Ministry Programs

CARE MINISTRY

The Care Ministry is an expansion of Lay Visitation which reaches out to all members with the love and compassion of Jesus Christ. The Sick and Shut-in will continue to be top priority. The Mission of the Care Ministry is to connect with the total membership and stay connected. This committee does not take the place of any functioning committees in the church.

The purpose of the Care Ministry is to make certain no member falls through the cracks and to show our members that we are concern and we care. As we connect with members, their concerns outside the scope of the Care Ministry will be passed on to Pastor. The Care Ministry meets monthly or as deemed necessary.

PAMELA HOLDEN SCHOLARSHIP FUND

The Pamela Y. Holden Scholarship Fund was established in 1988 in memory of a beloved young adult member of Southlawn. The purpose of the scholarship fund is to provide financial assistance to young Christian African American students who are pursuing a baccalaureate degree from a college or university.

PRAYER WARRIORS

Prayer Warriors meet twice a month, at 12:00 noon. We continue to pray daily for our church members and leaders. We also pray for special needs and concerns in our church and community. We are still praying for Southlawn to reach its potential together in body and in spirit. We are also praying for more members to join our prayer group.

Our goal is to get the whole church involved in prayer. Ministry scripture: 2nd Chronicles 7:14 and ministry theme song is: “I don’t mind waiting”.

UNITED METHODIST MEN
The United Methodist Men meet on the Third Sunday of each month after the 10:00 am worship service. The United Methodist Men shall be a creative, supportive fellowship of men who seek to know Jesus Christ, to grow spiritually and to seek daily His will. One of our main focuses is our youth. We sponsored our first "Youth Talent Program" in 2013. We also sponsor our Annual Men's Day in October. All men are welcome to join. Bernard Brantley, President/Richard Griffiths, Vice President.

UNITED METHODIST WOMEN

The United Methodist Women meet on the third Sunday of the month after the 10:00 am worship service. The ministry circles of the Unit set their own meeting times and include such circles as quilting, girl's mentoring group, food and collection of clothing for needy and much more. All women are invited to join. We will feature our Annual Women’s Day, this year, in September, where we honor outstanding women of the Unit. Evette Bradley, President, Linda Lovelace, Vice President.

SOUTHLAWN GRIEF MINISTRY

The Grief Ministry is a healing, scripture based ministry for those who have suffered the lost of a loved one and are in need of a safe place to grieve, to remember, to share; A safe harbor where you can cry, laugh, be encouraged and given hope. A place where no matter how long it has been, no one will say to you that you should be over “it” by now and you just need to move on. The mission of the Grief Ministry is to share your burden, help ease the pain and put you on the road to healing, peace and joy again. The Grief Ministry is open to everyone.
