Neighbors Helping Neighbors, a construction ministry, has been repairing homes in the community since 2009. The ministry, a community effort organized largely by Kenbridge United Methodist Church, raised money year-round for its signature project -- a weekend during which dozens of volunteers painted homes, built handicap-accessible ramps, cleaned yards, and repaired floors and siding for low-income residents.
We are a community of women whose purpose is to know God and to experience freedom as whole persons through Jesus Christ. We are especially dedicated to expanding the concepts of mission in the global ministries of the church. We raise money, organize events, go on visits, have luncheons, and many other worthwhile activities.
We make a difference in the life of our church, our community, and our planet.
The UMW meet on the 2nd Tuesday of most months at 7:30 pm at a member’s home.
For years now, men from all around the community have come to eat breakfast together on the first Wednesday of each month at 7:00am in the fellowship hall. We have eggs, bacon, sausage, ham, biscuits, gravy, an assortment of jams, juice and coffee. We have fellowship, a devotion, and inform each other on the happenings in our community. We raise money through these times together to help those in need.
Every year, beginning in October, we package and collect shoe boxes, for Operation Christmas Child. These boxes are sent all around the world to show the love of Christ to those in need. We have so much, and through Operation Christmas Child, we have an opportunity to give to those who may have nothing.
Each year, on the Tuesday of Thanksgiving Week, we have a dinner to honor our community. All members of the community are invited to participate in preparing meals, and sharing in food and fellowship with one another. This dinner is free, and all you need to bring is yourself. We invite you to come and share in a wonderful time of reflection on faith, family, and friends.
Beginning in 2008, we began the campaign called “It’s not your birthday”, which originated at Ginghamsburg UMC in Ohio. During this food drive, we emphasized the importance of giving to others as God gave to us in Christ Jesus. So we gave gifts of food to be distributed to those hungry and hurting in our community. We continue to provide food to those who hunger, and are so thankful for all the support that has come from other churches who now support the pantry.
