Community Outreach

  Community Outreach  
Wesley Way supports and serves various community service projects and agencies throughout Henry County including A Friend’s House, Haven House, Helping in His Name Ministries (The Food Pantry), and Samaritans Together.  A particular focus is placed on the following community outreach opportunities:
  • Wesley Way partners with Community Gardens of Henry County to provide a 31 bed community garden for area residents.  The site is home to a donation garden known as Helping Harvest cared for by church volunteers.  The fresh food from this garden helps provide hunger relief in the community.  The garden yields approximately 10,000 pounds of locally grown fresh vegetables annually which is harvested and delivered to local organizations that serve families in need.
  • Wesley Way supports "In His Name Food Pantry" by collecting food items each week and transporting these to the pantry facility in Stockbridge.  Members of the Local Outreach team also serve as volunteers for the pantry and it is a team site for River of Life and One Great Day of Service.  Each week, suggested food items are listed on a church bulletin insert if you wish to donate.  A collection container for dontated items can be found in the church lobby.
  • The Wesley Way Youth Ministry collects articles of clothing and blankets to distribute to our homeless brothers and sisters in the Atlanta area.  Gloves, scarves, hats, socks, are among the items in demand.  Donations are accepted for gently used items of this nature and can be delivered to the Senior High classroom upstairs.  We periodically travel within the metro Atlanta area to provide meals and the articles mentioned above to those in need.
  • Wesley Way sponsors the annual One Great Day of Service event that sends teams out into our community to provide service to individuals and organizations.  The event is typically supported by over 100 volunteers and works to provide needed assistance to the local food pantry, family shelter, community gardens, and other similar community causes.  Please join us in effort to make a positive difference in our community.
