local-outreach

Mount Pisgah UMC’s Local Outreach Ministry puts hands and feet on what it means to Love God, Love People.  Our mission reminds those in need, through tangible and spiritual support, that God cares for them.  Through local outreach we meet people where they are, just as they are and put a face on the God who loves them unconditionally.

homestretch

HomeStretch gives homeless parents and their children a safe and comfortable place to live while simultaneously helping them address the root causes of their situation and return to a life of self-reliance and stability. When they graduate from HomeStretch, the families have a strong grasp on their finances, have reduced insurmountable debt and have accumulated savings. Many have even increased their income through job skills training and improved employment. They are always looking for family and budget mentors as well as many other volunteer opportunities For more information you can email Carol Swan at cswan@homestretch.org or visit the Homestretch web site.

restoration-atl

Restoration ATL was created to help redefine local missions in the city. The leaders of RATL (pronounce rattle–as in Ez 37:7) were not interested in starting another mission opportunity in the city for those in the suburbs to drive in, drop off, and drive away–creating a transaction-like experience. No, our desire was to create an environment where being with was valued over doing for–which in turn would lead to transformation for all. For more information please contact Francella Perryman
