Local Ministries

Local Ministries Supported by GUMC

Garner Area Ministries’ purpose is to serve as a central location for people who cannot afford to pay rent, utilities and/or prescription medications. Garner UMC supports GAM by collecting food, clothing and home goods for the thrift shop and food pantry. Watch the weekly bulletin for a list of current needs at GAM.

With Love From Jesus provides financial support, food, clothing, prayer and hope to those in need in the area. Volunteers are needed to process donations as well as work with clients in the store. For more information, visit the WLFJ website https://www.withlovefromjesus.org/support/ or contact a member of the Missions team.

School Outreach and The Giving Tree

The Missions Team delivered a "trunk full" of snacks to Creech Road Elementary School in March.



The Missions Team will be collecting snacks for Creech Road Elementary teachers and staff for Teacher Appreciation Week!

More than 160 gifts were collected for 40 children from Creech Road Elementary this year! Ornaments are placed on the tree indicating a child's need; outfit, shoes and a special toy. Once the gifts are returned to the church, volunteers wrap and sort the gifts before delivering them to the school for families to collect and give their children.

Each child's gifts are safely secured in a large bag before being loaded for delivery. No peeking allowed!
