Christ UMC’s Mission Ministries

“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me
something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed
me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.”

Weaverville Senior Meal Site – The second week of each month, volunteers from CUMC
transport lunch from The Fireplace Restaurant to First Baptist Church in Weaverville for the
Senior Meal Site which meets Monday through Friday, 9 AM to 12 PM. Supported by funding
and volunteers from Weaverville churches and businesses, Council on Aging, and DSS, this
program provides fellowship, activities, education, and a meal daily on weekdays all year for
seniors in our community.

ABCCM/NBSM – Christ UMC supports North Buncombe Samaritan Ministry, an arm of
Asheville Buncombe Community Christian Ministry, with ongoing funding each year ($180/mo).
ABCCM provides shelter, counseling, medical supplies and medical care, food, clothing, money
for utility bills, medications and heating costs for those in need in Buncombe County. Carol
Young and Pat Farris deliver food every week to NBSM.

Adult/Youth Mission Trips – Mission trips planned as needed

Missionary Support – A Christmas Eve Service love offering has been sent to the Faust family
for the past few years. The Fausts are with Wycliffe Bible Translators, called to missionary
service in scriptural translation. Until the spring of 2009, Andy, Mary Ellen, Caleb and Abigail
Faust were living and working in Central Asia. They are currently on home assignment in
Vancouver, Canada.
Emmaus Community: Christ UMC takes an active part in the Blue Ridge Emmaus Community
by sponsoring others and service. Everyone is encouraged to take part.

Alpha Outreach: Through Alpha Courses (Alpha Basic Course and Alpha Marriage Course)
offered to the community, everyone is given an opportunity to come to know Jesus as their Lord
and Savior and live in relationship with God and one another.
