Serve

“What does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God.”
Micah 6:8

Seeking justice and serving others is at the heart of who we are at Severna Park UMC. We believe that everyone is called and able to Go Out in Faith. We invite you to serve with us and connect with a mission where you can live out your call. Find out more about how we serve locally, nationally and internationally by exploring the links below.
