    Every year our church awards scholarships / loans to college students of all ages. The funds are generated by various groups in the church by fundraisers and memorials. Applications are accepted starting in March and are awarded in June. More information is available here.

  • Communion for Shut-ins

    If you have a passion for reaching out to the elderly and infirm, you can join our volunteers who take communion to those who are unable to attend church and share it with them at their place of residence.

  • Exchange Club

    The Exchange Club of Alamance holds classes for at risk youth, as mandated by the court system.

Our church provides light snacks along with the space for them to hold their sessions. 

  • Lamplighters Ministry

    Lamplighters are a group of handy folks who help out those in need of a little repair or maintenance around the house. They have done everything from raking leaves to building ramps for those who need a little help. 

  • Library Ministry

    One of our most active ministry teams is those who work with our church library. This team keeps our library full of new and relevant books and materials for all age groups. Each year they have several programs to encourage young readers for both our playschool and our church children and their families. In addition, they serve regularly at South Graham Elementary school and work side by side with the school librarians there!

  • Little Free Pantry

    Located on our front lawn, the little free pantry is spot to share or take needed food items for the community. The box was created by one of our Girl Scouts as a mission project.

  • Prayer Shawl Ministry

    We are blessed with our crochet group and several other folks who use their talents to knit and/or crochet prayer shawls to give to those who are in special need of God's love, comfort, and compassion. 

  • FUMC Graham Play school

    We truly feel that providing a safe and nurturing place for children to grow and learn in a Christ- centered environment is a ministry. We have served our community for many years and our dedicated play school staff are now teaching the children of our former students! Click here for details about FUMC Graham Play School.

  • Robeson County Youth Mission trip

    For many years, the Senior High youth and adult counselors from our church have traveled to Robeson County, NC to spend a week growing in fellowship and service by building ramps for those in need. To pay for the expenses of this mission trip, they hold fundraisers throughout the year.
