Get involved in our ministries

There are a number of opportunities for individual participation within the life of the church. Our ministry reaches the Buncombe County community and the world.

We invite you to make Piney Mountain your spiritual home. Together we can grow in spirit and service. We invite you to join any of our many opportunities to serve:

Hominy Valley Energy Savers Network 

As a way of loving our neighbors and caring for the earth, we have partnered with the Energy Savers Network to do free weatherization and energy saving work in homes throughout our community. We fix air leaks, install weather stripping and LED lightbulbs, wrap hot water heaters, and do minor insulation. All of this is an effort to help the climate by helping people. Email kbates@wnccumc.net to join our volunteers or to sign up for an in-home audit. 

Caring for God's Creation

We live amidst a great ecological crisis in which the church must provide a theological and tangible response. As a church, we have responded by giving away more than 1,500 LED lightbulbs to our community, and by classes, hiking and partnering with the Energy Savers Network and Creation Care Alliance.

Medical Equipment loan closet

We loan medical equipment to anyone has need in the community. You may call (828) 667-3031 and leave a message in mailbox 3 if you are in need of any equipment. We are always looking for more volunteers to help with the medical loan closet. Click here to learn more.
