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.

School Break Bags
From now until Easter, oyou can provide providing breakfast and lunch for food-insecure schoolchildren. Pick up School Break Bags from the church and fill it with the list of non-perishable foods provided by Meals by Grace. Each bag you fill goes to child who needs a little help getting nutritious meals when they're not in school. The more bags you fill, the more children you feed!
Trinity Table Lunches
JCUMC will be handing out lunches at the Trinity Table Soup Kitchen on Sunday, May 9th!
Help make the day a success by donating supplies!! As you can imagine, the needs are different due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Trinity is handing out ONLY "to-go" lunches and we need 400 rather than the typical 200.
All donations should be dropped off at the church by Saturday, April 24th. A collection bin will be located outside the church office entrance and you may drop items off anytime during the week. If you have any questions or concerns contact Natalie Spradling (404)786-1595.
Girl Scout Deodorant Drive
Girl Scout Troop 14494 is partnering with The Backpack Project and JCUMC to collect deodorant throughout the month of May to help the homeless population in Georgia. The Backpack Project distributes backpacks containing many essential items, including deodorant, to homeless people in and around major cities in Georgia. Please bring in one or more sticks of deodorant in May to donate to Girl Scout Troop 14494's Deodorant Drive. Bins are located outside the church office and sanctuary entrances.
