Food Ministries

Bridge Ministry:

Several times a year, we provide a meal to those in need through the Bridge Ministry. This ministry primarily meets the needs of those without shelter in nearby Easton, PA. Volunteers plan and prepare the meal while our guests participate in a worship experience, and serve the meal following worship. This ministry takes place on Wednesday evenings throughout the year.

Slate Belt Community Meal:

Together with our friends from the Ackermanville United Methodist Church, we provide a meal to those in need on the 3rd Sunday of each month. Volunteers plan, prepare, and serve the meals while seeking to provide nourishment, comfort, and kindness to our guests. This ministry takes place at First UMC Bangor on Sundays at 12:30 PM.

We seek to support our local food pantries, including the Portland – Upper Mt. Bethel Food Pantry (PUMP) and the emergency pantry at Slater Family Network. Throughout the year, check your church bulletin and newsletter for the most up-to-date information regarding current food drives.
