The United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR), a ministry of the United Methodist Church, is dedicated to alleviating human suffering around the globe. UMCOR’s work reaches people in more than 80 countries, including the U.S., providing humanitarian relief to communities unable to recover on their own from war, conflict, or natural disaster. UMCOR’s goal is to assist the most vulnerable persons affected by crisis or chronic need without regard to their race, religion, gender, or sexual orientation.
Through our annual apportionments, as well as designated giving of our United Methodist Women chapter, Macedonia supports the mission of UMCOR financially and through various projects for the Methodist Home for Children, the ZOE Ministry, and others.
Appalachia Service Project (ASP) is a Christian ministry, open to all people, that inspires hope and service through volunteer home repair in Central Appalachia. Founded in 1969, this year-round service outreach offers volunteers age 14 through retirement the opportunity to make homes warmer, safer, and drier for needy families in regions of Kentucky, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia. Macedonia’s ASP mission team members have been transformed through loving, hands-on service and the relationships they have established with fellow volunteers, families served, and ASP staff.
