Church Missions

 

Wesley Woods

The Mother’s Day Offering provides critical funding for Benevolence assistance, Wellness programming and Pastoral care to older adults living in a Wesley Woods community. Help is provided to older adults in need of financial assistance to remain in their Wesley Woods home. Wellness programming includes balance and fitness classes, as well as on-site nurses to assist with medical-related issues, so that residents maintain a higher quality of life. A Wesley Woods chaplain provides spiritual counsel for residents, including grief support and hospital visits.

Built on industry best practices, our Christian faith and bold, new innovative approaches toward child welfare, Wellroot is the leading faith-centered family services organization in Georgia. As an agency of The United Methodist Church in North Georgia, Wellroot Family Services’ programs were designed to respond to the needs of children and families through faith-centered service. With a focus on supporting youth from infancy through early adulthood, we help people reach their God-given potential through the encouragement and love of a healthy home.

Mountain Top Boys Home

The mission of Mountain Top Boys Home is to help young boys prepare to take an ethical and responsible citizenship role in their communities.

Mountain Top Boys Home cares for young boys who through no fault of their own become residents of our agency.  Their daily life is organized family style and guided by professional staff and house parents who counsel and mentor each boy.

 These youth are referred by Georgia Department of Family and Child Services. They often arrive neglected, immature, challenged, and have special physical, social, and emotional needs. Upon completion of Mountain Top's individualized program, they become young men who are ready to take a faith-based and responsible citizenship role in life.

Global Missions

UMCOR

UMCOR comes alongside those who suffer from natural or human-caused disasters - be it famine, hurricane, war, flood, fire or other events—to alleviate suffering and to be a source of help and hope for those left most vulnerable. We provide relief, response and long-term recovery grants when these events overwhelm a community’s ability to recover on their own. UMCOR also provides technical support and training for partners to address emerging and ongoing issues related to disaster relief, recovery, and long-term health and development.


Red bird missions

The Red Bird Missionary Conference is one of three missionary conferences in the United States. A missionary conference serves in an area where local resources cannot meet the needs; therefore mission support from the whole Church is necessary.

Red Bird Missionary Conference is located in the Southeastern Kentucky. It is the most comprehensive mission effort of The United Methodist Church in the United States, providing outreach and services that minister to the whole person (spiritual, physical, social, and economic).


hinton rural life center

Hinton Center is a United Methodist agency, and we welcome all — all individuals, all faith traditions, and non-faith-based groups seeking to meet, retreat, and/or serve in a spirit of acceptance and mutual respect.

Many of our guests come to make a difference in this rural community by participating in mission outreach, making homes warmer, drier, and safer for our neighbors in need.
