Do you want to use your God-given gifts and abilities to make a positive impact in people’s lives? We’ve got plenty of opportunities for you to do that.
Serving the world
Our mission team recently returned from a week in Puerto Rico helping with hurricane relief efforts. Our youth are regularly involved in mission trips in- and out-of-state. We take special collections of supplies and funding as needs arise all around our nation and the globe. Our church cares about reaching beyond our walls and our borders as the loving hands of Jesus. You are welcome to be a part of that.
Serving our community
We love our community and are always looking for creative ways to reach our neighbors with the love of Jesus. You can walk the streets with our Prayer Walk team or tend our community garden. You can help out with our annual events like Vacation Bible School, Trunk or Treat, Kid’s Night Out, and our Christmas Stocking Party which provide fun, fellowship and help to hundreds in Glassboro. There are tons of opportunities and new ones are popping up all the time. There’s always room for you.
State Street Trading Post We are collecting toothpaste, toothbrushes, bar soap, shampoo, deodorant/antiperspirant, washcloths and towels, and laundry bags. Cash, of course, is welcome as well. Bring any supplies to a Sunday service or to the office Monday- Friday 9-2pm or to the Samaritan Center Monday and Wednesday 12 – 3pm Questions: email Dave Walters at [email protected] or Kristin Kerr at [email protected]
Serving the church
You can make a difference right here at First UMC. Greet people on Sunday mornings, lead a Sunday School class, serve during worship, help with our audio, video, and social media teams, join our hospitality or care team, sing in the choir, knit a prayer shawl, or find another way to serve that fits your interests and schedule.
Contact Caryn Murtha if you’d like to help with hospitality.
Contact Pastor Tim if you’d like to help with the Digital Media Team. Some of the technical work can be done from home during the week. Much needed are volunteers to operate the technology during the worship services. Can you tap on the “enter/return” button to advance a slide? One of the elements is that easy. Training available.
Ushers are needed for the worship services as the church returns to in-person worship. Contact Rusty Marshall.
