We serve because of what God has done for us, we offer our lives back to God through a life of service. As disciples, we become active participants in God’s activity in the world through mission and service. Love of God is always linked to love of neighbor and a passionate commitment to seeking justice and renewal in the world.
We have several different ways you can get involved and connected at First Methodist, but whatever you decide to do make sure you do it with the love of Christ and for His glory.

JOURNEY KIDS TEAM:
If you have been around First Methodist Church for any sort of time you know that we have a lot of babies and children! We love that, children are a blessing from the Lord and God has given us much to be responsible for. There are a couple ways to serve:
Nursery on Sundays and Wednesdays
God Squad on Sundays
Journey kids on Wednesday nights
JOURNEY YOUTH TEAM:
If you have ever been to First Methodist Church on a Wednesday night you will not be able to miss the youth that are in the building. Our youth are apart of the future of the church and the world. They need our prayers and support for this season they are experiencing in their life. You can support them in several ways:
Lead a small group
Go on youth trips
Pick up youth after school/play sports or games with them on Wednesdays
Be a mentor
MAINTENANCE/ DESIGN TEAM:
Are you a handy man? Can you swing a hammer and fix anything? Or do you just wanna serve? This is the team for you. This team is also for the ones that love decorating or giving a room a makeover. These people do everything from yard maintenance, to painting classrooms. With an aging building this is a vital team!
Are you a prayer warrior? Do you feel closest to God when you are praying? We need people to meet each week to pray for our church, our community, our school district, our college, the sick and hurting, and for the people that have never experienced the love and grace of God.
