Mission Committee Risk-Taking Missions and Service

Missions are an on-going ever changing service. The following is an attempt to share some of the work being done right now. These services will continue to change as the needs of our community change. Volunteers are always needed. Please, if you feel you are being lead to work in a particular area, the contact person is always open for help.


Children’s Missions – Contact Theresa Hobbs

The children's ministry does the shoebox ministry at Christmas: Operation Christmas Child.  We also do Vacation Bible School every June.


Young Adult Missions – Lora & Larry Morgan; Clyde Newman

Smart Lunch/Smart Kids – Contact Jean Dodson or Lucia Fletcher


ACTION MINISTRIES– SMART LUNCH SMART KIDS One new requirement from Action Ministries; if you are delivering meals  and/or having contact with the kids, you must have a background check done by Action Ministries. See link at the botton of page.   


 If you are just making lunches and will not have contact with the kids or will not be delivering meals, you do not have to do the background check. Our immediate needs: volunteers, monetary donations, individual bags of chips, fruit cups, grape jelly, and water bottles.



Let’s Wrap – Contact Pam Browning or Susanne Earnhart

The Let’s Wrap coat project is the primary initiative of the Community Involvement Committee at Jackson United Methodist Church.  The Committee was formed in May of 2008.  It is Co-Chaired by Susanne Earnhart and Pam Browning.  Let’s Wrap is a program where much needed coats are provided to children in the Butts County school system from Pre-K through the 5th grades.  It also includes children in the McIntosh Trail Head Start program.  With the help of volunteers, donations and grants we have been able to provide coats to all children in need as of this date.


The school system identifies those children that would benefit from new coats and gloves and gives us the names, gender and sizes so that we can purchase the coats.  We try to make this a special experience for those children that participate.  The school system allows us to set up a Let’s Wrap Store in each of the three schools.  The coats are displayed by boy or girl and size on clothes racks and the children are allowed to come and shop. 


“Community Involvement” means that we could not continue with this program without help from volunteers and ongoing donations from individuals, church and civic groups, and foundations.  This is an ongoing mission effort and cannot be completed without donations being made to the program throughout the year.  We try to have our children identified and coats purchased and distributed by the end of October or first of November at the beginning of each school year.  We started in 2008 with about 8 volunteers and this year we had between 15 and 20 volunteers from the community to help organize, purchase coats and work in the “store”.


School Needs – Contact Sherry Reynolds

Our congregation is involved with the Butts County School System to help whenever needed. During the summer we collect designated school supplies. One Saturday is chosen right before school starts to meet with other churches and county organizations. As children come, they are given a new back pack and we fill the packs with the donated supplies. 


We also collect individually packaged food items to donate to the “Back Pack Weekend Food” program. The county social worker became aware of several students who had nothing to eat during the days away from school. Our donations are discretely placed in the back packs on Friday afternoons so these children will have food they are able to open and use during the weekends and long holidays.


We continue to keep in contact with the school social worker (Susan Sarsany) to learn of new school needs we may be able to meet.


Men's Club – Contact Charles Polk or Bob Kaylor
