  • Mission of the Month

    The March Mission of the Month is SOAR Fox Cities. Their mission is to build A Community where all individuals can be actively involved and have opportunities to maximize their potential. With a vision to empower people with differing abilities through program activities, respite opportunities and a place to feel comfortable and find support, they serve people with developmental disabilities, traumatic brain injuries and their families.

    SOAR's wish list includes items for crafts, duct tape of various colors/patterns, mailers and fliers such as copy paper - white and colored and any color card stock (letter size), small prizes such as pens, notepads, lip balm, hand lotions, water bottles, new stuffed animals, etc. They would love cases of bottled water for their large gatherings and healthy snacks. They do maintain an Amazon wish list also so check it out! Also see the display board for program guides, volunteer opportunities and to see all the good things SOAR is up to. Thank you for supporting our area non-profits!

  • Hands-On Ministry Opportunities

    Are you looking for ways to live out your faith by serving those in need in our local community? Does your employer offer time-off to participate in volunteer activities? Each month, First Church will provide opportunities for anyone to participate in hands-on volunteering opportunities throughout our local community.

    Opportunities to volunteer for Ruby’s Pantry will be the first Tuesday of each month at First English Lutheran. Be sure to enter Appleton, WI as your primary location, and indicate that you are part of a First United Methodist Church group, with Donna Frick as Contact Person. The volunteer coordinator from First English will be in contact to confirm your participation.

    Volunteer for Ruby's Pantry

    Each spring a dedicated group spends a few hours on our First Church Spring Yard Clean-up.  On Saturday, April 29 from 9 am - noon we will be getting our beautiful yard ready for the season.  People can bring rakes, buckets/bins, trimmers, clippers, diggers (shovels to small trowels), empty pots for items that can be split for the plant sale, and any other yard tools they may have.  We are also in need of one or two pick-up trucks or trailers to take yard waste to one of the Appleton Yard Waste locations. Please indicate what tools you can bring.  Sign-up deadline is April 22.  Rain date will be May 6.

  • Prayer Request

    Our Befriender Ministry exists to pray with you and for you, and is honored to lift your concerns and joys to God in total confidence and without judgment.
    “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”    Philippians 4:6-7
