Gig Harbor United Methodist Church places Service above self through personal acts of contribution and commitment to our church family, the Gig Harbor Community and the world. We exist not to serve ourselves but through giving of our time, our gifts, and our Christian Faith, and nurturing those in need.
Use your freedom to serve one another in love - that's how freedom grows. - Gal. 5:13
Here are just a few of the many ways we Serve our community:
Jamaa Letu Orphanage in the Congo- This is an orphanage that our United Methodist Conference partners with to provide support- in prayer, finances, and labor. Our church is learning about this endeavor and making a commitment.
Mental Health- for 2018, we will focus on learning more about mental health and the ways we can support individuals and family struggling with mental health issues affecting daily life. We've hosted a First Aid Mental Health Training day.
