What is Aldersgate in Mission?

Aldersgate in Mission (AiM) is a new initiative of Aldersgate United Methodist Church. AiM is meant to build upon the great work that we are already doing. Twice per year we will gather on a Saturday morning for a brief time of devotion before we go and serve our community in a variety of ways. There will be opportunities for persons of all ages to be involved.

When?

Our first AiM event is Saturday, October 13, 8:30-12:00.

What does the day look like?

Volunteers will meet at Aldersgate at 8:30a.m. Pastor Chris will speak and pray over participants. Volunteers will then meet with their leaders for final instructions before leaving for their specific locations.

How can I participate or sign up?

Volunteers and donations are needed! You can sign up at: AldersgateLife.com/AiM, by texting AiM2018 to 816.744.3338, at the table in the lobby, on your Connect Card, or by calling the office.
