Worship, Pray, Serve, Love

Each of you should use whatever gift you have received

to serve others, as faithful stewards of

God's grace in its various forms.

[ 1 Peter 4:10 ]


Epworth's congregation is one that continuously seeks ways to serve in both our local and global community.  We are privileged to contribute to several local agencies on an ongoing basis and we welcome all who wish to use their gifts and talents to serve others.

These are a few ways Epworth reaches beyond its walls to serve:



Cooperative Christian Ministry began in 1981 when seven local churches collaborated to provide resources for folks who found themselves in crisis; financial, housing, food, clothing, etc.  Since its humble beginnings, CCM has emerged as a reputable "go to" for people in Cabarrus County.  Support for CCM is provided by churches, civic groups, organizations and individuals.  Epworth has been a long-time supporter of CCM's food pantry.  We collect food donations on a weekly basis in an effort to keep shelves stocked.  Donation baskets are located outside the office area.  Click here for a list of currently needed food items.



Epworth places individually wrapped snacks like crackers, cookies and granola bars in the waiting room of Gateway Surgery Center for folks who are waiting on loved ones undergoing surgery or medical procedures.  While this may not seem like much, this small gesture of kindness has provides a little comfort to those who are waiting.

Epworth's youth ministry, the DUH!SCIPLES, is on fire and incredibly mission-minded all year long.  The second Saturday of the month they head out into the community for S.O.S (Serving on Saturday).  SOS finds ways to meet the needs of our neighbors through home repairs, odd jobs and getting to know the people who live around us.  SOS meets monthly from September through May. 

For a week during the summer Epworth hosts the Backyard Mission Camp.  Youth and their adult mentors pitch tents in the back field at Epworth and spend a week serving and learning about what's in our own back yards.  Campers tackle bigger home repair projects like ramps and porches, perform random acts of kindness and explore our community through public transportation and being attune to the people around us.  Backyard Mission Camp is all about glorifying God by doing good stuff right here at home.
