Missions and Community

Serving the World

Child Rescue Center

First United Methodist Church of Colleyville is a partner church to Helping Children Worldwide’s Africa Programs, whose goal is to support at-risk children in Bo, Sierra Leone, West Africa. Sierra Leone is consistently rated by the United Nations as one of the poorest countries in the world and has been struggling to rebuild after it’s bloody civil war a decade ago, which left many children without parents or hope for a future. African Programs primarily supports two organizations in Bo: the Child Rescue Centre and Mercy Hospital.

Run for Rescue

Run for Rescue is an annual 5K Run/Walk and 1 Mile Fun Run/Walk that supports the Child Rescue Centre in Sierra Leone, Africa. Run for Rescue is a great race for all levels of runners and walkers. We have some very fast runners, several great teams, lots of runners who jog relatively regularly, and quite a few people that make this their one race per year. We also have folks that bring their dogs or run with strollers – some of whom are very fast, and others that enjoy a good walk.

Youth Mission Trip

The annual summer mission trip allows students to provide clean up and repair services to community in need throughout Texas.

Serving the Community

1000 Coats Against The Cold

United Methodist Men host an annual campaign between December and February to collect cold weather items, coats, jackets, sweatshirts, hoodies to be distributed to local agencies that support people who are homeless and families in need. The UMM will distribute collected clothing to the GRACE, Presbyterian Night Shelter, the Northside Inter-Community Agency (NICA), and the First Street Methodist Mission.

Easter Eggstravaganza

The annual community Easter egg hunt and pancake breakfast needs volunteers for stuffing eggs and cooking breakfast.

Helping Hands

This ministry is funded by the generosity of church members and gives financial assistance to local area residents. If you are in need of assistance please contact Tari Bauer in the church office Monday, Tuesday and Thursday 11 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Este ministerio es financiado por la generosidad de los miembros de la iglesia y da asistencia financiera a los residentes de la zona. Si usted está en necesidad de ayuda, por favor póngase en contacto con Tari Bauer en la oficina de la iglesia Lunes, Martes y Jueves 11 a.m.-4 p.m.

Neighborhood Table

The Neighborhood Table is a community meal on the second Wednesday of each month from 6:00-7:00 p.m. Each month we invite and honor a different partner or group from the community. The meal is free to first-time guests and the people from our city and community we will honor each month.  Members of the church are encouraged to make the love offering of $6 per person (up to $18 per family).

Project Read

Project Read is an outreach ministry to serve struggling readers in local elementary schools within Grapevine-Colleyville ISD.  From late September through late May, volunteers meet with their assigned students once a week for 30 minutes during school hours under the direction of the student’s teacher.  The scheduled time is based on the student’s availability and teacher’s classroom schedule.  It is a fun and uplifting opportunity to connect with the community and to find your own blessings along the way. Volunteers must complete the GCISD Volunteer application process and background checks each school year.

Soles for GRACE

This annual shoe drive supports the children served by our local mission partner, GRACE.


The church hosts this community fall festival at Colleyville City Park. More than 1,000 people from Colleyville and the surrounding communities attend each year. Volunteers are needed to decorate trunks, hand out candy, and welcome guests.

Weekend Meal Program

Our church partners with FUMC Grapevine to provide weekend meals for children living in poverty in Grapevine-Colleyville ISD. In the 2016-2017 school year, we will assist three schools- Glenhope Elementary, Bransford Elementary, and Colleyville Heritage High School. Each week a group in our church packs and delivers the meals to the school, so that no child in our school district has to go without food during the weekend.
