Congregations for Children


Congregations 4 Children (C4C) is transforming the lives of children and families impacted by poverty through collaboration with public schools.

C4C's Primary Focus Areas are:

  • Poverty Awareness/Advocacy
  • K-3 Literacy
  • Basic Needs
  • Family Engagement


Central United Methodist Church has been chosen to partner with Emma Elementary School in West Asheville. So watch for this newsletter each month for things you can do to help us with our four goals found above. We need all of you!


Helping hungry children in Asheville

C4C 1

This summer Central members joined forty other area churches in the greater Asheville area in feeding children a nutritional lunch.  In Buncombe County only 10% of children receiving free lunch during the school year receive the nourishment necessary for proper physical, cognitive, and social development during the summer months.


For more information on Congregations for Children, check out their website or this brochure.
