At Cokesbury we believe that mission and other social action are an integral part of our faith in Jesus Christ.

One ongoing missions is serving food to the homeless. On the third Tuesday of the month we serve food to the homeless at New Hope Christian Fellowship, which is located at 2048 Watergate Court, Edgewood, MD.  If you would like to prepare food or help serve, please contact Kathy Plummer.
