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?

Do Something Race

On Saturday, July 28, everyone is invited to gather at 9:30 am at the Methodist Youth Center (MYC) to share the love of Christ in a unique way. To compete in the race, meet at the MYC and you’ll be divided up into teams. Each team will receive a list of acts of kindness to compete for points. All teams will meet back at the MYC at 12:30 pm, and you guessed it, the team with the most points wins! Join us as we race through the community to share the love of Christ with others. Register here!

Flowers for the Altar

We have openings on the Altar Flower Calendar (July 22, Aug. 19, Sept. 16 and 30, and the entire months of October and November). This is an ideal opportunity for small groups, classes and families to dedicate flowers in honor or memory of someone special. To reserve your date, contact June Carringer.


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.


Student Domestic Mission Trip
