Our Congregation’s Stephen Ministry equips lay-people to provide one-on-one Christian care to people in our congregation and community who are experiencing difficulties in their lives. This is a confidential ministry. The identity of those receiving care and everything they discuss with a Stephen Minister will remain private.
If you or someone you know is in need of this ministry, please contact Preacher Won Namkoong at the church office, (910) 897-8894.
The ECHO food giveaway is held on the third Monday of each month from 4-6pm at the old Mill parking lot. Our church, along with several others, provides volunteers to participate in this event to help feed the hungry in our community. Currently, there are around 60 boxes of food being distributed at the event.
Outreach Ministry at Betsy Johnson HospitalDebbie Dean and Donna West, both members of Erwin UMC, regularly visit patients from floor to floor at our local hospital to offer encouragement, prayer, a church bulletin, and an item from the Comfort Cart such as prayer shawls, Bibles, and books for adults…and baby blankets, coloring books, and crayons for children. All items for the Comfort Cart come from generous donations from churches, hospital staff, former patients, visitors, and family members. Therefore, we need your ongoing help to continue this outreach ministry as we seek to be the hands, feet, and words of Jesus to those recovering from illnesses and injuries. We give thanks that Donna and Debbie have been called to this important ministry of care for the BJH patients. Please contact the church office at (910) 897-8894 or through our Contact Us form if you would like more information regarding donating items to the comfort cart.
