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.

Join us and make a difference!

At Alpharetta Methodist, we try to make a difference in people’s lives through ministries (serving members of our church family), missions (serving people locally, regionally and internationally), and committees.

Save Alpharetta Restaurants!

Social-distancing restrictions have been devastating to many local restaurants, and some are in serious financial trouble. The people who own and work at these restaurants are our neighbors, and we want to help them through this difficult time. Some of our Sunday School classes are adopting restaurants and helping them stay afloat by purchasing food or gift cards. Please join us and Save Alpharetta Restaurants!

Awesome Alpharetta has compiled a list of local restaurants that are offering curbside pick-up, take-out and delivery options. And many also offer gift cards.

Whether you pick up your food or have it delivered, please check in on Facebook or Instagram. Consider sharing a photo of the restaurant or your meal — or your family enjoying the food – and tag @alpharetta.methodist and the restaurant’s social media page. Please add the hashtags #SaveAlpharettaRestaurants and #AMsupportslocal to your post.

If we all rally together, we can help to save the restaurants we’ve come to love in Awesome Alpharetta and help our neighbors through this crisis.
