Ways to Serve in Our Community

 

 

Urgent Needs:

Annual Toy Drive
Our mission partner FCS Urban Ministries/Pride for Parents needs our help! Each year our church family helps provide toys and gifts that can be sold at reduced prices. This gives area families pride and dignity as they have the opportunity to purchase gifts and give those gifts to their children. Drop off gifts in the wooden bins in the lobby from now to December 17. (prideforparents.org)

Martin Luther King, Jr. Service Weekend – Save the Date
January 13 – 15th
We are once again partnering with Volunteer Decatur! to serve elderly home owners in need of home repairs.

Friends of Refugee’s Embrace Program: Urgent Needs
Infant car seats (non-expired, no convertible seats please), small beds (co-sleepers, pack n play, bassinet), 0-3M gently used clothing, size NB and 1 diapers, wipes, sleep sacks and swaddling blankets, baby carriers and nursing pads. Please drop in the wooden bin in the lobby marked “Embrace.”

Friends of Refugees

 

 

Every year, thousands of refugees are formally welcomed to the United States, carrying dreams of a better life and the desire to escape political, religious and ethnic persecution, or the violence of war within their home country. Many of those refugees have ended up in our own backyard–Clarkston, GA, which has been called “the most diverse square mile in America” by the New York Times Magazine. As the refugee population in Clarkston grew, the need for specialized human support service organizations became apparent. Friends of Refugees (FOR) was founded in 1995 for this purpose by Pat Maddox, a resident of Clarkston, full-time volunteer and current active Board member. In 2015, Friends of Refugees’ volunteers gave more than 40,000 hours to serve over 4,000 individuals across 7 program areas. These programs facilitated hundreds of job placements, served over 150 kids in our summer camp and after-school programs, taught hundreds of moms and kids English together, welcomed dozens of babies born to healthy moms in our labor doula program, filled over 90 family kitchen tables with fresh produce from their plots in our community gardens, created thousands of handcrafted items in the Refugee Sewing Society, and helped launch 16 new businesses through the StartME business accelerator.

Young Life East Atlanta

 

Young Life is a world-class organization for adolescents. Our staff and volunteers enter the world of kids, focusing on what matters to them – fun, adventure, friendship and a sense of significance. In doing so, we earn the privilege of talking to them about something that we believe matters most of all – the truth about God and His love for them.​ Our area is on the Eastside of Atlanta. We currently have both middle school and high school ministry at Decatur High, Druid Hills High, Lakeside High, Tucker High and Henderson Middle as well as ministry to teen moms at Cross Keys High School.
