Boone United Methodist serves people in need in Watauga County through various ongoing local missions programs. For more information visit, Boone Area Missions, the local missions initiatives of Boone United Methodist Church.
Threads of Faith Ministry
Providing prayer shawls and lap robes to those who are ill, Linus blankets and baby hats for newborns at Watauga Medical Center, and caps for cancer patients. Baby blankets are also created for newborns in our church family.
The Firewood Ministry
Church members provide firewood free of charge to over twenty families and individuals in Watauga County. Wood is available for pick-up or delivery.
This ministry is clearing a three mile hiking trail for the community behind the church. Come join this group every Tuesday from 4:30pm until dark as they complete the last half mile of this trail and maintain the existing trail.
Fresh Produce/Food Assistance
Church members of all ages tend to the produce garden at the church to provide fresh organic vegetables to area food pantries and people in need. In addition, church members glean from the Saturday Watauga County Farmers Market and bring the produce to area food pantries.
Skilled Home Repair
Church members with experience in the construction field offer their time and skills to people in need in Watauga County through home repairs.
Church members visit various elderly community members that are shut-ins, often sharing meals.
Habitat for Humanity
Members from our church volunteer to work with Habitat for Humanity in Boone on constructing new homes for those in need. We plan work days on the third Saturday of most months. Due to weather concerns, we will start 2017’s work days in March. If you would be interested in serving with Habitat for Humanity, please contact Laura Beach or click here to sign up for a scheduled work day.
