Missions & Outreach


OUR HEARTS ARE ON FIRE FOR MISSION

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 INTERNATIONALLY

The Attaways

We had the privilege of serving in Thailand from 2013 through 2017.  Since returning to the states, we have maintained close connection with our team members and Thai students.  One of the most rewarding things has been the opportunity to lead summer discernment trips back to Thailand with college students discovering to what and where God is calling them.  In addition, we speak at universities, churches and with individuals who are seeking to find their place in Missions.  Where is God calling you?

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.

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

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.
