servant ministries Purpose:

Christ-like service is at the heart of the GSUMC family of faith and in so many ways our congregation has literally been the hands and feet of Christ.

Weekly, our Bread Ministry reaches out with food and spiritual support to those on the island. In addition, GSUMC provides both volunteer and financial support for the Christian Service Center, the ecumenical organization providing emergency support. Our members have had the opportunity to build relationships side by side with families through the Volunteers in Missions, Habitat for Humanity, storm recovery, and relief programs.
