SEVERNA PARK United Methodist Church


The Missions Committee is a vital link between a needy world and our congregation.  The Committee seeks to help fulfill the spiritual, physical and emotional needs of people who do not yet follow Christ and his teachings and those who may be hungry, sick, fearful or lonely.

We believe that everyone is called and capable of serving others in Christ's name! Our mission is "go out in faith" as we follow Christ's call to be in ministry alongside the least of these among us.

There are many mission projects to serve in at Severna Park United Methodist Church. Among them are:

Service Project

The Appalachia Service Project is a non-profit home repair project with and for the poor of Central Appalachia.  It is offered through the United Methodist Church but is open to all denominations.  The goal is to give senior high youth an opportunity to put their faith into action while making a significant difference in the lives of Appalachian families.      

The volunteers who go are placed into 6-member work teams overseen by competent, faithful adults; each work team works on the home of one family for a week, thus getting to know them well and understand a different culture.  Evenings are spent in discussions with singing, group games, and usually a trip out to a local ice cream parlor.  The trip is from Saturday to Saturday, usually in late June or early July.

Volunteers In Mission

United Methodist Volunteers in Mission (UMVIM) is a missionary program within the General Board of Global Ministries of the United Methodist Church whereby Christians, both lay and clergy, may offer their skills and talents for Christian service at home and around the world on short term assignments.  The theme of the UMVIM is “Christian Love In Action”.
"Adults Loving Life" is actively supporting our military personnel who have been serving our country overseas. As our troops return to the United States through the international gates at BWI, volunteers warmly welcome them back to our homeland. They are given a goodie bag with a snack and a welcome home card, and they’re enthusiastically greeted.
