Hospitality Ministry

Linda Szajna

The mission of the hospitality ministry is to provide a welcoming environment of love, acceptance, comfort, support, care, and unity for visitors, members, guests, and friends in order to enhance the worship experience, encourage fellowship, and help build a community of believers. We do this through welcome bags for guests, and through our Holy Grounds Cafe’ Following worship each week, everyone is invited to stay for refreshments and fellowship.

Grafton Fire Dept. Treats

Tracy Schriver


When - 3rd Monday of every month @ 8:00 PM

In 2016, Belden MC was looking for new ways to reach out to the community.  Member Ted Schriver had a suggestion.  As a volunteer on the Grafton Township Fire Department, he mentioned that on the third Monday of every month, during the GTFD Foundation meeting, they always brought in a sheet cake to celebrate all the volunteers who had a birthday that month.  Ted suggested that Belden could provide the birthday treats every month…and a wonderful tradition took off.

Belden MC has a sign-up sheet for our members to volunteer to provide treats each month.  You could say it’s volunteers celebrating volunteers. We’re now in our eighth year of a Belden volunteer and the Pastor going to the Fire Station at 8pm on the third Monday of each month, delivering treats, and praying over the GTFD volunteers. Treats include ice cream, donuts, cookies, brownies, scones, banana bread, muffins, and more!  Oh yes, and occasionally, cake!

It is a wonderful way for Belden MC to say thank you to these volunteers, who put their lives at risk, to provide emergency services to our community.

Keystone Pointe Service

Pastor David Walker

When - 1st Sunday of every month
Where – Keystone Pointe, La Grange, Ohio

Once a month we share the gospel to residents of the Keystone Pointe Health and
Rehabilitation Center with an uplifting worship service through a sermon
message, and hymn sing. After worship, we stay to fellowship with the residents

with lively conversation, cookies, or a light snack.

Outreach Committee

LeeAnn Jones

Belden Methodist Church serves the community in many ways. It is very important to us to love like Jesus did by lovingly reaching out to those in the community and to those within our church family who may be experiencing a difficulty such as an illness or a financial hardship. We celebrate milestones within our congregation such as the joy of  a new baby.  We visit shut-ins, deliver meals, send cards and flowers for uplifting encouragement. Sometimes, even new car tires are funded. Occasionally we “adopt” a family for a short while to help them to help them overcome a hardship.
