Family Promise – Host Week: December 3-10, 2017
Together, our volunteers help provide a safe, homelike shelter where our guest families can remain intact.
Family Promise provides our volunteers a personal interaction with the families as well as an avenue to share the love of Christ.
What can I do: Provide and host dinner, fellowship, talk and listen, set up or take down guest rooms, stay overnight, wash linens, welcome homeless children and their parents as guests, shop for supplies, do laundry.
Who can serve: Volunteers of all ages are needed. Family Promise provides a great opportunity for families to volunteer together. Volunteers interacting directly with guests must attend training in advance.
Vickery Mill Elementary School After School Program
Vickery Mill Elementary School, located on Hwy. 9, is a brand new elementary school opened in Roswell just last year. Vickery Mill Elementary School has a good majority of children receiving free or reduced lunches. Action Ministries has partnered with the school to provide After School Programming for these children. RUMC and Chapel Roswell volunteers serve on Mondays and Thursdays from 3-5 p.m. at the Roswell Library to play, teach, and mentor to these students.
To find out more, contact Linda King at firstname.lastname@example.org or 770-261-1750.
ACTION After School Programming empowers both children and their parents to overcome poverty through educational programming in: literacy, mathematic foundations, and social and emotional skills. Parents receive support to help them succeed in parenting, college/trade school, and the workplace.
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 email@example.com
How do I know where I should serve?
Each of us receives special gifts when we accept Christ as our Savior. 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 explore your own Gifts by sampling different opportunities inside and outside the church. By identifying your gifts and passions you will be able to find the opportunities to fulfill God’s purpose for your life.
If you need help finding opportunities, contact Linda King at firstname.lastname@example.org or 770-261-1750.

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)
