Get Involved

We are busy actively serving God in all sorts of different ways here at First Church!  We would love for you to join us at one of our upcoming special events.  To learn more, just scroll down to see some of the ways God is moving through us at First Church.  


Project AGAPE Christmas Boxes will be picked up here at First UMC on Tuesday, October 1st.  If you have Christmas Boxes that you have not been able to turn in by the due date, that’s okay…bring them by the church as soon as possible and we can still make sure they get to the Mission Response Center in time to go out.  For more information on how to help the people of Armenia through Project AGAPE, or to participate in our upcoming mission trip next Spring, please call Wanda Watts at (704) 857-3623.
