Ward Street Mission
We serve meals at Ward Street Mission in High Point about 6 times a year. We serve close to 200 people. These meals consist of prep, delivery, serving, and cleanup. We spend time making connections with the clients of Ward Street and find it a rewarding time of relationship with our neighbors. For more information email firstname.lastname@example.org
Project AGAPE — ministry to Armenia and to some of our most desperate Christian brothers and sisters — is a collaborative effort of the North Carolina and the Western North Carolina Conferences of The United Methodist Church in a joint effort with the Armenian Apostolic Church. Here at Bethel, we connect by making feminine hygiene pads as well as Christmas shoeboxes. From time to time we will gather items to send to the folks in Armenia.

UMCOR’s MANDATE (From the Book of Discipline 2016)
¶ 1330.1. General Provisions—
Purpose—The United Methodist Committee on Relief (“UMCOR”) exists to assist United Methodists and churches to become involved globally in direct ministry to persons in need through programs of relief, rehabilitation, and service, including issues of displaced persons, hunger and poverty, disaster response, and disaster risk reduction; and to assist organizations, institutions, and programs related to annual conferences and other units of The United Methodist Church in their involvement in direct service to such persons in need.
Bethel has mission teams that go from time to time on short term mission trips. These have included but not limited to Alaska, Project 336 (A Youth Local Mission for the Northwest Area), Honduras, and local projects. Our goal is to listen for the needs as they arise and respond when God calls. We are also connected to the Northern Piedmont District of Western North Carolina United Methodist Church and her call for response.
