Jane Rogers Fund

The Jane Rogers Fund was created in memory of Jane, who faithfully served in missions at Alpharetta Methodist for many years. The fund provides educational scholarships for children and financial support for teachers and nurses in other countries. It’s also used to help church members cover travel expenses for their first international mission trips. Once our annual scholarships and salaries are donated this year, the fund will be almost depleted. If you would like to donate, please write Jane Rogers Fund on the memo line of your check to AFUMC. Thank you.

Volunteer as a Parking Attendant or Driver

The Parking Ministry assists in transporting people on the church campus during construction. Starting at 10:40 a.m. each Sunday morning, volunteers drive the church’s two extended golf carts, picking up folks in the Cumming Street parking lot and dropping them off at the Sanctuary. To volunteer as a golf cart driver, please click here.

We are also using the church bus to help senior citizens who attend the Cobb Sunday School class travel from the Methodist Youth Center (where their new classroom is located) to the Sanctuary for the 11 a.m. worship service. Pick up at the MYC is at 10:40 a.m. Following the worship service, class members ride the bus back to their vehicles in the MYC parking lot. If you will volunteer as a bus driver on Sundays, click here.

We appreciate your help in making Sunday mornings run smoothly during this exciting time for Alpharetta Methodist!

Disaster Relief Training

Our Disaster Relief Committee is creating an Early Response Team, certified under the United Methodist Committee on Relief and the United Methodist Volunteers in Mission. Certification will allow our team to have access to a relief site in the early relief stages following a disaster. Two classes are offered:

  • Base Early Response Team training prepares team members for what they will encounter when they reach a disaster site. Training will be offered April 21, 8:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m., at Alpharetta Methodist. The class costs $10, which includes a background check as part of certification. You must be age 18 or older to participate.  Pay on the day of the class (cash or check only).
  • An optional “Care Team” Certification focuses on how to interact or care for the emotional needs of families who have experienced a disaster. A Care Team class will be held at Alpharetta Methodist May 5, 9 a.m. 3 p.m. The Base ERT class is a prerequisite. This class is free
