The Mission of First united methodist

Loving our community into becoming followers of Jesus Christ. 

We do this by inviting, welcoming, connecting, growing, serving, and loving. 

  • Project transformation

    Project Transformation provides two key services:

    1. Leadership development and ministry exploration opportunities for college-age young adults through summer internships.
    2. Community-oriented summer day camp programming for children from low-income neighborhoods.

    The young adults provide this second service, giving them authentic, hands-on experiences leading high-quality programs for children and youth and equally important, learning from the children and youth. PT’s programs focus on enriching the body, mind, and spirit, but we place a unique emphasis on literacy. During the summer, each child is paired daily with a volunteer to read one-on-one. Programs are strategically housed in churches in the heart of low-income communities. This partnership between these site churches and Project Transformation is designed so that churches can leverage the program to make new connections and form meaningful relationships with families in their immediate neighborhood.
