Matthew 25:40 tells us that what we do for the least among us, we do for Him.
For five decades, North Georgia Methodists have answered this call by supporting the good works of Action Ministries through financial gifts, volunteer service, and prayer. Action Ministries is doing good for the most vulnerable among us throughout the North Georgia Conference through its ministry to the hungry, the homeless, and the addicted.
Economic conditions in the past few years have affected people in every community. We all know good people who have lost jobs and homes through no fault of their own. The need for services has never been greater than it is now and, unfortunately, is growing every day.
In this time of greatest need, the Conference has had to make some difficult financial decisions, including reducing the funding Action Ministries has traditionally received directly from apportionments. To help offset this reduction, in 2009 the Conference approved an annual Special Offering to benefit Action Ministries.
The need for Action Ministries’ services has never been greater than it is now and, unfortunately, is growing every day.
Just to give you several examples of how Action Ministries has helped:
Action Ministries has program offices in Athens, Atlanta, Augusta, Decatur, Gainesville, and Rome as well as 30 transitional homes throughout North Georgia.
Your response to the Special Offering will have a major impact on our ability to continue doing the work of serving those who need help and hope the most.
