Outreach is the way we live out our faith through our actions. University Heights has had long-standing relationship with several ministries in the metro Atlanta area and is always looking for new ways to serve our community. Below you will see some of the missions with which we are currently serving.
Sarah's Pantry is an opportunity to reach out to those in need in our area as we are out in the community by providing food and hygeine kits to meet emergency needs. You can volunteer by bringing supplies for the pantry or by picking up food and/or hygeine bags following worship to keep with you in you car. If you have a story about sharing with our neighbors in need, we would love to hear them! Please send us an email.
