KIDS HOPE USA

 

KIDS HOPE USA

One student. One mentor. One hour a week.

Johns Creek UMC is excited about our partnership with Kids Hope USA and Shakerag Elementary. Kids Hope USA partners churches with local schools to establish relationships through mentoring. Mentors are screened and trained. They are asked to meet with one student, one hour a week, for one school year. Each mentor/student pair has a Prayer Partner who is trained and whose main role is to support and encourage the mentoring relationship through prayer.

Mission Statement: 
To serve as the hands and feet of Christ in the world.  Matthew 25.34-40

Purpose Statement: 
To enable, encourage and "equip the saints" so that every member of the congregation is in ministry.  One can pray, give, and/or volunteer in our mission ministries.


Below you will see the "Missions of the Month" which are long standing missions and outreach of Johns Creek UMC.  These ministries form just the framework of the church's mission ministries and are designed for general participation by the "congregation."  But this does not include everything going on.  There are other ministries and programs being done by small groups and individuals within the church.  If you know of one then please let me know as I am building a data base.  Or if you are interested in some ministry then please let me know.  Our purpose is to realize every member in mission.
