“The outreach ministries of the church shall give attention to local and larger community ministries of compassion, justice, and advocacy.”
– United Methodist Church Book of Discipline 252.2.b
Oconee Street’s Committee for Mission Outreach helps to engage our church in service to and advocacy with the greater Athens community and the world. Together we provide food and shelter for hungry and homeless families. We mentor immigrant youth to give opportunities for higher education. We provide immediate aid to families in crisis due to detention, deportation and/or economic hardship. We build relationships across all the differences that can divide us to encourage justice, understanding and peace. The Committee also provides annual financial support to local, national and international organizations that share our mission priorities.
The Mission Outreach Committee is comprised of church members and active Oconee Street attendees. We meet on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 6 p.m. in 717 Oconee Street (parsonage building) or on Zoom.
