    Missions and Community

    Serving the World

    Child Reintegration 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 its bloody civil war a decade ago, which left many children without parents or hope for a future. Africa Programs primarily supports two organizations in Bo: the Child Reintegration Center and Mercy Hospital.

    UMCOR Sager Brown

    The UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief) Sager Brown Depot is the hub of UMCOR’s relief-supply operations. Each year, more than 2,000 volunteers prepare about $5 million in supplies for shipment to places around the world affected by disasters. UMCOR Sager Brown reaches out to its local neighbors through food distribution and housing rehabilitation projects, engaging volunteers in these projects that help families and the elderly. They also assist with building of ramps for older adults and people who disabled, work at Chez Hope, the local domestic violence shelter, in their thrift shop and volunteer at Matthew 25 International which conducts outreach work in countries such as Haiti, Peru and India. FUMC Colleyville hosts an annual adult mission trip to UMCOR Sager Brown in Baldwin, Louisiana.

    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

    Coats Against The Cold

    United Methodist Men host an annual campaign between late October and early December to collect cold weather items (coats, jackets, sweatshirts, and hoodies) to be distributed to local agencies that support people who are homeless and families in need. The UMM will distribute collected clothing to GRACE, the 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.

    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 $5 per person (up to $15 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.

    Trunk or Treat

    The church hosts this community fall festival. 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. Each school year we partner with four schools: Glenhope Elementary, Bransford Elementary, Cross Timbers Middle School, 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.
