The local United Methodist church is a critical part of the services we offer, and UMCH counts on the generosity of the churches for a large portion of our budget. Children’s Home Representatives provide an invaluable service to the Children’s Home, as they are the lines of communication between UMCH and the churches.
The rep encourages and supports the church during the Work Day Offering and also makes the church congregation aware of specific needs, such as items for the youth, special projects and volunteers. The Children’s Home provides reps with the tools and information they need in order to represent the Home accurately and effectively to their congregation.
When I hear the needs of the children, I have a passion for doing something to help them. I get a huge kick when I see a luncheon that raises a lot of money or a big Work Day Offering, but as far as why I’m a Rep, it’s because of helping the kids.
-Harland Mathews, Children’s Home Rep for Kennesaw UMC
UMCH has become a passion for me, and I want to continue to do whatever I can to help the children being served here. My association with UMCH has definitely made my life richer.
