The mission and ministries of New Liberty United Methodist Church are split into three areas, which allows for members a handful of ways in which they can become involved in the life and ministry of the church.
New Liberty offers a Women’s Bible Study that meets from the fall through late spring. Past Bible Studies have included going through the Letter of James and following Beth Moore’s Study on Spiritual Gifts.
One can also attend Sunday School at 9:45 AM for another way of engaging with God and scripture. Oftentimes Sunday School is paired with going through a book written by a Christian author and asking the big questions of the authors. How does this relate to our understandings of God? Where is the pushback? Why grace?
Our children’s ministry has weekly opportunities to be involved for children ages 8-12. From 5 P.M. to 6:30 P.M., our children’s ministry meets for “Spark Sunday” with our Children’s director. It is here that the first three weeks out of every month are devoted to games and messages made for children.
The fourth Sunday of each month is set aside for our New Liberty Church potluck. This potluck takes place right after church. People are invited to bring whatever dish they would like to share but they do not need to bring a dish to attend!
The second area in which people can become involved at New Liberty UMC is through our mission and service opportunities. iServe Ministries is a local organization that we partner with each month for service opportunities. On the second Saturday of each month, we meet in Commerce, GA to help with their mobile food pantry from 7:00 AM to 9:30 AM.
Each year, we attempt to participate in either a local or foreign mission trip. Some of our previous trips have included repairing homes hit by hurricanes and traveling to a children’s home in Nicaragua.
Meals on Wheels is an outside organization that some of our members partner with once or twice a month to deliver food to individuals in need. You can find more information about Meals on Wheels here: https://www.mealsonwheelsamerica.org.
The Braselton Yarners is a local group of women who meet at New Liberty UMC every Tuesday from 12-2 to knit, loom, crochet, and more! The garments they make are then given to organizations that support children in need.
The Caster’s Men’s Group is New Liberty UMC’s men’s group. The Caster’s meets monthly and also engages in their own mission efforts in the community.
The United Methodist Women (UMW) is New Liberty’s women’s group. The UMW engages in its own mission efforts in our community.
