Serving Christ in the world may involve attempting things you’ve never done before. If God calls you to
serve, God will equip you to respond. “Like good stewards of the manifold grace of God, serve one another with whatever gift each of you has received.” (I Peter 4:10 NRSV)
Serve or learn more
Help people begin to recover and rebuild following natural disasters. Teams are dispatched to areas
across the Southeast, where personal property is lost to floods, tornadoes or hurricanes, and assist
with debris removal and construction efforts. A willingness to serve is the only requirement, and
skills can be learned on the job. Trips last a few days up to two weeks.
Serve in a variety of ministries aiding residents of an isolated, distressed rural area in the
Appalachian Mountains of Kentucky. Help coordinate and deliver food boxes and truckloads of
vegetables to Red Bird Mission. Provide Christmas cheer and presents to students in Red Bird
School. Lend a hand to build safe, warm, new homes for families living in the area.
Be a part of spreading the Gospel globally by going on a mission trip in the U.S. or abroad. Teams are
formed to support specific needs, such as building a women’s safe house in South Africa, or to serve
in specific locations, such as youth missions work in Atlanta or Chicago. Opportunities are
announced as they are planned.
You make a difference in the lives of God’s people around the world when you give through St.
Mark’s. A portion of your gifts – and the gifts of other United Methodists – are directed to global ministry.
Through the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) we bring God’s hope, healing and
renewal to people whose lives have been disrupted by war, conflict or natural disaster in more than
80 countries. You can participate locally in UMCOR through special offerings and supply drives at
Through the connected congregations of the United Methodist Church, we accomplish more than
we could ever hope to do alone.
