Transitional Living Ministry

What is Transitional Living Ministry?  It is a new Mission Project under development by Jasper First United Methodist Church for the purpose of holistically helping a family get their feet on the ground by escaping the cycle of poverty and developing healthy life skills in order to become a productive part of our community. This ministry will be ongoing and could include mentoring a family for as much as 12 - 18 months.
 
Having identified a Vision, Mission Statement and a set of Strategic Objectives we are ready to enlist the help of our extended congregation by inviting them to select an objective from the list below in which to become involved.  Everyone of you have an area of life skills, knowledge and interest in one or more of the areas listed below.
 
If you want to know more and/or become a part of the planning and implementation of this ministry, the next meeting is Monday, October 23 at 6;30 PM in the Fellowship Hall.
 
 
Vision: Transforming our community one family at a time.
