There are several missions emerging and we hope that the entire congregation can be a part of the wonderful ministry happening now!
Once a month, a group of volunteers get together to serve a meal to the less fortunate of the Athens Community. The volunteers plan a simple, but nutritious meal and serve from the kitchen in the dining hall of Oconee Street Methodist Church. It is a humbling and reward experience. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact the church office 706-543-2612.
In 2015 Young Harris Memorial UMC and Action Ministries celebrated the dedication of One Community Garden. Located on the property of Young Harris Memorial, One Community Garden is a spac for community members to grow produce for themselves and help feed the hungry in Athens. Fresh vegetables grown at One Community Garden will feed guests at Our Daily Bread, which has served the Athens community since 1989.
This is an exciting opportunity for people in Athens who are interested in lessening the impact of hunger on our neighbors in need. For more information contact the church office at 706-543-2612
