Where to Serve
We at First United Methodist Church believe it's essential to find ways to serve Christ through acts of mercy. We want to take an active part in building up the Kingdom of God in our church, community, nation and world. Below are just a few examples of where you can serve in ministry.
Chow (Church on Wednesday) our midweek meal for the community and our church family. Serving begins at 5 pm and continues until 6 pm. All attending ChOW are invited to participate in Wednesday evening activities at the church, which include, choir, bell choir, bible study and the children's program COOL Kids.
Meal Preparation: we serve and hose grieving families after funerals.
Service Projects and Mission Trips: Our church is constantly engaged with our community and beyond. If you have an interest in mission please contact Chris Komorech
Volunteer to be a Leader on our Children or Student Ministry Teams. (Must be willing to participate in Safe Sanctuary Training)
Prison Ministry: The Methodist Church leads Prison Fellowship on a rotating basis on Tuesdays at 6:30pm. Contact Steph in the Church Office for additional information.
Opportunities to serve are everywhere and as a church we want to encourage you as you look for ways to deepen your spirituality through service. If you have an idea for a ministry or have an idea not listed here please contact Chris Komorech and we can work together to discern if the ministry you envision can take root at FUMC.
Opportunities to Serve in Worship
Greeters: Greeters serve on a rotating basis and welcome folks into the service. They are the smiling face and warm handshake which welcomes folks into our community.
Chancel Choir: This choir provides the anthem during the Traditional Sunday service. Anyone high school age and older is welcome. Practices are Wednesday's at 7 pm in the Choir Room, 3rd floor. (Sep - May)
Audio Visual Coordinators: Audio and Visual Coordinators serve by running the sound or video for services and ensure that our church service runs as smoothly as possible.
Van Drivers: We have several folks who would not be able to attend worship if it were not for those willing to drive the vans that bring them on Sunday Mornings. We are always looking for folks who can share in this minstry and be a blessing to those unable to drive for themselves.
