Serve Ministry

SERVE is the missions outreach ministry of Blacksburg United Methodist Church. We provide guidance, promotion, and assistance to programs that—through words and deeds—continually show the love of Jesus at home, in our community and in the world. 

" will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all judea and samaria, and to the ends of the earth."

At home in blacksburg is our jerusalem

Several SERVE ministries are offered right here at Blacksburg UMC each week - including Alcoholics Anonymous, the Prayer Shawl Ministry, Red Cross Drives, and more. Check out the at home missions we sponsor here at BUMC!

In the community is our judea

Across Blacksburg and the New River Valley we partner with, aid, and operate several organizations - including our community garden, the Montgomery County Christmas Store, To Our House, and many others. Check out the many ways we are serving in community!

Going beyond is our samaria

We go well beyond the 16 squares of Blacksburg with missions spanning several countries. Some include: yearly mission trips to Guatemala, partnership with Methodist churches in Kyiv, Ukraine, Global Ministry Missionaries, and more. Learn more about our international mission!
