Did you know our prayer team meets twice a month to pray for the people and ministries of Front Street UMC, as well as our nation and the world?  They would love to have you join them!  Gatherings are the 1st and 3rd Thursday of each month from 9:30-10:00 a.m. in the Prayer Room (located in the Heritage Center).  For more information please contact Lisa Smith at 336-266-2425.


Men of Front Street UMC, want to get a great start to your day at least once a week?  Come to the Men’s Breakfast Bible Study on Tuesday mornings from 7:00 a.m. Yes, some of our group are retired, but our mindset is not retired and we would celebrate the presence of any and all men.  Breakfast is available from 7:00 a.m. with a choice of diet (cereal or fruit) or ham biscuits, as well as coffee and juice.  The Bible Study portion begins at 7:30 a.m. and concludes by 8:30 a.m.  Click here for more information.
Backpack Ministry Food Drive
While children are out of school at Eastlawn, the school system will provide bag lunches that the families can pick up each day.
At Front Street, we will continue to provide food bags for the families each Friday. To make this possible, we will continue with our Food Drive. As you are able, please drop food by the church.  Below is a list of items we are collecting.  Ms. Marcy and her volunteers will get the bags of food to Eastlawn for distribution each Friday. We appreciate your continued help as the love of Christ is shared with these needy families.
  • Pasta
  • Pasta sauce (No glass jars please)
  • Rice
  • Canned beans
  • Canned meat
  • Cans of corn or mixed vegetables
  • Cans of fruit
  • Snack packs (Jell-O or fruit cups)
Please note that only the food items listed above can be utilized for this ministry.  All other items will be donated to a local food pantry.  Please deposit your donations in the Reading Area.  This collection will continue until further notice.

Ways to give


During this time when we are not gathering for in-person services, the church must continue to operate.  So, we ask that you continue to support the mission and ministry of the church with your financial giving in one of the following ways:


Using the Text-to-Give service, all you have to do is text the amount you wish to contribute to our dedicated text phone number 336-489-GIVE (4483). The amount you wish to give goes in the body of the text message. The first time you do it will take you through a short set-up process where you will designate a credit or debit card to which the amount should be charged.

Just save the phone number in your Contacts, and the next time your contribution is as easy as sending a text message. It can be done during the Morning Prayer Service on each of the next Sundays, or anytime during the week that you happen to think of it. 



+  Give Online using the online giving option through the our website.  Click here or visit the GIVE tab at the top of this page.

+ Use the online banking option of the bank with which you do business to send your tithe electronically.


Mail your contribution to the church at:
PO Box 2597
Burlington, NC 27216


Questions?  Contact Tammy Page at


It is now possible to make your offering contributions simply by sending a text message.  To take advantage of text giving, send a text message with the dollar amount you wish to give (eg "$10") to (336)489-GIVE(4483).  The first time you give via text, you will have to fill out a short form with your billing information. This form will appear on your phone after you hit send on your first text.  After this initial setup, giving is as easy as sending a text message.  Please note, text giving only goes to the general fund (budget).  Questions?  Please contact Tammy Page in the church office or email
