Our church values our neighbors and our community.  By reaching out and being active in sharing God’s love, we believe we are also part of the good work that God is doing in the world.

Community Garden

We are looking for folks willing to volunteer time to assist with our Community Garden!  The produce from this garden is donated to local food shelters and helps to care for those in need of food in our local areas.

If you are interested in helping out, you can connect with our Facebook Group to learn how to help!

Community Partners

When you give to First UMC, you are also helping to support the following organizations:

, a collected effort from churches in Winchester and Frederick County, VA to care for at-risk and underprivileged members of our community.

Teens Opposing Poverty (TOP), an organization that empowers youth to meet physical needs and offer hope, friendship, opportunity and encouragement to the poor, not just as an annual event, but as a regular part of their lives.

Winchester Area Temporary Thermal Shelter (WATTS) provides shelter for our unhoused neighbors in the community during the winter months.
