How and where can I serve?
Whether down the street in Roswell, in downtown Atlanta, or around the globe, we are called to use our God-given, unique spiritual gifts to be stewards of God’s grace (1 Peter 4:10).  If you would like to discuss ways you can serve or need more information on serving in any area, please contact Linda King at lking@rumc.com

How do I know where I should serve?
Special abilities God has given believers through the Holy Spirit are called Spiritual Gifts. They are given to individual’s who accept Christ in order to do God’s work throughout His kingdom. As Christians, it is a privilege to serve Him through our church as the body of Christ within our own community and beyond. We encourage you to complete your explore to find your own Spiritual Gifts by completing a Spiritual Gifts Assessment. By identifying your gifts and passions you will be able to find the opportunities to fulfill God’s purpose for your life.

Our Strategic Mission:

Roswell UMC has adopted a vision for missions from Acts 1:8 (NIV), “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” We interpret this verse to help group missions in the following ways:
Jerusalem – Serving in our community (Family Promise)
Judea – Equipping leaders in the church that already exists (Divine Providence Training Center)
Samaria – Serving the marginalized in our community and the world (WellSpring Living)
Ends of the Earth – Supporting missionaries and partners who are bringing the Gospel to those without exposure (The Mission Society – Peru)
