Matthew 25 Ministries

Matthew 25 Ministries is a food pantry and clothing closet serving the North Iredell Community. At Harmony UMC, we support Matthew 25 through our gifts and mission opportunities. Each month we will focus on items of greatest need to collect.  Matthew 25 will move into their new building in Harmony during April, 2018. This is an exciting time for this ministry as they will be able to assist more people.  Matthew 25's Mission statement - Our mission at Matthew 25 is to exemplify Christ Jesus and be His ambassadors to the North Iredell Community by providing food and clothing at no charge to those in need. We believe that we are endowed by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ with the responsibility to meet the physical and spiritual needs of our clients.
