World Missions

"...go and make disciples of all nations..."

Jesus, Matthew 28:19


For almost twenty years, First Methodist has sent mission teams around the world, working to fulfill the Lord's command to make disciples of all nations.  In recent years, our international mission focus has been Nicaragua.  The Lord has enabled us to send medical mission teams, youth teams, construction teams, and water well repair teams to some of the most remote parts of that Central American nation.  In partnership with Puentes de Esperanza, we've evangelized villages and made Christ known to peoples in the second poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere.

First Methodist is part of a network of churches throughout the United States which participate in Operation Christmas Child.  By packing a few small gift items into a shoe box, our members help children in impoverished areas around the world experience the love of Jesus at Christmas.
