The JOY motto at Wesleyan is the source of our identity in service. In service, we focus on Others and Omicron. From the Greek letter O, Omicron is an open society inviting the entire Wesleyan family to serve others gladly.

In light of the example of Jesus Christ, the mission of the Omicron Service Society is to encourage discipleship through the practice of service.

Advance our knowledge of God and His creation. 

Cultivate dignity in the people we are serving. 

Communicate and incarnate the gospel.  

Address real needs in a dynamic and mutually beneficial way.  

High School

The omicron service society participates in both regular and occasional service opportunities locally and in Atlanta.

Wesleyan School partners with Lazarus Ministries, the Atlanta Mission, and Trinity Anglican Mission each year to provide an amazing day of service to the homeless and needy of Atlanta. Lazarus Health day offers a variety of services to attendees, from medical and dental care to haircuts, new socks, resume preparation and more. Each year, about 600 volunteers serve on this great day. Wesleyan has been a part of Lazarus Health Day by aiding in transportation for attendees and by volunteering at several booths. Faculty from Wesleyan drive our school buses to help with transportation, and high school students serve in the booths.

Team Omicron

Team Omicron is the High School Service Team

Members serve 3 or 4 times a week during the winter season

Many service opportunities offered by the Omicron Service Society are once a year events. Team Omicron provides a different opportunity. Students who join Team Omicron serve 3-4 times a week from November to January. Team members return weekly to familiar faces and learn more about the ongoing needs of both people and agencies through their committed service.  
Visiting Church on the Street and learning the names and stories of new friends who happen to be homeless, or tutoring refugee children in Clarkston through Friends of Refugees allow team members to invest deeper and experience more. 
Team Omicron also learns service leadership through planning school-wide and high school service events. Team members get to shape their experience and lead their peers while learning great project management skills through the events they plan.
