Missions at Fellowship Church
Fellowship Presbyterian Church Partners with Marion Medical Mission’s Shallow Well Project to build six shallow wells in Tanzania and Malawi in 2020.
In addition to international projects, the Fellowship Presbyterian MISSIONS MINISTRY serves hundreds of the most needy in our local community.
The flagship program is our Bread Ministry. We gather generous amounts of baked goods from local grocery stores twice a week and deliver to the regenerative agencies in the surrounding area. Our outreach touches the most vulnerable people in Pickens and Gilmer Counties. Our Bread Ministry gives us a deep insight into these agencies and allows us to be of service in many other ways.
Local agencies supported through donations and volunteer service:
- Timothy House
- Ruth House
- Hope House
- Isaiah House (Ellijay)
- Promised Land (Ellijay)
- Joy House
Community Service Agencies:
- Boys’ & Girls’ Club

Our Missions Ministry supports a number of global organizations spreading the Word of God.
