PRUMC sends over 100 members on global mission trips each year.  We build homes, give love to children, create self-sustaining projects and share the love of Christ.  Each year promises to bring even more opportunities and meaningful mission trips to our church.  Great things happen when we listen to God’s call and have a heart to serve.  Whether you are contemplating a mission trip for the first time, or are a veteran trip participant, we know we can all make a difference together.  Make missions your next step to experiencing God in a whole new way.  For more information, contact Anne French, Director of PRUMC Global Missions at 404.240.8205 or annef@prumc.org.

Sponsor a Child in Georgia

Sponsor a Child

Georgia to Georgia Sponsor a Child
March 13 and 20, Grace Hall
Mark your calendars for March 13 & 20 for our Sponsor a Child event in Grace Hall.  This annual event allows you the opportunity to choose from over 300+ children that we support at three institutional schools in the country of Georgia.

For nearly 17 years, this PRUMC program and mission teams have been in the very poorest, rural areas of this country providing basic daily essentials to hundreds of children.  Warm winter coats for unheated schools and homes, boots for muddy unpaved roads, nutritional meals which for many is their only meal of the day, medical examinations, medicines ~ something as simple as a toothbrush, and so much more.

On these two Sundays, you will actually see the child you may want to sponsor, hear their story, and learn more about their school, country, traditions, and strong faith.  You will also have the opportunity to meet with members of the PRUMC Georgia team who will share their story about past experiences, our future vision and how your sponsoring a child will make a difference.

For more information on Sponsor a Child or our May & October one week trips to Georgia, please contact Lynn Banks at lynnsbanks@mindspring.com.
