Serve Now

The mission of Alpharetta First United Methodist Church is to win men and women, boys and girls to Jesus Christ. Toward that goal, we strive to be the “hands and feet of Christ” through service to people in our local community, around the globe and in the church family.

Look to this page for the most current — and urgent — volunteer needs. Won’t you step up to be the hands and feet of Christ?
