Our Ministries

Ways for you to serve on your journey following Jesus

Getting Started

If you are interested in joining us as a ministry volunteer, please fill out the form below. We will get back to you as soon as possible.

Be Baptized!

Baptism is an outward expression of an inward change. It’s a public declaration of how Jesus changed your life. Being baptized shows others that you’re dedicated to follow Jesus, and allows them to celebrate this decision with you. We celebrate baptisms at several Sunday services throughout the year. Email or talk to one of the pastors to learn more about baptism.

Worship is a big deal for us at First Methodist Church. When we gather as God’s people we want to lift high the name of Jesus through song, sermon and sacraments. There are many areas that you can get involved in this area:

Wonderful

Wednesday Night Dinner

Wonderful Wednesday Night Dinner is all about serving our friends and neighbor a wholesome meal. We feel that each meal has that special taste you might experience on a campout with your family. For some reason the food just taste better. We are not professional cooks so there is a lot to chance as we prepare each week. We think we have a special advantage because we use a special ingredient called Love. We hope and pray the everyone that attends WWND will taste and experience the Love of Christ as they fellowship with one another. We serve by donation only so people can contribute what they can and no one is left out. God always blesses us with ample supplies. If you have not experienced WWND we invite you to be our guest and feel the warmth of the Love of Christ as you fellowship and enjoy a hot meal.

 

Every Weds from 5pm – 6pm in the Fellowship Hall

Do you enjoy singing? Do you have experience singing in a choir, or want to learn to read music and sing chorally? We would love to have you join the choir here at FUMC.

*Due to COVID-19, rehearsals for chancel choir will not begin until further notice. Until then, we will continue to participate in the 11:00 worship service with small ensembles and solos. Although we love to sing and serve in the worship service, we feel it prudent to wait until we know more about the virus and how it spreads. Thank you for understanding.
