Here are some examples of how we reach out to serve our community:

Trunk or Treat

Easter Festival

Feast of Goodness

National Night Out

Methodist Mission Weekends

Vacation Bible School

Neighborhood Activities

Easter Celebration Egg Hunt, Trunk or Treat, and Vacation Bible School

are open to all children of the neighborhood and the community.

We also host a National Night Out party to fellowship

with our neighbors and members of the community on the first Tuesday in October.

Society of St. Stephen

This organization, staffed by volunteers, provides financial assistance for people in need, including individuals who need assistance with utility bills. Volunteers are needed to speak with those in need, evaluating the necessity of intervention and disbursing funds where appropriate.

Sea Scout Ship 1 Unique

Although Sea Scouts is a program for boys and girls, the unit sponsored by First UMC Palestine is unique in Texas in that it is comprised of all girls.  This is a very active group that participates in local and distant activities.

Local Support Missions

First UMC Palestine believes in supporting ongoing ministries of other churches and private organizations. We provide regular and special support to several local community charities.
