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

More than 1 million children in Georgia schools receive free or reduced-price lunch, a crucial meal that disappears in the summer. Smart Lunch, Smart Kid ensures that these children are fed in the summer and on school breaks. You are invited to join us every Wednesday, beginning June 14, as we partner with Action Ministries to provide lunch to our neighborhood children. Two teams will be sent to two neighborhoods to play, encourage, and build relationships! We hope you will come and participate in this wonderful ministry as we serve our neighbors and transform Athens by sharing God’s love. Register online or contact Betsy.

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.

Recreation

Please consider volunteering to coach Children's Flag Football this fall 2017! Flag Football is for children in kindergarten through second grade, and is made up of coed teams. Children will learn the fundamentals of football while growing together in a fun and competitive Christian environment. Games and practices will be held at Chapelwood UMC. Please contact Rusty Wood if you are interested.

Music Ministry 

WYC Work Day

We are getting ready for the 2017-18 season and could use a little help in the music suite filing music and cleaning out folders! We will offer up a prayer for our Tijuana travelers, clean out folders and file music, and I will treat you to ice cream after we are done! This will occur on Monday, June 26 from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. in the Music Suite.

Let me know if you can attend!
