Part of the DNA of Sugar Hill Church is to serve others outside the walls of our church building. A few years ago we asked the question, “If Sugar Hill Church were to cease to exist, would the community and the world know? Would they notice?”
Serving is a really big deal to us both in our community and around the world. Missions and serving isn’t about a program, it’s about people. As Christ followers we want to share His love through word and deed. We count it an honor to serve others in need and in His name.

For many years, Louie and Phyllis Grizzle have baked brownies to welcome new families into our community. Paul and Mandy Brown have taken over for the Grizzles to carry on their ministry. They work with the City of Sugar Hill to identify new families and deliver a box of their baked goodies to welcome them and invite them to Sugar Hill Church. Brownie Brigade members serve once a month by delivering the brownies to homes in our community.
Nursing Home Ministry
Refuge Coffee Company
Not only do our partners at Refuge make a great cup of coffee, but they also serve the greater Clarkston community through jobs, job training, social networking, and commerce. Every year the U.N. settles 2500 refugees in Clarkston, GA and we are honored to be able to partner with Refuge Coffee as they serve this diverse community.
Salt & Light Projects
Throughout the year we encourage our church to leave the church walls and serve at various projects in our community. Whether you can rake a senior adult’s yard, apply some fresh coats of paint at the North Gwinnett Co-op, or help change the oil of a single homeless mom’s car, there is a project for you!
The North Gwinnett Co-Op
The North Gwinnett Co-op is one of our greatest partnerships in serving our community. Throughout the year we collect canned goods, food, clothing, hygiene items and more to assist those living in our community needing assistance. The Co-op has ongoing opportunities for you and your family to come and serve by helping with food intake, packing bags for families, and sorting clothing donations for their store.

Christian Library International
Teach My People
Teach My People, provides academic assistance, character development, cultural and spiritual enrichment, and physical activity daily to children in the community of Pawley’s Island, SC. Each year they identify 10 first grade students who have been labeled by the school system as “at risk.” Teach My People commits to serve these students and their families all the way through the child’s senior year, and in many cases, beyond. Each April, our Student Ministry spends their Spring Break serving the families of Teach My People, and in June, our Students spend a day of their Summer Camp providing a block party for the families of Teach My People.

Care for Aids
Care for Aids serves 26 Kenyan churches helping them minister to those that are battling HIV and AIDS. So far, they have helped more than 5,000 families and have 2,000 families currently in the program. They have seen more than 1,200 professions of faith.
Through short term mission trips and financial support, we support a Nyalenda Baptist Church in Kisumu, Kenya. Because of our partnership, they are able to feed, train, equip and provides hope for 90 families each year.
Operation Christmas Child
Each October, we partner with Samaritans Purse for Operation Christmas Child. Our church helps with assembling, packing, and shipping shoeboxes to children around the world filled with Christmas items. Each year we pack and ship hundreds of shoeboxes. We also have the opportunity to serve at the Atlanta distribution area, where we secure the packages for travel around the world where they are distributed to children in need.
Compassion International releases children from poverty in Jesus’ name. Our church sponsors more than 225 children, primarily in the Dominican Republic and Haiti.
Our efforts in Haiti primarily are based around the Grace Children’s Home and the work that their local Pastor is overseeing with church plants throughout Haiti. A few times each year, we have the opportunity to travel to Haiti to share Christ’s love and hope with the children at and around Grace Children’s Home, as well as lead a Pastor’s Conference with close to 100 pastors from all throughout Haiti.
