Praying for one another is a role and blessing of a church.
We have a team designated to pray for the needs of others.
Do you want to join the Prayer Team? Let's talk!
Do you have a prayer request to share with the prayer team?
We invite you to share it here or fill out a form at both entrances

Serving others is something we love to do together
Find the mission you love and let's begin to serve!
The last Sunday of every month, come to church to pick up your purple bag. Take it home, place non perishable goods in the bag and bring it back the 1st Sunday of each month. All donations are taken to the Penndel Food Pantry, which serves hundreds of families each week.

Four weeks during the year, Yardley UMC hosts families in transition. We are part of a larger mission to come alongside families in Lower Bucks County as they transition into housing.
