Ministries

Ministries are expressions of faith that primarily serve our church family. Check out the ministries below and find a place to plug in!

Alpharetta Methodist cares about the health and well-being of members of our church and community. Congregational Care ministries provide help when life becomes difficult, when you are going through a crisis or when you just need someone to listen.

“Praise God…with the sounding of the trumpet, praise him with the harp and lyre, praise him with timbrel and dancing, praise him with the strings and pipe, praise him with the clash of cymbals, praise him with resounding cymbals.” (Psalm 150:1-5)

We believe in praising God through music!
