Mission Trips

Living a Life of Service through Missions
Our community is passionate about living a life of service and mission. Virtual and in-person trips offer opportunities of connection with the partners that we serve.

Rebuild from GA Tornado
Looking for a chance to rebuild homes? Join us October 23-27 for a trip to Griffin, GA: Register HERE
All levels of construction skills are welcome, cost is $200/pp. We are rebuilding from tornado damage on January 15, 2023 when 2,000 homes and businesses were destroyed. Spalding County was one of seven counties in GA that were declared federal disaster areas. Shortly after the storms passed, the Spalding County Sheriff said there was at least $17 million in damage across the county, and he expected that number to go up. We are partnering with St. Simons Presbyterian Church for this rebuilding mission work. Please contact Ivan Johnson or Amy DeVore with questions.

Rebuild in Haywood County
The South Charlotte United Methodist Church Partnership Trip - Haywood County Sunday, Nov 5-Wednesday, Nov 8: Register HERE
As part of our Global Impact commitment to support our neighbors who are impacted from local disasters, we have focused on the mountains of North Carolina. Haywood County residents continue to recover from severe flooding which killed six people and displaced hundreds in August 2021. Construction experience is not required; experienced leaders will train and guide the group. Youth 8th grade and older are welcome to participate if accompanied by a parent. Cost to participate is $80, which includes room & board. (Minimum deposit upon registration is $40.) The team will have the option to travel together or separately.

Home2Home Delivery Trips
One way to connect with the families we serve is through our Home2Home delivery day trips. We deliver and set up furniture that has been collected by our congregation.
