Communications

The Communications Committee's function is to spread information about news and events to the church congregation and the surrounding community.  This is implemented by using newspaper, radio, message boards, Facebook and the church's website among others.  Video monitors are used throughout the church and updated weekly to help bring  attention to events happening in the church.  The Buddy Network was formed to make immediate contact with church members in case of an emergency effecting the surrounding church geographical area.

I.T. (Information Technology) Ministry

Computer technician

Have an interest in computers and electronics?  Churches use computers and other electronic devices in every facet of their operation.  These items constantly need updates, maintenance, upgrades and repair.  It's a challenge and we can always use more technicians to help out.  If you have experience in computer/electronic repair and maintenance, and would like to assist our team, please contact the church office.

(Yes, we pray A LOT!)

Gardening Group

Do you have the desire to further your knowledge of plants? We have several "Master Gardeners" who facilitate  this group! Generally, the Gardening Group meets once a month (2nd Monday at 10am) for a guest speaker and light lunch. Occasionally, this  group hosts field trips throughout the year to visit local nurseries.  They welcome anyone who wishes to attend.

KAIROS Prison Ministry

Several times per year, we open our doors to KAIROS prison ministry so that they have a "home base" for this area.  They visit local prisons and talk to inmates about Jesus Christ hoping  to change their hearts and their minds. This program is run by  volunteers. Aldersgate is proud to offer assistance to this worthwhile ministry!

Sager Brown - UMCOR

Purpose of Sager Brown

    In 1992, Hurricane Andrew hit the coast of south Louisiana causing major damage to the area around Baldwin, La.  UMCOR came to the area with volunteers and supplies and used the old Sager Brown campus to stage their operations. After two years, UMCOR determined that the Sager Brown Campus would be an excellent location to build an UMCOR depot where disaster relief could be collected and provided to the world. The depot opened in 1996.

    

    The campus today is a living, working monument to over a century of United Methodist mission. UMCOR is a leader in service for the UMC to those who are hungry, displaced, sick or in poverty because of natural or human-made disasters. UMCOR serves in 81 countries of the world. Each year more that 3,000 volunteers come to USB to work in the UMCOR Depot or in service to the community of Baldwin, La., to help make a difference for people who are suffering.
