The Greater Clarksburg Cooperative Parish strives to provide for the community in whatever ways we can. In order to do so, we work together to create an extensive network of support. Many of our churches have active food pantries, or support churches that do. Geographically, we cover much of the Clarksburg area, and support ministries that seek to fill in all gaps that government assistance cannot.

Services for the Unhoused

The Clarksburg Cooperative Parish works with community groups and the United Way to work with our unhoused neighbors in a variety of ways. Below are just a few of the regular services offered through the Parish and its partners.

A bagged lunch is available every day from 2:30PM-3:00PM outside of First United Methodist Church (Corner of 2nd and W Pike St.) This will transfer to Shelter Support beginning Dec 3rd.

Document services are available through the United Way, which can be contacted at (304) 624-6337

As we enter the Winter, the main work of our parish takes the form of our Winter Shelter, again at FUMC, offering shelter from the cold and meals. The shelter will run from Dec. 3rd to March 17, from 8:00PM-8:00PM. Check-in is offered from 8:00PM-9:00PM each night.
