Involvement and support of missions is a keynote of Deermeadows. Mission opportunities are offered for all age groups. Deermeadows serves local ministries and organizations in Jacksonville such as Habijax, Daniel, City Rescue Mission, local apartment ministries, and more. A team of adults mentor elementary students needing some extra time and attention at a local school. The church has also partnered to help transplant patients who are temporarily living in Jacksonville for medical treatment.

English as a Second Language
Deermeadows reaches out to the international community right here in the Baymeadows/Southside area through the English-as-a-Second-Language program (ESL). Throughout the school year, hundreds of people participate in the free classes offering English instruction at five different levels. Volunteers give of their time and love to lead these classes, provide snacks and administer the program. More volunteers are always welcome. Contact Susan to get involved.
Classes are held Wednesday mornings from 9:30 AM-Noon and Thursday evenings from 6:30-8:30 PM during the school year.
