  • 2020 Grants Available:  As you discern the mission and vision for 2020 within your community, we wanted to remind you of the grants available through our district. Please look below at the type of each grant and the requirements to apply. We expect to evaluate applications to award grants in the Spring, so applications should be submitted by March 1, 2020:
    • 2020 Church Vitality Grant Application - Our Northern Piedmont District Church Vitality Grants provide financial assistance to ministry which develops spiritual learning and growth of discipleship. Within the application you will need to articulate how disciples will mature with short term and long-term goals of spiritual growth.  The church applying must have paid their apportionments for the last two years and are up to date with their current apportionment commitments. For more information please contact Maria King at
    • 2020 Missional Engagement Grant Application - The focus for our Northern Piedmont District Missional Engagement grant process is toward the establishment of "partnerships in mission" formed by at least two congregations and their desire to reach out collectively beyond the walls and property of their churches to serve the needs and various populations within their communities. The rationale for this is for The United Methodist Church to be a more effective and greater presence of the Body of Christ that reflects and projects the love of God to our neighbors in a tangible and spiritually significant way. Churches applying must have a financial commitment to the endeavor and must have paid their apportionments for the last two years and be up to date with their current apportionment commitments. For more information please contact Lynne Gilbert at
