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!
Serve on Sundays by interacting with the congregation by providing bulletins, assisting with seating, parking walkers and passing collection plates.

Volunteers take one day per week sending out the Healing and Caring Report about members who are in the hospital, in rehab or hospice. Orientation, training, and standby help are available. Depending on how many people are in the hospital and whether missing information must be tracked down, as well as your own work speed, the task takes anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour. Volunteer will be able to work from home and choose the day.

Spiritual Gift Assessment
Have you asked yourself what kind of gifts has God blessed me with to share? On the other hand, maybe you have noticed a gift but, you are not sure how to use your spiritual gifts. We encourage you to take the time to find out now. The two main purposes of spiritual gifts are to equip God’s people to do His work in and through us and to serve people.
