Christmas Shoe Boxes For Armenia


Over 20 years ago, a vision was cast to respond to the great needs of the people of Armenia and across these two decades, our conferences have been richly blessed in partnership with Christians in Armenia, the oldest Christian nation in the world. Jesus sent Thaddeus and Batholomew to carry the Good News of the Gospel to the people of Armenia.

You can be directly involved in this unique mission of North Carolina United Methodists with Christians in Armenia. You are invited to prepare Christmas boxes in plastic shoe boxes. For many children in refugee communities located in the Kashatagh District, this is the only Christmas gift they will receive. For some of them, this will be the first toy they have ever received. Though these boxes may seem like a small gift, they will carry the priceless love of Christ. Children who receive these boxes will know that they have been remembered and loved.

To find box contents and packing instructions, please see AGAPE Christmas Box Ministry. Please bring the Shoe Boxes to Church before September 20th as they will be collected the last two weekends in September for shipment to Armenia in time for Christmas.

Mission Work Team To Liberia: November 14–23


The Beacon District of the NC Conference will serve as hosts for a mission trip to Liberia which is scheduled for November 14-23, 2013. The Reverends Ed Rutenkroger and Bill Haddock will serve as co-team leaders for the trip.

Steps to take if you are interested in going on this trip:



Vacation Bible School — 2013

VBS 2012

This year the Vacation Bible School (VBS) theme at New Hope United Methodist Church was Athens – Paul's Dangerous Journey to Share the Truth. Each day, during the week of June 17th through June 21st children and adults traveled back in time to the beautiful Grecian coast of ancient Athens! We met Apostle Paul on his second missionary journey and heard about his experiences. Families became part of history as they saw, heard, touched, and even tasted what it was like to live in ancient Athens.      Read More >>       

North Carolina Annual Conference 2013

The 2013 North Carolina Annual Conference was held at the Greenville Convention Center in Greenville, North Carolina on June 12-15, 2013. The theme for the quadrennium was a powerful image from Psalm 84, “Strength to Strength.”

An Update from Mozart Adevu

Mozart Adevu

Dear Friends,

I bring you greetings in this season of Easter.

I hope you and your families are doing great as we celebrate the life of the Risen Lord, who has exemplified to us His great love and kindness by His sacrifices. Our Lord certainly falls into step beside us daily just as He did to the two disciples journeying to Emmaus the very evening His tomb was discovered empty. We should each remember this especially over this period and indeed always in order to keep Him as our best companion on whom we focus our thoughts daily.

I am happy to share with you the joys of Sanda Manack, a small very remote village of about 450 people in the northern province of Sierra Leone. READ MORE >>
