I was able to travel with an Aldersgate Team in 2011 to Panama. It was one of the greatest and most meaningful experiences of my life. We were able to minister to a village deep in the jungles pf Panama bringing them the love of Christ through our teaching and actions…. The worship services were amazing and though there was a language barrier, we were all worshiping Christ and needed no translator.” AUMC Member

SERVING NATIONALLY

“Missions made me feel closer to God, as I get to help the people that may be of need. It gives me a great feeling to be able to make a difference in somebody’s life. God wants us to reach out and serve others, Love thy Neighbor as yourself.” AUMC Member

An intergenerational group from Aldersgate goes annually to Kentucky on the Redbird Mission.

I am reminded of how blessed I am, and my life is enriched by all of the wonderful people I have met.” AUMC Member

SERVING WITH OUR CONFERENCE

“Missions help me to grow through going out and seeing what others are living. It gives me a feeling of self worth that I hope to pass on. Any talents that I might have need to be used and not hidden away.” AUMC Member

Salkehatchie

Salkehatchie Summer Service is a pioneering servant ministry at selected sites in South Carolina involving high school and college age youth, adult community leaders and persons of different cultures in upgrading housing, motivating community cooperative efforts by helping persons to help themselves, and providing all participants with opportunities for personal growth and service.

Epworth Childrens Home

Since 1896, Epworth Children’s Home has been a place for children to grow, learn and be loved. Children ages four – 18 come to us from broken family systems and our goal is to nurture and love them by providing education, counseling, medical care and spiritual enrichment. Our aim is to break the destructive cycle of abuse, neglect and shame and replace it with an opportunity for each child to live a life of self-respect, responsibility and productivity.

Million Hours of Service

United Methodists in ministry with or for children—whether tutoring, on a school board, serving as a reading partner and more—are being asked to log their hours on a new website launched by the conference and overseen by the Children in Poverty Task Force. The hours can be past, present and future (from Annual Conference last June through now and beyond).

Imagine No Maleria Initiative

Aldersgate Special Needs Ministry

A United Methodist Agency formed by families and friends seeking to prepare for the future of their loved ones with developmental disabilities by providing a faith-based residential setting.
