Outreach & Serving

The motto of Guilford College United Methodist Church is “Living Beyond Ourselves.” One of the most important ways we live beyond ourselves is through serving other people. Our congregation loves to serve our neighbors – whether they are in our zip code, across town or around the world. We do this because Jesus said that when we extend compassion toward people in need, it’s as good as if we had done it for him (Matthew 25:37-40).


But even if you are motivated to serve for other reasons, all people of goodwill are welcome to join GCUMC in feeding the hungry, repairing homes or even serving on an adult mission team. You do not need to be a member of this congregation or a member of anything, frankly, in order to serve with us. Please find more information about many of our opportunities to serve by clicking on the topic below.


If you have any questions, reach out to Matt Smith, our Associate Pastor, at msmith@guilfordcollegeumc.org or 336 292-5833 or CLICK HERE and fill out the Information Request Form.
