Current Opportunities:


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 lking@rumc.com 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.

 

Great Day of Service – October 21, 2017 – 9-12 and 1-3

Be sure to set aside the morning or afternoon of October 21 to serve our neighbors. We’ve lined up several projects and opportunities both on campus and throughout Roswell so that everyone can get involved–couples, families, kids, youth, and adults. Reach beyond RUMC and serve others in the community to make connections, make a difference, and make an impact!

We are excited to offer two shifts for our Rise Against Hunger program (formerly FoodStock). We have set a goal of packaging 50k meals — that requires 200 volunteers!! We NEED your help. Kids as young as 3 years old can participate in this project.

When: Saturday, October 21 from 8:30 a.m. to noon or 12:30 to 2:30. (Several pre-day and post-day opportunities available as well)!!

Questions?  Linda King, lking@rumc.com 

 


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?
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 lking@rumc.com 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)
