At Johns Creek United Methodist Church, caring for the congregation and the community is a vital part of what it means to "love your neighbor as yourself." Every disciple of Jesus Christ is to love their neighbor. The church believes that the care and support of a loving community is crucial in equipping people to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. It is essential to first BE disciples.

Johns Creek United Methodist Church seeks to be and make disciples by providing opportunities to give and receive spiritual and emotional support. The care and support ministries of JCUMC are here to help connect people to God in the midst of times of struggle, pain, loss, and disorientation.

Career Network

Job Seekers and Career Changers can receive help from JCUMC Career Network. All aspects of life are impacted by job loss. At the same time, this transition creates a profound opportunity to find or renew faith in God. It is for these reasons that the Career Network Ministry was restarted 5 years ago for JCUMC members as well as for those in the community seeking career transition assistance.

This group meets at 7:00pm on the second Wednesday of each month Via ZOOM. Email for the link.
