Bread of Life Ministries

The Bread of Life Ministries, a nonprofit organization, exists to serve the hungry and the homeless people in the Augusta area. One nutritious meal a day, six days a week, served at the kitchen, seeks to relieve physical hunger and offer an opportunity for fellowship. Emergency housing is provided to those in need of shelter. This Agency has been formed by area churches whose Christian faith is very clear about responsibilities to those in need. We combine in our efforts to serve as the instrument of God as we help His people.

Bread of Life Ministries can be reached at (207) 626-3434.

Homebound Ministries

Our pastoral and lay visitation program provides caring support to those in hospitals and nursing care and to the homebound. We have trained lay Eucharistic Ministers and home communion ministry is available upon request. Audiotapes of worship services are available to loan, along with tape players.

Assistance to Local Families

The East Pittston Youth Group raises money to provide Thanksgiving food baskets to area families. They also “adopt” local families at Christmas, providing food and gifts.  This winter, 2008-2009, the East Pittston congregation has provided food and firewood to several area families.

Randolph UMC Nonprofit Use

Randolph UMC’s building is regularly used by numerous non-profit community organizations, including Girl Scout troops and Alcoholics Anonymous.
