Local Outreach

Outreach to others is one of the most vital components of our faith. We are passionate about making our local and global communities a better place for all. By serving others, we feel the transformative power of our beliefs and see the positive change that it brings to the world. As we continue our work of empowering people and building sustainable programs, we see a light and a renewed resolution in those we touch. The greatest things happen when we listen to God’s call, open our hearts wide, and serve.

If you would like to be a part of Local Outreach, please contact Beth Spencer at beths@prumc.org or 404-240-8234.  To learn more about our local agency partners, click here.

Hopeworks Local Outreach
Habitat for Humanity

PRUMC and Habitat believe that every person should have access to a decent, safe and affordable place to live. Because of that belief, we team up each year to build homes for hard working families. Our strong partnership with Habitat is founded on their mission of sustainability. Each recipient of a Habitat Home works by our side to build the home. They also attend required home ownership education classes on maintenance, budgeting and more. Because of this type of “hand up” outreach, we are building better communities that last.

Typical Schedule:

Day 1     Install walls, deck, columns, and beams.
Day 2     Install trusses and doors. Build side porch and stairs. Begin siding.
Day 3     Deck and felt roof. Install framing. Continue siding.
Day 4     Shingle, insulate. Finish siding and caulking. Install porch railings. Paint.
