We Are Counting Down to November 11! It's Time to Spread the Word
"When you give, you give HOPE," that is the message Action Ministries is spreading as we count down to Action Ministries Sunday in North Georgia Churches. This Special Offering scheduled for Sunday, November 11, will help provide more hunger, housing and education solutions to our neighbors in need.
Here are a few examples of how Action Ministries is helping across the North Georgia Conference:
Our Transitional Housing program helps churches solve family homelessness.
Nine out of 10 families leave the program self-sufficient.
Hunger programs like our Smart Lunch, Smart Kid initiative helps churches address child and family nutrition issues.
New! Ask us about our new Food Box Initiative that feeds families of four for several days for just $5.00.
New! Housing Opportunities for People with Aids/HIV coming in October.
New! Supportive Services for Homeless Veterans program coming in November
