UMC and Abbottston Elementary School.
Abbottston Elementary School

We are always collecting much-needed items for the school year
: Kleenex, hand sanitizer, hand soap, Lysol wipes, Lysol spray, and (new) boy’s and girl’s underwear (sizes 6-10). If you are interested in volunteering at Abbottston, Cathy Miles will be having training for reading or math help, and breakfast or lunch help. Contact the church office for Cathy's contact information.

Please know that we will continue to collect Kleenex, hand soap and hand sanitizer throughout the year. The school is currently in need of Kleenex and Clorox wipes.

ACTC Collection for May 2019
Donations of baked beans are needed for ACTC in May. Please place items in collection boxes outside of Fellowship Hall.  
Thank you for your support!  They are also in need of plastic grocery bags. Bags may be dropped off at 120 W. Pennsylvania Avenue, Towson; Monday-Friday from 10:00-3:00.

Manna House Breakfast Club:

Volunteers will meet in the church parking lot to carpool.
(If you would like to volunteer to help prepare or serve breakfast, contact Linda Cole or phone the church office.) The next volunteer day @ Manna House will be held on May 18th. The remaining 2019 dates are July 13th and October 12th.

Essex UMC

Collection of hotel-size toiletries are needed for Essex UMC.  There is a box for the items on the hospitality desk. This is an on-going collection.

The Board of Childcare

We are regularly asked to donate cookies for the girls and boys who live on the Board of Child Care campus. A box will be placed in Fellowship Hall if you would like to help. Store bought cookies are preferred. Some of the children have food allergies and the staff can check the ingredients in store bought cookies. Watch the bulletin for donation months. Cash to purchase cookies will also be accepted.
