Here is more information about the Missions that we support here at Sandersville UMC.
Every month on Communion Sunday we take up a special offering that is designated for the SUMC Altar Fund. Donations may be given to this fund at any time. This fund is used to help the needy here in our community. DFACS helps us conduct a prescreening for clients, and then they refer them to us. This fund helps pay house payments, rent or utility bills of those in need. The Pastor is the director of this fund. Anyone seeking assistance from this fund must go to Washington County DFACS office. All information will be kept confidential.
This fund is available for members of our congregation. Donations can be made to this fund at any time. This fund is used to help the needy in our congregation. It is used to help pay house payments, rent or utilities. The Sandersville United Methodist Men are in charge of this fund. Contact the Church office if you need assistance from this fund and you are a member of our congregation. All information will be kept confidential.
