How We Serve
Around the Corner
and Around the World

Alpharetta Methodist’s mission is “to win men and women, boys and girls to Jesus Christ.” Toward that goal, we strive to be the “hands and feet of Christ” by serving people in our local community, around the globe and in the church family.

 

Outreach opportunities are grouped into 3 categories:

  • In the Church: Ministries are expressions of faith that primarily serve our faith community. Anyone can volunteer to help with a ministry.
  • Outside the Church: Missions are expressions of faith that serve people outside the Alpharetta Methodist family. Specific mission programs serve locally, regionally and internationally. Everyone is welcome to volunteer.
  • Administrative Committees: These groups support the operations of the church. Administrative Committees usually support specific areas. Nominees to serve on administrative committees are recommended by the Committee on Nominations and approved at the annual Charge Conference.
