Live and Share God's Love


Here at First United Methodist Church, a person has all sorts of ways to serve – inside the building and in the wider communities, with indoor quiet work, with tasks that involve sweat equity. There are ways for each person to contribute to building God’s realm on earth. Below are just a few of the ways.

Fall All-Church Clean-Up

Saturday, November 10
9:00 AM – 2:00 PM

  • Please come and help the Aesthetics Team and the members of the Board of Trustees get our church ready for Advent and the Christmas season.
  • Projects will include deep cleaning of the Sanctuary, Chapel, Parlor, BK Smith Room, Fellowship Hall and other heavily used locations in our building. Weather permitting, we may wash some windows and do yard work, too!
  • Please bring hand vacuums, buckets and any favorite cleaning supplies to supplement what we have available at church.
  • Coffee, juice, donut holes and muffins will be provided in the morning.
  • Sloppy Joes, buns and beverages will be provided at noon – please bring a side dish or dessert if you are joining us for lunch.
  • Come for an hour or two or more and help us make our church look even more beautiful!
  • Remember – this is YOUR church!!! Please help if you can!

Office Caretakers

Can you sit in a chair? Are you able to talk on the phone? Then pray about joining the church staff for a couple of hours each week or month in the church office. Our administrative assistance works from 8:30 to 1:30. After that we count on servants from the church to be present to answer phone calls and direct inquiries.This could be the ministry God is calling you to join!

Sanctuary or Chapel Steward.

Are you someone who likes to have everything in order? Do you care about Sunday morning worship and look forward to it each week? Do you perhaps feel a tug on your heart to make sure that our worship space is at its best for the Big Day? Then you may be called to serve as a Worship Space Steward.

…the Human One didn’t come to be served but rather to serve and to give his life to liberate many people.

 Mark 10:45

Prayer Shawls Ministry

Does doing something special for a person who is going through a tough time fill your heart with joy? Do you enjoy working with yarn? You might like to consider joining our faithful Prayer Shawls Ministry folks. They gather together monthly to knit or crochet, share stories from people who were recipients of shawls, have a bit of bible study and connect with each other. Contact Marian at 715.536.6399.

Worship Monies Counter

Are you good with numbers and recording them? Would you like to be a part of the Sunday worship experience but prefer a behind the scenes role? You might be just the person God is calling to join our Sunday morning money counter corps. Contact Martie at 715.842.2201.

Have you thought of helping as a volunteer at your local school? Or at the Women’s Community? Or at The Open Door? Or at any other of the many agencies in our communities? Maybe you have an idea of your own… God calls us to a variety of ministries. Some of them are with or through the church. Many are not. Pray about where God would lead you. Then step out. It can be intimidating at first, but the satisfaction is priceless.
