Missions

 

We're committed to being the hands and feet of Christ within our community and world.  As Christ commanded in Matthew 28:19, "Go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit."  At Simpsonwood UMC, we believe that as a Christ-centered church, moving outside the walls of our sanctuary is a non-negotiable. We seek to make Christ known through local and international missions.

Our goals for 2017 include:

  1. Getting more members directly involved in serving the needy in our community and around the world.
  2. Developing deeper relationships with the missions that we support to allow our gifts to best serve their cause.
  3. Make certain that those we serve know that we come in the name of Jesus Christ, our Savior and THEIR Savior.  

Simpsonwood, as a community that cares, let us gather together in support of our neighbors in need.  Donations of canned food and personal care items will be accepted to benefit the Norcross Cooperative Ministry.  Collection boxes will be at building entrances.  Contact  Wendy Willis for more information.

ONGOING MISSION OPPORTUNITIES

RE-CHRIST MINISTRIES - RE-CHRIST Ministry reaches at-risk youth and their families (persons with no relationship to Jesus Christ) through evangelism and enrichment mentoring. Opportunities include tutoring during the after school program for K-5th graders one day per week during the school year, classes in English, Bible study and QUARTERLY EVENTS such as on site worship services, block parties, fall festivals, etc.

Please contact  Johnny Johns, Charles Battle, or the church office if you can help in any way at one of our upcoming events. Come join our current group of 26 volunteers from SUMC serving and experience the joy of establishing a relationship with a child and sharing the love of Christ.

HOPE Ministry - Mentor families from Simpsonwood provide support and encouragement to help families navigate difficult situations. For more information, please contact Jann Roeder.  

SafeHouse Outreach- SafeHouse Outreach is an urban outreach committed to affecting real change in the lives of those in the margins of society, by providing a hand up, not just a hand out. SafeHouse provides practical, emotional, and physical assistance to those living in the margins, and help integrate them back into society - to lead healthy, functional lives.
