Serve


Through serving, we use gifts and graces and resources to be a part of God’s plan for the world. Individuals serve in many ways in and through our Downtown community: as teachers, church leaders, landscapers, tutors and by feeding the hungry, building homes, caring for children.

A portion of every gift to our budget supports Serve partnerships, local and world wide.

 

Mission Funding

With God’s blessing, First Church has been able to support a variety of missions over the years. We know many worthy needs deserve financial support. Our congregation has many different interests and each parishioner may have personal interests as well. The Serve Team was created to examine the needs of our community and the interests of First Church, devise a process for applicants and develop guidelines for deciding how to distribute the generous, but limited, financial gifts from our congregation. While these may be evolving tasks, we hope that all those involved find it helpful.

If you are interested in applying for mission project funding please read through this letter from our Serve Team first. You will find links to applications below. Completed applications can be returned to serve@1stumc.org.
