Serve

“The greatest among you will be your servant.”- Matthew 23:11

There are many opportunities to serve at Athens First United Methodist Church, both within the church, our community, and the greater world. Below you will find upcoming opportunities within various programs and ministries along with links to learn more about additional service opportunities within that area.

Missions

Our mission statement is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. We are called to be the hands and feet of Christ as we empower God's people to love God's people. At Athens First United Methodist Church we have many opportunities to serve the Lord. If you have any questions, or if you would like to discuss how God is personally calling you to serve, please email or contact Betsy Butler to schedule an appointment

Children's Ministry

Adults are invited to shape the hearts of children by volunteering on Sunday mornings with children from nursery age through grade 6. Children discover that Jesus loves them through the adults who serve with them. If you are called to make a difference and help make disciples of Christ, consider serving as a teacher or a shepherd. You may serve weekly or monthly in a variety of scenarios. Teams are forming for August and beyond: let us help you find your place.

Worship

Ms. Janis looks forward to having first graders help her on the pipe organ on Sundays during the 11:00 a.m. worship service! Please sign up by Monday, prior to the Sunday of your choice. Remember to come to the organ in the Sanctuary between 6:00-6:30 p.m. on the Wednesday evening before your Sunday. Ms. Janis will show your child exactly what to do. This will only take about 15 minutes. On Sunday morning, please report to the Sanctuary at 10:50 a.m. You may collect your child during the Passing of the Peace.

Student Ministry

Each Sunday morning we provide our youth with a breakfast snack. Usually a youth parent or leader will provide, but we would like to extend this invite to anyone that wants to sign up. No limitations on what to bring, we are grateful for any snack you want to provide! However, some suggestions are fruit trays, doughnuts, muffins, or other breakfast pastries. This is a wonderful opportunity to serve our youth.
