Wow! 2020! What a year of firsts and a year of new perspectives. 

We have had and continue to have the opportunity to reflect and

rediscover what we already know:

 

-       Knowing we are better when we all work together.

-       Knowing everyone deserves a seat at the table.

-       Knowing everyone has a story to tell.

-       Knowing everyone has equal value in the eyes of God.

-       Knowing to seek a balance in our lives to include respite.

-       Knowing each day is a gift and everyday a miracle given to us by our Lord and Savior.

 

With your support and prayers, we continue to serve people on the margins, be it as always, virtually, by phone, curbside, and/or delivery. We are grateful for each of you. 

 

We continue lifting you in prayer for decisions made at this conference, and for your health and safety.

 

Thank you!

 

Higher Education

Locations in Memphis, Tulsa, Colorado Springs, Kentucky, Orlando and online allow students to pursue their degrees in a residential, cohort or online class.

UMCommission

Even in the uncertainty of this upcoming fall semester, the UM Commission is committed to working within all accessible lanes to support our campus ministries and colleges. College is
a unique crossroads for people of all walks of life, and we cherish the opportunity to disciple them before they are launched into the world. It’s for that reason we see the work of campus
ministry as essential to growing the Kingdom of God today.

 

The best way to know this impact is to hear from the very people who have experienced it. Here are just a few alumni of the Wesley Foundations and colleges in Georgia sharing their stories,
and how these institutions shaped their lives.

Foundry Creative Group

Remember when “good” was good enough? Us too. Seems not too long ago a website only needed a directory and an address to help people find your church. Nowadays, you have to have videos, photo sliders, and cool effects on when you move your cursor over an icon. Also, your website now has to shape-shift its dimensions anytime someone visits it on a mobile device.


At the Foundry, we’ve heard these frustrations a plenty, but we want to make things better. Because college students spend at least half of their lives through their phones and laptops, most of our staff had been learning how to make things better in digital media long
before the pandemic struck. They have the tools and know-how to help your ministry improve its digital presence, wherever it feels the need to get better. We are more than happy to come along and help, and also do it at a price point that won’t rock your budget.

 

General Agencies

General Board of Church & Society

 

Since its founding, the United Methodist Church has spoken to the issues of the day as an expression of the Wesleyan commitment to social holiness. The 2020 revised Social Principles continues this tradition.

 

After an eight year journey and a deeply United Methodist experience of revision, the General Conference is called to approve a document with a strong theological grounding and a more focused, succinct, and globally meaningful form.

 

Church and Society stewarded the revision process, creating a teachable document that the whole church can use.
