Join us for Summer of Service! Children, youth, adult members and friends of First Methodist have the opportunity to share the love, grace and good news of Jesus Christ by volunteering with local service agencies. We would love for you to join a group or select a date for yourself/family/Sunday School class/D-Group/Small Group to tackle a project.
By taking our love for God and turning it outward to love others, we will change the world around us. No matter your age, experience or talents, God wants to work through you to do small things with great love that will change the world.
