In Our Jerusalem
There are many opportunities for you to become involved in local missions. Through Ocoee Outreach, Ocoee Resort Ministries, Project Helping Hands, and other Church & Community Ministry projects.
A ministry that reaches out to needy families in the Cleveland area through home repair. Each summer teams come from all over the Southern United States to do roofing, painting, building wheel chair ramps, and many other home repair projects. They also reach these families with the love of Jesus Christ. Local teams are needed to help. To learn more about Ocoee Outreach, you visit their website.
The above ministry uses salvation bracelets. If your church would like to make some of these bracelets it would be greatly appreciated. Call the office at 423-476-5493 for a pattern and materials list.

Project Helping Hands
Helps low income families who are struggling to make ends meet during the Thanksgiving and Christmas Holidays. Volunteers from our churches work various stations during the application process that includes sharing the Gospel and also making home visits to verify and discover needs. One of the beautiful things about PHH is the way it identifies families in need and connects them with churches, companies, groups or individuals who will come along side them to provide basic necessities and a little more. Call Lynda Davis at 423-641-1865 if you would like to help in this ministry.
