SERVE locally & AROUND THE WORLD

Mission In a Mile MINISTRY PARTNERS

Alps Road Presbyterian is pleased to partner with several ministry agencies in our Athens community and around the world to help build the Kingdom of God.  We hope you'll choose a place to serve.

  

  • ST. MARY'S HOSPITAL

    Primary opportunities we partner with St. Mary's includes collecting and delivering small stuffed animals and books for pediatric patients.  We also supply food for the cart that delivers treats to overworked and tired hospital staff (especially during Covid).

  • ALPS ROAD ELEMENTARY & clarke middle SCHOOLs

    Both schools need tutors and mentors, both of which must undergo a background check.  Additionally, we provide volunteers and food for events like the Academic Carnival (we provide & run the cake walk), Teacher Appreciation events and for milestone testing.  At the beginning of the school year, we host a school supply, backpack & uniform drive for students at the school. 

  • WESLEY WOODS SENIOR LIVING

    In addition to special events like Christmas caroling, or providing trivia or bingo games, we help host the monthly birthday celebration for residents  whose birthday is that month.  Wesley provides a wonderful brunch and we provide the volunteers to serve and visit with birthday residents. 

  • iSERVE

    iServe Mobile Food Pantry is held in the Eastside Kroger parking lot on the 4th Saturday of every month in Athens.  Volunteers load boxes of food and spend time talking and praying with the neighbors who come looking for help. 

  • SPARROW'S NEST

    Sparrow's Nest  "...exists to save lives."  Their goal is to restore people back to their God given purpose and identity in Christ, and minister to those who may have been broken, beaten, abused, and stereotyped by the harshness of the world.  Regular volunteer opportunities include participating in the Keep Warm Project, create and deliver hygiene kits and volunteer in a variety of ways onsite.  To volunteer at Sparrow's Nest, please contact them at 706-549-6693


  • FAMILY PROMISE OF ATHENS

    We host up to 4 homeless families for a week each quarter.  Volunteer opportunities include overnight hosts, van drivers, dinner cooks and daytime hosts.  

SERVE REGIONALLY & INTERNATIONALLY

Join us in spreading the gospel to the ends of the Earth. 

  • OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD

    You can serve in 2 ways:  pack shoeboxes for children to receive tangible gifts that let them know Jesus sees them and knows them.  You may also volunteer at a Processing Center.  In 2021, we are volunteering at the Atlanta Processing Center on Thursday, December 2 and the Boone, NC Processing Center on Monday, December 6 and Tuesday, December 7.  Please sign up early and complete your waiver.  Make a reservation here

  • IGLESIA PRESBITERIANA, MATANZAS, CUBA

    We love to visit with our sister church in Cuba!  We send teams to Cuba every summer it's safe to do so, and look forward to adding a mid-year trip as well.  Groups that travel to Cuba are responsible for raising their own cost through group projects and individual fund raising.
