One of the most rewarding things you can do is volunteer at your church. In your membership vows, you pledged to support the church with your prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness. The Volunteer Ministry at First Methodist Houston provides an avenue for you to serve in love and help others while receiving a blessing to yourself and growing in your relationship with God.

Be a part! We want everyone to join us in serving God in the church and in the community. There’s a place for everyone!
