Winter Soup Ministry
In the winter months, Weekly soup suppers are delivered free of charge to 60-70 shut-ins and lower income families in our community. Members from Pine Grove, Mt. Zion UMC and surrounding Baptist churches work together in this project. If you would like to help with this ministry or know someone who needs a hot meal contact Carolyn Garland at: carolynjgarland@hotmail.com

Project Agape Christmas Shoe Boxes
Project AGAPE is a ministry to Armenia and is a collaborative effort of the North Carolina and the Western North Carolina Conferences of The United Methodist Church in a joint effort with the Armenian Apostolic Church. Each year Pine Grove collects Christmas Shoe Boxes for distribution to children in the Kashatagh region of Nagorno-Karabakh. A list of items to be placed in shoeboxes is available at the church.

Avery County Missional Network (ACMN)
Pine Grove supports the Avery County Missional Network. Hundreds of children in the Avery County school system depend on a reduced or free school lunch each day of the week during the school year for their basic nutritional needs; the weekends sadly offer a very different story! The Avery County Missional Network (ACMN) works with churches, businesses, and individuals to join together in providing nutritious food for children who struggle with food insecurity in Weekend Backpacks. Each week they pack the backpacks and then deliver them to the schools being served. To lean more go to: http://foodforaverychildren.com/
