Sunday, October 21, churches across North Georgia will receive the Aldersgate Homes / Camp Collinswood Special Offering. A related agency of the North Georgia Conference, this offering is a major source of funding for this important ministry.
Aldersgate Homes strives to help people with developmental disabilities lead meaningful and productive lives by providing them with residential support and recreational opportunities. The ministry supports people with developmental disabilities to live independent lives by assisting with rental deposits and providing furniture. They also provide respite weekends for people who are living at home in order to give the caregivers some “time off” and provide a change of scenery.
Camp Collinswood on Lake Oconee offers a wonderful place for all of our Conference to enjoy God’s world. The Camp, which is open to all and universally accessible, offers comfortable cottages, a fully equipped dining/meeting hall, a spacious pavilion, a lakefront boathouse, a gazebo, and dock. It is a popular destination for church retreats.
Aldersgate/Collinswood ministry is exploring new ways to partner with North Georgia churches and new ways to advocate for our friends with developmental disabilities and fully include them in the life of the church.
Please give generously to this special offering.
