Since 1981, Good Works has been worshiping God by providing shelter and a Community of Hope for our neighbors struggling with poverty in Appalachian Ohio. Good Works is a Christ-centered, 501(c)3, non-profit organization. To learn more, visit Powell UMC has partnered with Good Works for several years and does several trips a year.
At this time we are supporting Good Works with our generosity as they raise funds for the only shelter in southern Ohio, Timothy House. Below is the video of Keith Wasserman sharing about this fundraiser,  A Day in a Life! For more info about a Day in a Life, click here.


Because of the pandemic, our trips to Good Works have been postponed. Below you will see some of the ways we usually support Good Works. As soon as we are able to go and serve, the dates will be posted for each opportunity. 
Serving Day at Good Works: Saturday, 8am-4pm. Watch for upcoming date! Come out on a spring day and serve with the neighbors affected by deep poverty in Athens County. Type of work will vary and depend on your skill: from raking the leaves, preparing a garden to visiting with people and sharing a conversation. Our work day will include lunch and it will cost $10.00 which will cover the food for the Good Works staff and volunteers.
