Nicaragua Mission Team

There are several missions emerging and we hope that the entire congregation can be a part of the wonderful ministry happening now!

Our Daily Bread

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.

One Community Garden

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

Young Harris and Scouting         


The very first meeting of Cub Scout Pack 310 will meet the 2nd Tuesday of each month at

6:30 p.m. in the Family Life Center.  


Young Harris UMC will be chartering a Cub Scout Den meeting during the upcoming school year. Daryll Victorio and Camille May are working as members to help charter this new den. They are long devotees in scouting and even met one another as counselors for a scouting camp - a marriage made by scouting!


As of June 2018 the National Council has released the new Lion Cub program from the pilot phase for integration  into the Cub Scout program!  this means we will be recruiting Kindergarten-aged children to start our pack. Check out the website for more information on the new program.
