We share God's grace through service as part of our commitment to our discipleship process.  We serve through transformative mission ministries using our spiritual gifts, passions and skills and we serve in the life of First United Methodist Church.

Through transformative mission ministries, we strive to be a neighbor who is engaged in building trust-based relationships with all people as beloved children of God.  Members of our congregation serve in mission ministries locally, regionally and globally.  For guidance or support in this area, please contact Ron Swain, Director of Transformative Missions at

There are several areas in the life of our church where our personal gifts or talents can be used for the glory of God: in worship, through our hospitality ministry and in the office and communications ministry.
