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?

Operation Oreo Starts May 27

Our annual cookie drive for armed forces deployed overseas begins soon! Our goal this year is maximum participation! During each of the past 3 years, we’ve collected an average of 5.2 tons of Oreos. Please write a note or prayer and attach it to each package of cookies. Place them at the altar when you come to worship on May 27 and Sundays during June. On weekdays, drop off cookies at the administrative office (Mod B at the back of our Cumming St. parking lot). Operation Oreo will culminate on July 1 with our Patriotic Sunday celebration.

Do you have a deployed friend or family member who’d appreciate receiving Oreos? Please send the service member’s name, rank and contact information to Ralph Jordan.

MUST Summer Lunch Program

We’re partnering with Roswell UMC to make and deliver over 1,000 lunches every day this summer! During the school year, many students receive free and reduced lunches, but in the summer, these children could go hungry without the MUST Summer Lunch Program. You can help by getting your small group together and packing lunches for this ministry. Sunday School classes, small Bible study groups, Scouts, student groups and families can participate together. Contact Deedee Muehlbauer for details.
