As Christians we are called to share God’s love with others. By giving of our time, our talents, and our gifts, we show by example what it means to “go out and be God’s people in the world,” and in so doing, we enrich the lives of those we serve — even as our own lives are enriched by the experience of connecting with God and one another through our gifts and our service. The many ministries of First United Methodist Church of Fort Worth offer a wide array of opportunities to become part of this exciting, dynamic and impactful community of service. Take a look at the opportunities to serve listed below and give prayerful consideration to finding where you fit in.
