Congregations for Children (C4C)

C4C logo


Congregations For Children (C4C) is a state-wide initiative of The United Methodist Church focused on reflecting the love of Christ to our “neighbors” by helping children in public schools who are living in poverty. Swansboro UMC's primary partnership is with Silverdale Elementary School in Maysville, NC.

C4C’s areas of focus include:

            • Supporting K-3 literacy
            • Helping with basic needs
            • Encouraging parental involvement
