SHINING THE LIGHT OF GOD IN OUR COMMUNITY!!
The following are just a few examples of the opportunities for service at North Canton Community UMC. All members and visitors are invited to join in any of these ministries, or help us to see other areas where we might serve our community, letting God's light shine in the darkness!
United Methodist Lay Servants
NCCUMC's lay servants join with other area UMC lay servants to provide preaching and worship leadership to churches without a full-time pastor, or in those times when a pastor is on vacation or out of town.
NCCUMC has a visitation team that that visits and keeps in contact with members and church friends who are unable to regularly attend worship services.
St. Elizabeth's House
NCCUMC members serve in rotation at this shelter and food kitchen for the homeless in Hartford.
United Methodist Women and United Methodist Men
NCCUMC service groups who are involved in mission work at both the local church and global levels, including financial and prayerful support of a medical doctor at a clinic in Haiti.
Focus on Canton
NCCUMC members join other community leaders and groups in service projects of the local community, including the seasonal town clean up Work Days, Walk for Hunger, and the annual community Thanksgiving Dinner.
Canton Food Bank
NCCUMC is a large contributor to the Canton Food Bank; our members donate approximately 150 bags of non-perishable food per year.
Prayer Shawl Ministry
The Prayer Shawl Ministry began in 2006. As of May 2013, our knitters have completed 224 shawls and distributed to St. Francis Hospital, McLean Hospice and Church family and friends who are in need of comfort.
