Serving The Community

God is moving in the world, and we want to join up with what He is already doing.  Below you will find just some of the ways our church is looking outwards to serve those in the local community and the world beyond.  Please join up with these important ministries!

 

Welcome Table:

The Welcome Table at Skyland provides a free breakfast on Saturday mornings to support and promote community. The ministry began in the fall of 2013 through the efforts of four area churches. Breakfast is served each Saturday from 9:30-11:00am by volunteers from the partner churches. Everyone from the community is welcome to come enjoy a hearty meal and the opportunity to visit with others around the table.

To find out more about The Welcome Table, we invite you to join us for breakfast this Saturday morning!

Any questions can be directed to Patty at pjolb@yahoo.com.

 

Habitat For Humanity Construction Crews:

Skyland UMC has been supporting Habitat for Humanity Asheville chapter for over 20 years.  That support includes Skyland members volunteering their time and services to building the annual Methodist as well as an annual church wide donation to Habitat for Humanity.  The Methodist house draws volunteers from the churches in the Western North Carolina Methodist District.  In recent years we have teamed up with the local Presbyterian faith community to build the house.  Volunteer opportunities are available over the 10-12 weeks build cycle.  No previous experience in building is required.  Habitat for Humanity provides all of the tools and materials and you work under the direction of a skilled building supervisor.   Building opportunities range from framing to painting during the weekend and on Saturday’s.  A typical day starts at 8:30am with a safety briefing and then the day concludes by 3 to 3:30pm.   For those interested in volunteering, submit your names to the church office.

 

ABCCM:

With five different ministries ABCCM provides services in the following ways: help in time of short-term crisis; residential, educational, and food programs for homeless veterans and for women and their children; hope, direction, and compassion to inmates at the Buncombe County Detention Center; and access to health care to the uninsured.
