Serving Christ in the World

Our Mission is Growing Disciples of Jesus Christ by Serving Christ in the World.

Our vision is to follow the calling of the Holy Spirit to serve the community where needs exist by serving others, providing food, clothing and spiritual fellowship.

We bring Christ’s love and joy to God’s people at SPSP, the Greater Atlanta community and where we find them at difficult moments in their lives.
 
We do this through:
  • Personal ministry as we encounter those we serve
  • Unselfish and unconditional giving of time, treasure and talent to meaningfully impact the lives we are called to touch
  • Teaching our children and youth how to serve others in the name of Christ
  • Episcopal partners like MUST Ministries, Family Promise, Hope For The Hungry
We are very thankful for our volunteers who contribute 3,500-4,000 service hours per year supporting the following ministries:
