CHURCH MISSION OPPORTUNITIES
At Braddock Street UMC we strive to connect to our community by building relationships with our neighbors. These ministries are an outpouring of that mission.

  • Every Monday night of the year, we provide dinner for anyone in the community. Some have minimum employment, some are homeless, some are lonely and others are church members. We come as a community to break bread around the table and share life. Dinner is served in the Fellowship Hall at 6:00 PM. Please enter at the Braddock Street door. If you need a meal delivered, please call the church office (540) 667-3366 Monday morning before 11:00 AM. Contact Megan Pugh .

  • Twice a month, Braddock Street members of the United Women in Faith Deborah-Ruth Circle put together food items for children. These items are taken home to feed the children over the weekend. We work with other churches and organizations to make sure children have food every single weekend. Contact Kathy White

  • Building Bridges at Braddock follows Jesus’ teachings by building relationships with our Latino community to help them feel welcomed and to empower them for success. We partner with Literacy Volunteers Winchester Area to provide English as a second language and with Just Neighbors to help access immigration services.


    Every Wednesday from 6:00 - 7:30 PM we offer ESL classes (English as a second language for Spanish speakers) here at Braddock Street UMC. We also offer English language educational child care during that time.

  • One major area of food waste in America is in farmers’ fields, where crops that don’t meet top-grade quality are left to rot or be plowed under. The Society of St. Andrew provides opportunities for volunteers to glean these fields. Gleaning is the traditional biblical practice of gathering crops that would otherwise be left to rot and gives the food to those who have food scarcity. Braddock Street Church works with SoSA, providing gleaners throughout the late summer and early fall months. (Gleaning apples for SoSA) Contact  Robyn Miller
