MISSIONS IN THE CHURCH AND BEYOND
We are a community that reaches out to the world in witness and service. Like all United Methodists, our mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ, and to seek the fulfillment of God’s reign in the world. To that end, we support numerous local mission projects with both financial support and our time and energy. By our service and in the way we live our lives, we seek to witness to the transforming love of God in Jesus Christ.
First Church has several missions during the Christmas season.
Ebenzer Angels: Volunteers purchase gifts for children at Ebenezer Community Outreach. Information is available in November
Mitten Tree: Donations for winter accessories are welcomed on our mitten tree every year to ensure that members of the community are kept warm during the winter
Pecans: The United Methodist Women provide pecan halves and pieces by the pound
