Outreach Ministries – Yvonne Raper, Chairperson
Outreach Ministries seeks to encourage and challenge the church to reach out beyond its own self, into the community and the world around the church. We are in a covenant relationship with a UMC World Missionary program as we are supporting the work of Herbert and Mary Zigbuo in Liberia. We also support local mission initatives such as Coordinated Charities, the Good Faith Clinic, Women at the Well, Full Circle Womens Center, the Tri County Center, and Miracle Lake. In addition, the church maintains a Food Pantry. We also host the McMinn County American Cancer Society Chapter and have significant leadership in the annual ACS Relay for Life in McMinn County.
Witness Ministries – Michael Bryant, Chairperson
The Witness/Evangelism area is spiritually guided to share in the outreach and witness of the church and to the spiritual and personal needs of others. Its purpose will be to encourage others to understand the unique roll that each person is given in the Body of Christ therefore, allowing God to deepen their faith and equip them to share their faith with others. One of our projects is to “mug” first-time visitors by giving them an Allen Memorial mug.
