Find Your Place

That is ... your place at Towson UMC

Have you ever stood in front of a buffet and been slightly overwhelmed by the selection? There are so many good things that it can be hard to choose! 

Towson UMC’s ministries can feel like that magnificent buffet -- there are so many things to choose that we may have trouble deciding what to do or where to join. 

You could be part of a Sunday School class or help lead one.  You could help with the youngest children.  You could join a choir—we have one for every age.  You could work on a mission, or even go on a mission trip.  You could pray in silence with Attentional Prayer every Tuesday or you could pray with your hands at any of the Prayer Shawl groups.  You could help out at UMYF.  You could come to the Women’s Retreat or help with the group who decides how we take care of the building.  You could answer phones in the office or help people find their way around the church on Sunday mornings.  You could hand out bulletins or share your IT skills.  If you have a gift or training or knowledge, you will be able to find a way to use it for God here at church.  If you have a desire to serve the Lord with a group of committed disciples, you can do that here.  If you have an idea for something you would like to try, you can sort it out and get support here. 

Pray about how God wants you to serve and grow here at Towson UMC.  Ask a staff member what ministries might be God’s calling for you right now. Click here for our contact information

May God bless you that you might be a blessing for others!

Rev. Margery
