Missions

Missions in our church are not events, they are our reason for being

 

Belle Meade UMC seeks to follow the example of Jesus, who cared for and loved deeply those who were sick, poor, oppressed, outcast, and marginalized. Living in service with others nurtures discipleship and helps us connect more closely to God, to one another, and to the needs of the world.

The people of Belle Meade UMC are actively engaged in service in our community through ongoing support of and volunteerism with established agencies and organizations who serve the poor, hungry and homeless. In addition to service and volunteering, each month a special communion offering is designated to financially support an agency or organization committed to serving others.
