CARE

Wesley Church is known for our variety of outreach opportunities.

We believe in being the hands and feet of Jesus, right here in our community, as well as in foreign missions. 

Congregational CARES

The mission of Congregational Care is to provide care and support to members and friends of Wesley UMC. This important ministry also provides rewarding opportunities for people to personally serve others. Some of these opportunities include Wesley Cares small group, Meal Ministry, Flower Ministry, Prayer Card Ministry, and Prayer Shawl Ministry. We also offer other support through Pastoral
counseling and Grief Support Group.

LAMAR MILLEDGE ELEMENTARY MINISTRY

Wesley UMC has partnered with Lamar Milledge Elementary School to bring tutors to each classroom and to hold coat, shoe, and school supply drives, as well as toy drives at Christmas for children in need.

Mechanics Ministry

People with older or unneeded cars often donate them to Wesley. Our team of mechanics then provides a basic tune-up and fixes any other mechanical issues before identifying a client in need of a car.

If you have more questions about the ministry or want to donate your vehicle, contact the church office at (706) 869-0888
or email Dianna Teagarden below.

Men in Mission

The Men in Mission meet every Tuesday morning at 8 AM at the church for a "Bring Your Own Breakfast" meal. The group's weekly meeting begins with the business portion of the meeting followed by a book or bible study. Afterward, Men in Mission go into the community, or around the church, to do basic repairs, build wheelchair ramps, or do construction work for those in need.

Relief and Recovery

The Wesley Relief and Recovery Team leads a number of construction and storm relief projects each year. Projects range from one-day local projects to week-long or longer out-of-town disaster recovery trips. You might think you are signing up to serve, but you will discover that you receive more in return than you could ever give.

WESLEY CARES

The purpose of this ministry is to extend God’s love through reassurance to those during time of need. These reassurances may include phone calls, cards, emails, visits, transportation to doctor appointments, and any other needed services. This group meets the first Thursday of each month to review and update the Wesley Cares recipients list and to also make special cards with crafted Christian keepsakes made by the volunteers.
