Missions

I did not come to be served but to serve

- Matthew 20:28

Mission is fundamental to who we are as Christians. Jesus taught us that to love God is to love our neighbor; that neighbor may be in our community, in our area of the country, or halfway around the world.  At Midway, we seek to make an impact on the world around us by utilizing the unique gifts he gave to each of us. We're thrilled that some of our ongoing mission partners are finding creative ways to operate safely in the midst of COVID-19. 

Back-to-School Supply Drive for Midway Elementary

Midway UMC is hosting a back-to-school supply drive for teachers at Midway Elementary. Teachers often spend their own money purchasing school supplies for children who don't have enough, so we've asked the school for a wish list so we can help. 

Simply click the button below and indicate how many of that item you'll bring. There are multiple sign-up opportunities for each item (no, you're not on the hook for ALL the the quantity listed!).

Bring your donations anytime BY END OF DAY JULY 31 to the collection bin under the covered entrance of Midway UMC - 5025 Atlanta Hwy in Alpharetta (corner of Hwy 9 & Campground Rd).  Share in your n'hood, social circles, sports teams, book clubs, small groups...to maximize impact and share the opportunity to make a difference. 

Methodist Church Cambodia

Our missionary partner in Cambodia, Rev. Andrew Lee, continues to work collaboratively, caring for orphaned and poor children, victims of human trafficking, raising women up to be community leaders, and advancing community health and agriculture efforts.  

Midway has plans to support these efforts with a fact-finding mission trip in early 2023. Please take a few minutes to watch this video, a personal message from Andrew Lee to the people of Midway UMC.

For more information on Midway's mission to Cambodia or on the UMC's efforts there, contact the church office at 770.475.5230 or Mission Coordinator Allen Bachrach

Meals By Grace

This non-profit organization operates its home-delivery food program out of Midway UMC every single Sunday of the year. More than 70 food-insecure families with children in Forsyth County are provided with enough food to last a week. During COVID-19, extensive logistical plans were enacted to help ensure safety of our volunteers and those we serve, even as the number of families served skyrocketed. 

Wellspring Living

Midway is proud to be growing our partnership with Wellspring Living, a widely-respected organization serving young women who have been victimized by sex trafficking. Click below to view a video about Wellspring’s success.
