COMMUNITY

ENGAGEMENT

What Is community engagement?

Community Engagement encompasses the Local Outreach and Common Ground Network (Fresh Expressions) at Mount Pisgah. Local Outreach puts hands and feet on what it means to Love God, and Love People. Our mission reminds those in need, through tangible and spiritual support, that God cares for them. Through local outreach, we meet people where they are, just as they are and put a face on the God who loves them unconditionally.

first serve

First Serve is an opportunity to participate with a project or "Act of Kindness" in our community and/or with a local partner the first week of each month.

Engagement of the month

Every month, Mount Pisgah helps to support one of our many community partners by donations of goods. Find out what the focus is this month, and see how you can be a part!

All Serve

local outreach partners:

Emergency Response Team

The Mount Pisgah Disaster Response Team is trained, equipped, and ready to respond when disaster hits our area. To learn how you can be part of the Mount Pisgah Disaster Response Team, email Brett Ray at bray@mountpisgah.org

Every Woman Works

EWW is a non-profit learning center providing a safe, therapeutic, and supportive environment for homeless women recovering from alcohol and drug dependency, in a transition from the penal systems, recovering from domestic violence, or living in poverty. EWW gives these women an opportunity to develop financial independence and solid and transferable work skills to strengthen their sense of self-confidence. For more information on how you can assist these women, email the Local Outreach Ministry or view the Every Woman Works website.

Habitat for Humanity

Each year Mount Pisgah joins with other churches and community partners to build a home for a deserving family through Habitat for Humanity. This year we will build our 28th house for a deserving, low-income family that has never had the blessing of owning their own home. The 2020 Ecumenical Build is on hold due to COVID and will likely begin this winter. To volunteer or to learn more about Mt. Pisgah’s Habitat for Humanity ministry contact Jim Wilson (jwduluth1@bellsouth.net) or Cindi Smith (cle_smith@bellsouth.net).

HomeStretch

HomeStretch gives homeless parents and their children a safe and comfortable place to live while simultaneously helping them address the root causes of their situation and return to a life of self-reliance and stability. When they graduate from HomeStretch, the families have a strong grasp on their finances, have reduced insurmountable debt and have accumulated savings. Many have even increased their income through job skills training and improved employment. They are always looking for family and budget mentors as well as many other volunteer opportunities. For more information visit Homestretch.org

The Drake House

The Drake House is a crisis residential assessment center for homeless women and children in the North Fulton area providing immediate housing combined with an empowerment program designed to provide stability for the children and assist the family in working toward self sufficiency. Volunteer in the following areas: office, food pantry, tour/orientation for new residents, child care, special event assistant, donation coordinator, tutors and teachers for life skills classes. For more information, visit thedrakehouse.org.

North Fulton Community Charities

The NFCC mission is to build self-sufficiency and prevent homelessness and hunger in our community by providing emergency assistance and enrichment programs. Opportunities to serve include volunteering in the food pantry, the thrift store, or at the donor door for the thrift store. Annually Mount Pisgah participates in the Back-to-School supply drive, Coat Drive and Santa Shop while also collecting supplies for the pantry.
