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.

To learn more, please contact Pastor of Care Susan Gilbert via phone at (706) 869-0888
or via email below.

FAITH CARE 

FaithCare is a free clinic that offers faith-based medical and spiritual care to treat the whole person. FaithCare provides treatment for acute minor illness, ongoing primary care, counseling and prescription assistance for Columbia County residents.

Visits are by appointment only, so please call (706) 829-2584. Phones are monitored by volunteers, and calls may not be returned immediately.





FAMILY PROMISE 

Family Promise of Augusta is committed to helping homeless families of the surrounding area achieve lasting independence by providing safe shelter, meals, day care, and support services for these families. We also partner with programs designed to address the underlying causes of homelessness. Wesley hosts Family Promise once a quarter.

FOREIGN MISSIONS 

Our foreign mission teams have traveled to Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Kenya, the Dominican Republic, Haiti, Cuba, Puerto Rico, and Russia. They have hosted medical clinics, Vacation Bible Schools, and women’s handiwork workshops, and assisted with construction projects.

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.

For more information, please contact
Pastor David Blackwood via email below.


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 7:00 AM at the Brandon Wilde Clubhouse for breakfast and a short devotional. Breakfast is available for $10. Afterward, they go into the community or around the church to do basic repairs, build wheelchair ramps, or do construction work for those in need.

For more information, please contact
Roger Yancey via email below.

Pumpkin Patch

The Pumpkin Patch is an annual fundraiser with 100% of its proceeds benefiting Wesley’s foreign mission teams.

Wesley UMCwill announce the dates for the 2021 Pumpkin Patch once we get closer to the fall.

For more information, please contact
Pastor David Blackwood via email below.

Relief 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.

For more information, please contact
Dan Armstrong via email below.


ReStart Augusta

ReStart Augusta is a non-profit partner of Wesley UMC run entirely by volunteers who build, paint, and deliver beds to
those without them.

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.

To learn more, please contact Tami Bernhardt
via phone at (706) 414-7630 or email below.

YArd Sale

The Yard Sale is usually held twice a year, and the proceeds from the sale support various mission teams or ministry opportunities at Wesley UMC.
