The final words that Jesus spoke on earth before his ascension into heaven was:

“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Acts 1:8

Missions at Providence UMC focus on participation and hands-on involvement throughout the congregation. In addition to whole congregation missions efforts, many Sunday School classes and small groups partner with specific agencies.

Local Areas of Focus and Partners:

Haiti Mission:

The Haiti Mission began more than 30 years ago and is the longest running global mission project in United Methodism. The focus of our outreach is:

  • Education
  • Water
  • Healthcare
  • Economic Development

Work teams travel to Haiti each year.

Families Forward Charlotte:

God does not call the equipped; He equips the called. – Hebrews 13:20-21
