Foster Family Appreciation Dinner

Every year, DFCS hosts an appreciation dinner for about 100 foster families in Houston County. On Sunday, June 26th, we will partner with The Grove to host this dinner here at PUMC!

We will host a meal for all the parents in our Family Life Center, and have a separate meal and program for all the children in the Fellowship Hall. We will need lots of volunteers to help make this happen! Sign up here to volunteer!

We are also collecting $25 gift cards for gas, groceries, and restaurants to distribute to the foster families. These gift cards can be dropped off in the church office, in an envelope labeled for the Foster Family Appreciation Dinner.

Thank you so much for your support! Our church has been so good to me in my own fostering journey, and I am so excited for us to bless other foster families in our community!

Please email me if you have any questions at or call the church office.


Community Assistance Program

We have an Assistance program that helps those in our community with utliities, rent/mortage, and food.

We would love for your help with this program.   We will be collecting Kroger gift cards to help with this program.

Please mark the amount on each card and bring them to the church office during the week.  

If you have any questions, please email Katie here or call the church office at 478-987-1852. 


  • Brian Bowen snack sax

    This project provides 500 snack bags each weekend during the school year to children in K-3rd grade at Morningside and Tucker Elementary, who otherwise would have little to nothing to eat until they return to school on Monday.

    Volunteers purchase the food, package the sacks, and deliver the snack sacks each Friday to the schools. This ministry is funded primarily through designated gifts by individuals and groups inside and outside our church.

    For more information and to find out how you can be involved, contact Julie Davis.

  • casseroles for hospice families

    Perry UMC provides casserole meals each month for distribution by our local hospice to families under their care. This is a tremendous blessing to so many families who are overwhelmed with care for a loved one as death nears.  

    We accept homemade or store-bought meals, just make sure to include a label on the package! 

    For more information, contact Beverly Bowen or Kris Deloach.

  • family promise

    Family Promise of the Greater Houston County area is a nonprofit organization that seeks to help struggling families get back on their feet. They use a network of churches to house families for a week at a time, while the families are able to find jobs and save money. PUMC is a host church with this organization, and we always need many volunteers during our host weeks.

    For more information, contact Katie Cawthon.

  • operation christmas child

    Each fall our church is heavily involved in Operation Christmas Child, which is part of Samaritan's Purse International. In 2016, we collected 496 shoe boxes filled with essentials and gifts for underprivileged children. These boxes were delivered to children in the Philippines, Angola, and two undisclosed locations (they are considered hard to reach areas spiritually, and were not disclosed for the protection of the missionaries in those places). Each child also receives a booklet, written in their home language, telling them about Jesus Christ.

    For more information, visit the Samaritan's Purse website.

    If you would like to find out how you can be involved, contact Kathy Cawthon.
