The participants in the Christian Men’s Fellowship represent the churches listed below, located in McIntosh and Glynn Counties. Currently, St. Andrew’s Episcopal, St. Cyprian’s Episcopal, Morgan’s Chapel Methodist, Fort Frederica Presbyterian, Emmanuel Methodist, St. Mark’s Episcopal and Church of LDS are involved. As many as 21 men and ladies from these churches have helped us build six (6) wheelchair ramps so far this year. Given the unusually high summer temperatures, we were blessed to have completed this many ramps.

Since June 2003, our group has completed wheelchair ramps and other home modifications, i.e., handrails and special stairs, for one hundred seventy-eight (178) citizens of Liberty, McIntosh and Glynn Counties through the end of August 2019.

It is our intention to continue to involve men from other churches in McIntosh and Glynn Counties and to build a strong, functioning ecumenical relationship while serving our community as Christ’s hands and feet. The bond of fellowship between all members of our group is deep and continues to grow with each project we complete. We meet on the third Saturday of each month for breakfast at B&Js Pizza for fellowship and to discuss pending projects.

In addition to participants from St. Andre’s and St. Cyprian’s Episcopal Churches, our group of regulars includes 3 participants from St. Mark’s Episcopal-Brunswick. Additionally, 3 brothers from Brunswick joined us along with Elders, Sisters and members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, Darien, GA. bringing much needed youth to augment our aging though, loyal participants. Some have been working with us for the entire sixteen-plus years.

Thankfully, other churches in our three county area have stepped up to provide accessibility for their communities and we are getting fewer qualified applicants. We have a good working relationship with L.I.F.E. This organization has been very proactive in qualifying applicants.
